Hence, the enforcement of a criminal law on victimless crimes is proportional to the social standard of the person committing the act. • Criminalising these acts does not deter the people from committing it as the arrests made are arbitrary or capricious in nature. A law that does not create deterrence in the minds of people is not effective in nature.
