There is more to the consequences of getting arrested than you thought
The consequences you suffer from getting arrested stretch beyond your boundaries into those of others. Your most loved ones feel the ramifications just as much as you do, something many forget when they act in bad judgment. Not only do you have to deal with the fact that you actually got arrested and now have a point on your criminal record, but you also have to work to mend your relationship with your loved ones and gain their trust back. Moreover, you will likely have to explain the situation to your employer.
As for the other side of the situation, those who were not arrested but affected by the situation, they must decide how to mold their relationship with you from this point on. Between figuring out how they want to punish you and when they can forgive you, they will be the ones to look out for you and make sure you are being a good person for yourself. It is an emotional and unpredictable rollercoaster. And that is a consequence of your action.
Avoid this unnecessary stress and strain for your loved ones and yourself and stay out of trouble, please! You know the consequences of bad judgment – why even risk it?
But we know sometimes people can get a little out of control and a situation can quickly escalate, whatever the cause or reason may be. You might end up in jail, at fault or not.
