7 Common Crimes in America

 

You may not think about it often but it is pretty easy to land yourself in jail if you make a simple mistake. There are numerous crimes, such as trespassing and littering that may seem relatively small, but can carry pretty heavy consequences. Chances are, you won't get arrested for those but it is possible. However, should you commit any of the following, you'll likely be doing time.

Property Crimes

Property crimes include burglary, larceny and theft. These may all sound like the same crime but they have their differences, such as some require the use of entering another's private property, while other just mean you're taking it.

Assault

Causing bodily harm to someone is going to land you in the slammer. This is, sadly, an incredibly common crime, with more than one million offenses per year in the USA.

DUI

If you are going to go out drinking, take a cab! Diving under the influence is one of the most common crimes in America.

Possession

Marijuana may be legal in a few states, including California, but other drugs, such as cocaine, will still be your ticket to a jail cell.

Disorderly Conduct

Disorderly conduct is defined differently depending on your jurisdiction, but it basically means that you are posing a threat to society.

Vandalism

Breaking a window or writing graffiti are two ways to find yourself in the back of a cop car. However, you may be cited and released depending on the damages.

Weapons Charges

If you carry a concealed weapon but do not have a license for you, you can be arrested and charged with felony possession of a gun, as well as other crimes depending on the situation.
