Example Question #3 : Typologies Of Crime
Which of the following is considered to be a victimless crime?
Victimless crimes include crimes or offenses that involve a private exchange of illegal goods or services. Participants may not feel as though they are being harmed; however, victimless crimes are prosecuted on the ground that society—as a whole—is being injured. The only choice that represents a victimless crime is "drug sales." "Burglary" and "embezzlement" are property crimes, while "panhandling" and "public drunkenness" are public order crimes.
