* A rather dark example in the second ''Film/{{Fletch}}'' movie; the protagonist asks the cellmate - a huge, scary-looking guy - and the guy answers "molesting a dead horse". (Fortunately for Fletch, that's when the cops come in to move the guy.)

* In ''Literature/BloodsuckingFiends'' by Creator/ChristopherMoore, the protagonist, Tommy, is in jail. He asks his cell mate what he's in for, and the man replies 'copyright infringement', which he admits isn't really the sort of offense they put you in jail for. Ripping a lawyer's arms out of their sockets, however, is.

* In ''Help I Am Being Held Prisoner'' by Donald Westlake, the protagonist played a silly prank that ended in a traffic accident. Because said accident resulted in the exposure of a politician's unsavory sexual habits, said politician pulls strings so the protagonist will get punished as hard as possible. Because of this his sentence and the description of his crime, while ambigously vague, make him sound like a hardened, inhuman murderer - so the toughest gang in prison recruit him to their schemes...

* ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'': Shepard can ask this of an [=NPC=] on the Purgatory PrisonShip. He casually explains that he killed a few people - only about twenty or so -- and blew up "that one habitat". This is apparently small-time by Purgatory standards.

** Later, Sam talks his way into a night in jail (which requires effort because the Warden refuses to take him because of how many times he's escaped); when another inmate asks him what he's in for, he replies, "Meatloaf night!".

** This has been made much worse by universal access to computers and the rise of social media. It used to be possible (if unlikely) for someone to successfully hide their criminal history. These days, it takes five minutes for an inmate's girlfriend/sibling/friend to look up court records, and prisoners ''will'' learn what each other did.
