** ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire'' - Several Death Eaters or suspected Death Eaters were imprisoned after Voldemort's fall, regardless of whether they were truly guilty. It's implied that the head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement, [[HangingJudge Barty Crouch, Sr.]], wanted quick and convincing trials (or sometimes no trial at all) because he was in line for the Minister's job. He even sent his own son to Azkaban, though in that case his son was openly proud of being a Death Eater.

* Happens a number of times in ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures''. One incident that really sticks out is in the TT version of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, where the role of Goldilocks is played by animal abuser Elmyra. After breaking into the three bears' house, trashing everything, messing with their stuff, followed by causing great pain and abuse to the bears, upon being summoned by the bears' alarm, instead of arresting Elmyra, the police mistaken the bears for wild creatures, capture them, and haul them to the zoo!

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheInspector'', the Inspector gets arrested when a criminal [[IdenticalStranger who looks like him]] robs a bank and runs past him. The criminal is never captured and the Inspector spends the entire episode in prison, ending with him trying to chisel the Rock of Gibraltar in order to be paroled.

* In one of the gravest public blunders of the Italian judiciary system, Enzo Tortora was wrongfully sentenced to ten years of prison after accusations of being a member of the Camorra involved in drug trafficking, based on paper-thin evidence and the claims of a mentally unstable [[UsefulNotes/TheMafia pentito]]. What's notable is the fact the the guy was a beloved ''TV Host''; when his ordeal ended and was allowed back to the scenes, now physically worn out and struggling with cancer, he famously started off the show by simply saying [[{{Badass}} "Well then, where did we leave off?"]].

** From there, you have to make a big decision: [[spoiler:Murder an honorable but bloodthirsty leader to escape and let a crime lord and his entire operation go free, or work with the leader to kill the crimelord but lose control of the mob, killing a dozen innocents along the way]]. You can also kill both factions but then you've just massacred two entire factions for each others' leader's crimes and stolen decades of potential social reforms from the people of Markarth.

* As discussed above under "Film", ''Film/10RimmingtonPlace'' is based on the true story of John Christie, one of Britain's most prolific and notorious {{Serial Killer}}s, who was the star witness at the trial which managed to see Timothy Evans, the husband and father of two of his victims, convicted and executed of the murders that Christie himself committed. When Christie's own crimes were exposed, the public outcry over this miscarriage was one of the key factors in the public movement which eventually resulted in Britain abolishing the death penalty for capital crimes.
