* Criminal charges in general tend to get this sort of thing, usually because the criminal in question tends to commit a number of lesser crimes in pursuit of their main crime (for instance, reckless driving to evade arrest) [[MinorCrimeRevealsMajorPlot or are originally detained for something minor before evidence of a greater crime is found]]. For example, you get stopped for speeding. The breathalyzer test shows you were driving under the influence of alcohol. Then a routine search of the vehicle turns up the massive stash of drugs in the trunk you were hurrying to get rid of... Another reason for including lesser charges is that sometimes those are the only ones that actually stick. So if the prosecutor isn't sure about a major charge sticking, they will pile on the minor ones they ''can'' make stick, and the total time a defendant ends up serving for all those little things isn't much smaller than the time the one big charge would bring (or in jurisdictions where prison sentences does not stack at least ensure the criminal will get ''a'' sentence, if not as long and harsh as desired).
