Treatment of women convicts

There were major inequality in punishments and the treatment of men and women, most often men were treated better.

Social classes & Area

Your punishments determined on your social classes and your region. The higher your social class, the lesser you are punished. The severity of your punishment also relied on your closeness of your area to the rulers of your land.

Age/Juvenile Crime

Lastly, your age weighed in heavily on your conviction. Children and minors were given significantly lesser jail time, if they were given any at all.
