Code of Laws

Sovereign State of San Andreas
Code of Laws

Defines all possible charges that can be committed by any citizen or non-citizen of the Sovereign State of San Andreas and the charges which law enforcement officers/Judicial judges may use when charging a criminal that has broken the law.


Definitions -
Misdemeanor - a less serious type of criminal act which does not result in any noticeable harm being done to any individual or the State, a misdemeanor which results in major harm or injury to an individual should be considered a felony.

Felony - a serious criminal act against an individual or the State that results in damage to property, life or liberty, or any other serious consequences.

Major felony - the highest possible criminal act against an individual (or an individual group) or the State that results in enormous loss of life, damage to property, or overall poses a great threat to the State, its existence and its stability.

Obstruct - Anything that causes a lessening of effectiveness or sight, such as obstructing justice would result in the hampered effectiveness of law enforcement operations, potentially jeopardizing the success of an operation.

Impersonate - To make another believe that you are a person of authority, title, rank, or importance that you are not, either through verbal means or by dressing in a specific uniform that a civilian should not be in possession of.

Conspiracy - To plan to do, or make various steps in order to complete a task, either solo or conspiring with accomplices.

NOTE - No charges with "conspiracy to ..." will be listed, as any crime can be conspired to be committed, thus an LEO may feel free to add "conspiracy to" before the actual charge if the suspect in question had planned to commit the crime, but failed in doing so (and the appropriate number of the actual charge without conspiracy can be added, at the LEO's discretion).

Yield - To give right of way to, or to let pass.

Attempted - The act of trying to accomplish a task that ultimately fails due to some circumstances.

NOTE - Multiple charges can have the "Attempted" "prefix" added to them if the individual attempted to commit the crime, but failed to do so (ex. Attempted Robbery). This is up to the interpretation of the legal systems of San Andreas.

Public servant - an official employed within any San Andreas Government or Law Enforcement agency.

LEO/Peace Officer - an official employed within any San Andreas law enforcement agency (including private military companies approved of by the State).

Unlawful assembly - any assembly which is in violation of the law.

Solicitation - recommending, suggesting or encouraging someone to commit a crime.

NOTE - May be added to various charges (the "Solicitation to Prostitution" charge is separate and does not need the adding of this "tag").

Attachment (vehicular) - any objects that have been installed (or simply attached through the use of glue, other sticky substance or laws of physics), either removable or permanent, on a vehicle, that do not come with the default factory setup.

It is not necessary to add any information in brackets in the actual entry charge, thus if the offense is written as "2-1-34 Failure to pay vehicle fine (speeding/parking tickets)" in the Code of Laws, the charge should be written as "2-1-34 Failure to pay vehicle fine".

The use of Code of Laws numbers (ex. 2-1-34, that shows which section the charge is in) is not necessary, but highly recommended for organisational & administration purposes.
