When the Bad Guy is sentenced, his crime is published on the web. He gets 30 days in the slammer courtesy of tax money*. After that, it is up to various PRIVATE organizations, charities and individuals to provide his upkeep in the form of Prison Scholarships. When the scholarship money runs out, the Bad Guy gets sprung.
Examples: Dave is convicted of structuring (an obscure victimless financial crime). Dave's sentence, a description of his crime and the law he was convicted of violating is published under New Felons and in the Structuring Database. Joe Average has no interest whatsoever in locking people up for structuring, so Dave gets sprung in 30 days.
Or Kent gets popped with 29 grams of marijuana (a stupid victimless crime law). Kent's sentence, a description of his crime and the law he was convicted of violating is published under New Felons and in the Drug Possession Database. Jane Average has no interest whatsoever in locking people up for marijuana possession, so Kent gets sprung in 30 days.
Jeff is convicted of mayhem, cannibalism, baby raping and multiple counts of murder one. A description of his crime and the laws he was convicted of violating are published under New Felons and in the Horrible Crimes Database. Funds pour in from all over the world to keep Jeff in the slammer until the prison is compelled to put the extra money in the 30 day fund because it has more than enough to support Jeff for the rest of his life.
This way, "society" can speak very clearly on every conviction.
