*** Well, technically, none of those things were crimes [[spoiler: 'cept maybe dumping the body and cleaning the crime scene up, and perhaps wasting police time, but that's, by comparison, pretty trivial. Both deaths were accidents]], and it's implied they believe him. So he might actually have been let off anyway.

* ''Series/HowToGetAwayWithMurder'' pretty much runs on this. Every character is sooner rather than later a murderer, a murder accomplice, commiting crimes to cover up murder, framing somebody else for murder, framing themselves for murder commiting crimes to get out of said framing or otherwise doing very bad things to hide a very bad thing they did in the past. And since the web of lies is ever expanding in severity and number of people involved, every time there's more people willing to do worse things to get out of trouble.

* ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney''''Franchise/AceAttorney'':



** The BigBad of ''Trials and Tribulations'' [[spoiler: Dahlia Hawthorne]], who killed their sister to keep her from talking about a fake kidnapping they had staged years ago to steal a jewel from their family.[[labelnote:spoiler]]After that, she (count with us now!) 1) tried to frame her ex-boyfriend who was already convicted by the staged kidnapping; 2) when he was about to be cleared she convinced him to commit suicide so he wouldn't tell the truth to the court; 3) poisoned a lawyer that was tracking her; 4) hid the poison with a young Phoenix, disguising it as a gift of love; 5) she tried to get the poison back from him by killing him, only to end up killing another ex-boyfriend and 6) framing Phoenix for it. After that she was finally convicted and ''executed'', but still 7) returned from the dead years later to try to kill Maya, the sister of the lawyer (Mia) that got Dahlia on prison, to have her revenge. Note that she didn't go for directly killing Mia because Mia was already dead in the interim.[[/labelnote]]
** Almost as bad is [[spoiler: Kristoph Gavin]], the man who winds up causing most of the troubles before and during ''Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney''. [[spoiler: It all starts with Kristoph wanting to successfully win a high profile murder case, with him serving as the defence while his brother is the prosecutor. To that end he hires a forger to manufacture a piece of faulty evidence (Crime #1) that will exonerate his client (who, as it turned out, was innocent all along, meaning ''[[CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot absolutely none of this was necessary in the first place]]''). In order to avoid being accused of forgery, he attempts to poison both the forger (#2) and his daughter (#3) (who was the one actually responsible for the forgery). But before he can have his day in court, his client abruptly fires him for being untrustworthy and instead hires Phoenix Wright. Enraged, Kristoph surreptitiously passes off the forged evidence to Wright while informing his brother of its existence; thus, when Wright brings up the evidence in trial, he's immediately accused of forging evidence and disbarred (#4). The defendant manages to flee before the trial can continue, but Kristoph eventually tracks him down and kills him (#5) while framing Wright for the deed (#6).]] Pretty ridiculous considering this whole thing sprung out of a desire to win one case.[[/folder]]
