Default Re: Crime and Punishment for AIs

This becomes even more complicated in jurisdictions where ghosts are legal persons, like the USA, as they cannot just erase a detained ghost unless they know that it is not the original. Even if they could capture the original, the original would affirm their constitutional rights, including their right to counsel, and any good defense attorney would likely shred any case brought against them when the 'real' perpetrator (a copy) continues to commit crimes while the original is in custody.
