The Ark has, though, very strict rules, dictated by the small environment and the possibility to host a limited number of people. Between the others there is the rule that limits the number of sons for family to just one. Who commits a crime and he is judged guilty is expelled from the Ark, which means sentenced to death. If though who commits a crime is still underage he is imprisoned until the adulthood, when he will have a second chance in another process to be considered innocent, otherwise he will follow the fate of the other adult criminals.
