If they only served a partial sentence, are they restricted likewise? For example, if I am accused of stealing $4.5 billion worth of music, but can only pay the music industry $30,000 before I am found to be innocent, instead of getting the money back can I steal the two songs I paid for?

Since the idea in the OP is patently stupid, I'll stoop to pointing out that in our criminal justice system people aren't found innocent -- only "not guilty".

Or if I'm convicted of murder and serve half my time, am I only allowed to scare somebody half to death, or can I knock them into a coma? This is getting complicated, but I like the path you're taking this in.

Who IS this masked man? And WHY has he never been photographed together with 6 year old millionaire playboy Calvin?

Wasn't this a movie with Tommy Lee Jones and Ashley Judd?

I am proud to have opposed those who describe all who oppose them as "Tender Flowers" and "Special Snowflakes".

Here I thought I remembered it from Crisis on Infinite Earths. Didn't the Flash entertain the possibility of beating some guy to death?

This reminds me of the time Bart Simpson asked the Sunday school teacher if he had a leg amputated and then died and went to heaven would his leg be there waiting for him?

Out of the Un known used the idea that you can serve time for a crime volunterlay and thus get a ticket to commite the crime (in the story two people serve time for murder, you can figure out the rest).

Call Darth stupid if you want, but this is just a fun hypothetical. OK, to be fair, he may actually believe that, but WE can use it as a fun hypothetical.

I've definitely used this logic against my parents before... well, in my head as I justified breaking rules.

People use the same logic to cheat on their spouses... "Well if you're going to be paranoid and act like I'm cheating on you, I might as well" etc.

In a lower scale, the government could sell voluntary citations/fines, when pre-paid, that entitles one to do the offence at your leisure. They could be called, for lack of a real term, indulgences.

Nothing new there... that's how the entire political system already works.
