even still, you'd be surprised how easily you can get caught up in a felony without intending to do ANYTHING even remotely against the law. We have the highest per capita amount of people incarcerated in the entire world. We are 5% of the world's population, and 24% of the jailed world population. Disparate indeed.
It's all too easy to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and get dinged with a felony. No shortage of these stories.
