** One example is [[spoiler: Flack's LoveInterest, Angell]], who's shot in the season 5 finale while protecting a DonaldTrump[=/=]UsefulNotes/RupertMurdoch {{expy}}'s son (who was due to testify against him; [[spoiler: the killers turn out to be kidnappers, who knew this would put [[RedHerring immediate suspicion on their target's father]]]]). The episode also ends with [[spoiler: the bar they're holding a wake for her in being shot up in a drive-by]]. Nobody's killed (although Danny ends up in a wheelchair for a while), but it fits the trope in spirit.

** Mac with Chief Carver and Carver's nephew in "Justified". The nephew, who killed his abusive mother feeling he had no choice, would have to stand trial for manslaughter but likely wouldn't get prison time, and Carver wouldn't be tried, just forced into early retirement and stripped of his pension. Not a complete let off, but still showing leniency.

* SpannerInTheWorks: Many a killer has seen their plan for the "perfect" crime undone by anything from bad weather to an unexpected wrinkle to a tiny detail they thought would never be noticed.
** A therapist kills her husband and makes it look like he was murdered by a crazed patient who she then shoots in "self-defense" before setting up the crime scene. Stella lampshades that the woman never counted on the possibility the CSI team would be literally right around the corner at another murder scene, hear the shots and arrive before the doctor could clear up all the evidence.

* MedicationTampering: In "Blood Actually", the killer swaps a diabetic victim's insulin for sugar syrup, so that when he goes to inject himself with insulin, he is in fact shooting up more sugar.

* AmoralAttorney: These guys show up every so often as villains. One example is serial rapist D.J. Pratt's lawyer and a guy who [[spoiler:irradiates a copy of the Tibetan Book of the Dead with thallium in an attempt to defraud the city; this led to two radiation deaths and nearly got Sid killed as well.]]



* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: Every so often the [=CSIs=] will find a body that has fallen on something blunt. One example: A body that fell off a balcony and landed on a sharp ice sculpture.



* ImplausibleSynchrony: The 333 killer will time certain events to happen exactly at 3:33, and he can rest assured that Mac ''will'' be freaked out when he looks at his watch.

** There is one specific rapist in the second season named D.J. Pratt who goes out of his way to rape the same woman '''twice''', the second time after he was acquitted of the first rape. This turns him into Aiden's ArchEnemy when the rape victim comes to her and turns him into a SmugSnake ArcVillain for the season; her pursuit of Pratt leads her to tamper with evidence, [[spoiler:get her fired, and eventually get her killed by Pratt; that murder is how they bring him down after he and his lawyer show arrogance towards the CSIs and after he rapes a prostitute in another episode (said prostitute, in an attempt to get away from him, tripped and [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice fell onto a spike]]]]. Pratt is one of the most stuck-up enemies on the show.

* RecruitedFromTheGutter: One VictimOfTheWeek was an up-and-coming musician who was a homeless drug addict until his girlfriend and her band took him in. [[spoiler: It turns out that they'd been invoking this trope; rescuing a drug addict to join their band and [[MakeItLookLikeAnAccident arranging a relapse/overdose]] when their life insurance had "matured" enough to give them a big payout.]]

** Two seasons later, during the Cabbie Killer saga, the team discovers that a student at an Ivy League prep school and his father [[spoiler:are in fact two-fully grown men who are using the school and parties to prey on female student; one of the rape victims is the daughter of one of Mac's antagonistic comrades from the previous season. Bonus points for them having records. They are arrested for both the rapes and for the "son" having killed a counselor who confronted him about the issue when the daughter informed him of the rape and a new attempt, but the officer shoots him [[KilledOffscreen dead offscreen; all we hear is the gun shot.]]]]

* JustOneLittleMistake: The only mistake the second killer in "Criminal Justice" makes is [[spoiler: he planted the evidence after Hawkes had sprayed for footprints at the scene, and the distribution of chemicals on the evidence alerts the team to the fact the evidence was planted after]]. Otherwise he nearly commits ThePerfectCrime. Which makes sense, because [[spoiler: he's a DA, and has fifteen years of experience with criminals and the crime lab to know how they work]]. Also a case of MurderTheHypotenuse.
