How to use jail in a sentence?

  1. Raymond Chandler:

    In jail a man has no personality. He is a minor disposal problem and a few entries on reports. Nobody cares who loves or hates him, what he looks like, what he did with his life. Nobody reacts to him unless he gives trouble. Nobody abuses him. All that is asked of him is that he go quietly to the right cell and remain quiet when he gets there. There is nothing to fight against, nothing to be mad at. The jailers are quiet men without animosity or sadism. All this stuff you read about men yelling and screaming, beating against the bars, running spoons along them, guards rushing in with clubs -- all that is for the big house. A good jail is one of the quietest places in the world. Life in jail is in suspension.

  2. Curt Schilling:

  3. Anna Frankowska:

    The government increase in jail time is not an effective tool.

  4. David Hill:

    I will spend the rest of my life in jail.

In terms of possible penalties, Scott Applewhite -RRB- Noti said that Ocasio-Cortezs campaign could be facing FEC fines if it followed bad legal advice and made reporting errors. But civil or even criminal fraud statutes, as opposed to campaign finance laws, would potentially kick in if it were determined that Saikat Chakrabarti had intentionally tried to hide the money to use for illicit expenses. Meanwhile, Former FEC commissioner Brad Smith told the Daily Caller News Foundations investigative unit that, because Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez apparently held legal control of Justice Democrats PACwhile Justice Democrats PAC was supporting Scott Applewhite -RRB- Noti campaign, thetwo committees were likely acting as affiliated committees -- andtherefore share a single contribution limit of $ 2,700 that might have been exceeded. If this were determined to be knowing and willful, they could be facing jail time, even if its not knowing and willful, it would be a clear civil violation of the act, which would require disgorgement of the contributions and civil penalties. I think theyve got some real issues here. Mondays filingcomes on the heels of a separate complaint by theWashington, D.C.-based Coolidge Reagan Foundation, which alleged last week that theBrand New New York Democratic Congressional PACmay have illegally funneled thousands of dollars to Riley Roberts, Riley Roberts. It was firstreported late last month that Justice Democrats PAC paid Riley Roberts during the early days of the Ocasio-Cortez campaign.According to FEC records, Justice Democrats PAC made two payments to Roberts one in August 2017 and one in September 2017 both for $ 3,000.
