Lisa Simpson – Endangerment

Although Lisa is the family’s moral compass, it has not stopped her from committing crimes herself. Her brother takes the cake with the most petty crimes, but Lisa has committed her own crime. In the episode Dude, where’s my ranch? which is one of the best episodes from the recent Simpsons‘seasons falls Lisa pladask for a boy working on a cattle farm.

Marge Simpson – Negligence of children

Marge Simpson is the family workhorse. She prepares the meals, takes care of the children and generally takes care of the house. Throughout the show’s long period, Marge has experienced various periods of exhaustion when it comes to her duties, and sometimes it has gone wrong because of it.

Her criminal past is a hidden detail that fans often miss about Marge The Simpsons and in the episode, Orange is the new yellow, she commits a serious crime. She allows Bart to go to the park unsupervised, and this leads to her being arrested for child neglect. She enjoys her time in prison because she does not have to do any of the chores she usually does for her family. Unfortunately, without Marge nearby, the family quickly falls apart as Homer is unable to take care of the basic duties of the house. It seems that most of Marge’s criminal past was due to honest mistakes, such as her unintentional shoplifting from Kwik-E-Mart.

Bart Simpson – Betrayal

Although the mischievous son of Marge and Homer has committed many petty crimes over the years, it is his betrayal that is the most serious of all. While other crimes, such as embezzlement of public property and vandalism, would give him a fine or a day or two in prison, treason is a federal crime that can result in life imprisonment and even death.

In the season 22 episode “Homer the Father”, Bart decides to sell the secrets behind the Springfield power plant to a foreign nation in exchange for a mini bike. Although he has a change of heart and is able to retrieve the information before it is used in a bad way, Bart would undoubtedly be put away for a long time in the real world.

Homer Simpson-DUI

It’s no secret that the patriarch of the Simpsons family loves his Duff beer – maybe a little too much, actually. Although Homer is a serial drunk driver, he has only been arrested for the act on one occasion. In the episode “Duffless”, Homer is arrested in a stabbing after leaving Duff Brewery. Ironically, he tried to do the right thing by getting the much more intoxicated Barney to hand over the keys. Despite that, he still dumps the test and gets his driver’s license revoked.

Although losing his driver’s license is a big blow to Homer, he learns to live a better life without booze after Marge has asked him to quit for a month. Unfortunately for the donut lover, Homer did not stick to the plan and drank again at the next episode. Although Homer has committed a number of other crimes over the years, it is his serial drunk driving that is the most dangerous of all.
