Question by Eric E: How are victim less crimes prosecuted without violating the constitution?
If you are charged with a victim less crime (driving without a license, possessing drugs) How do they prosecute you without violating the constitution?
You have the right to an impartial judge and impartial jury of your peers. So if it is the “STATE” VS YOU. (the state meaning the people of) and the judge is from the state and the jury is also. That would violate your rights protected by the constitution. The victim cannot be the judge and the jury and your attorney too. Waiting for some smart answers!
Answer by WRG
All criminal acts are the State v. The Defendant. The judge takes an oath when taking office that he will be impartial. The jury of your peers would be people from your state.
