    Every historical period has had its share of people who break the law and are punished for it, and the Elizabethan Age had extremely severe penalties for stealing, murdering, or committing treason. The consequences of such lawbreaking activities were not always the same for different individuals -- how you were treated if you were accused of a crime depended on whether you were poor or rich, a commoner or a noble. Crimes were classified as either misdemeanors or capital offenses.

    A minor offense, as in the breaking of a city law, is termed "misdemeanor". The penalties are of a lesser nature than a felony (murder, grand theft), but are designed to warn the individual that he/she must abide by the rules. Common crimes in the Elizabethan Age included:

    Though many of today''''s crimes may be similar to those in Elizabethan England, the methods of punishment have definitely changed a lot. Most of the punishments of the Elizabethan period would be deemed cruel and unusual by today''''s standards. The death penalty can no longer be enacted in cases of theft or highway robbery. The following paragraphs will describe the various instruments of punishment (torture) of the period.

    One out of the ordinary punishment of the Elizabethan Era was the drunkard''''s cloak. It was a punishment for public drunkenness; the name of it is somewhat misleading. The flaw in the name comes from the fact that the cloak is less a cloak and more a barrel. The drunk was forced to don a barrel and wander through town while the villagers jeer at him. Holes were cut in the barrel for the person''''s hands and head, causing it to become like a heavy, awkward shirt.
