** Played reasonably straight with Dr. Merlot [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20090518 here]]. After several cryptographers on loan from Baron Wulfenbach discovered the true identity of the late Dr. Beetle's assistant Merlot tried to hide his letting the last of the Heterodynes slip through his fingers by burning the notes, whatever secret labs of Dr.Beetle he could find, the hall of records, and ''the cryptographers''. Clearly, his sentence to Castle Heterodyne was [[NeverMyFault all "Miss Clay's" fault]].

* The first half of ''Manga/DeathNote'' involves this. At first, Light receives the Death Note, but thinks it must be a prank. He tests it out on two people, and finds out that it really does work. At this point, he decides to kill criminals, but then the police start to get suspicious, so he starts killing people who are connected with the investigation, as well as criminals.

* In Dark Sarah's "A Grim Christmas Story", a woman murders her husband on the Second Day of Christmas for lying to her. On each of the subsequent days of Christmas, she murders someone else, usually because they're asking why somebody she killed in a previous verse is missing (Plus one count of MurderTheHypotenuse). In the last verse she poisons some policemen who have realized that she's the common thread behind all the disappearances and flees the area.

*** 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 thats, by comparison, pretty trivial. Both deaths were accidents]], and its implied they believe him. So he might actually have been let off anyway.

* ''Literature/NickVelvet'': A comparitively mild example happens in "The Theft of the Banker's Ashtray", where Nick ends up up having to steal the same ashtray twice (and the ashtray is actually stolen three times). Nick is peeved because he gets paid for one theft.
