same offense

A quick definition of same offense:

Same offense: When someone breaks the law, it's called an offense or a crime. Same offense means doing the same crime more than once. For example, if someone steals something and gets caught, then steals something else later, those are both the same offense because they're both stealing.

A more thorough explanation:

Definition: Same offense refers to a violation of the law, which is also known as a criminal offense. It can be a minor crime or a major one, such as a felony or a misdemeanor. The terms "crime," "offense," and "criminal offense" are often used interchangeably.

Examples:

  • Acquisitive offense: This refers to a crime that involves the unlawful appropriation of someone else's property, such as theft or larceny.
  • Allied offense: This is a crime that has elements similar to another crime, and the commission of one automatically means the commission of the other. For example, if someone commits robbery, they also commit assault.
  • Anticipatory offense: This is an inchoate offense, which means it is a crime that has not yet been committed but is being planned. For example, if someone plans to commit a robbery and takes steps towards it, they can be charged with an anticipatory offense.
  • Arrestable offense: In English law, this refers to an offense for which the punishment is fixed by law or for which a statute authorizes imprisonment for five years or more. This includes crimes such as murder, rape, and robbery.

The examples illustrate the different types of offenses that can be considered the same offense. They show that a crime can be classified in different ways, depending on its nature and the legal system in which it is being prosecuted.

Idk I doubt they can give you 10k cash, lmao, but who knows!
Others will disagree, but max out a credit card if you have to do so.
It's 10K. Not 100K.

10K at 21.51% interest. Lol
19:47
Yeah I would definitely disagree. Without family help when could they realistically pay that off?

If someone can live below the student budget at GULC loans could cover an extra $10K, but Grad PLUS loans still amount to $2 in repayment for every $1 borrowed on a 10-year plan at current interest rates. Not a choice to make lightly.
