Crime and Punishment
- Ankh-Morpork Council rules
- Theft by non-thieves is punished by Thieves Guild heavies (npcs) with escalating punishments for repeated offenses.
- Going to jail for stealing does not clear the pending punishment from the Thieves Guild heavies the next time they recognize you.
- Witches singing the Hedgehog Song get prosecuted by the musicians' guild enforcer who does not refrain from corporal punishment including making you pass out, broken legs and contracts with the Guild of Assassins.
- Various other things are punishable by the Watch if you are seen doing them. (Watchmen will pursue you and tell you to surrender/give up and then attack you after a short wait. You can "give up", at which point you're sent to jail for a time (which varies based on what you did and how much), then let out.) See below.
- You can also turn yourself in at the main hall of Pseudopolis Yard.

While the jail time stacks to some degree (so that, for example, two counts of miming will get you twice as much time as only one count), it appears that you can only be sentenced to up to 3 hours and 20 minutes Disc time (an hour real time) at once.
You can bail yourself or someone else out. This costs $25, plus an additional $25 for every 16-17 minutes (or 5 minutes in real time) remaining on the sentence.
- The name of the charge can vary depending on whether it's being said by an officer trying to arrest you, told to you when you're thrown in jail, or on a wanted poster, and possibly based on other factors as well.
- In Disc time.
- If you're still wearing the badge when you're thrown in jail, it will be confiscated and not returned.
- They warn you twice before trying to arrest you. They reject the give offers.
