Hello,
This thread contains the current and comprehensive law book of the Monolith RP server. This document is meant to act as a State or Federal level of law above the mayors normal in game laws as well as to give more detail on individual laws and their punishments. The law book is separated into separate sections under different acts. These sections will contain all of the city's laws regarding things such as traffic laws, violent acts such as assault, trespassing, and the rest. Everyone may view the max punishments that can be handed out for each respective crime under each laws "Punishment:" section directly following each law. These punishments are not an exact amount that should be handed out but are instead the max amount that can be given, or the max amount you can be sentenced to jail depending on the discretion of the officer.

This law book also sets in place the rights entitled to all Monolith citizens from their basic human rights, and the rights they are entitled to upon being placed under arrest. They are not required to read you these rights but you do have them, and are always free to exercise them.

The lawbook is attached to the thread. It can also be accessed here!

REMINDER: To clarify any confusion the only weapons that can be owned legally are semi automatic handguns, and the AR-15, They are only legal when you have a valid firearms license. The AR-15 additionally must remain only on an owned property and may not be shown in public. Handguns can legally be taken in public as long as they are conceal carried or in a holster.

Updated with new farming regulation laws.
REMINDER: You must farm directly on property you own or that you have express and provable permission from the current landowner for it to be considered legal. The land must be directly a part of the property such as the backyard of a suburban house. A piece of land across from an owned property such as across a road or sidewalk does not classify as part of the property and is not legal.

The punishment guidelines have also been increased due to an increase in farming based gang violence and homicides.

Updated to V1.61
  • Change in terminology regarding narcotics and other illicit substances to match the ones regarding firearms to keep them constant, as well as allowing law enforcement more control over situations that could possibly constitute as suspicious and anti-social activity or narcotics distribution.

Update:
Small fixes to make a few laws easier to understand or more relevant to our gamemode.

Update for 10/16/2019
In order to prepare for the new prison system, ticket system, as well as the increased jailtime the max sentences of many of our laws has been increased or tweaked. The only ones that have really been touched are under the criminal law act, the rest or more or less untouched.
