This is a question which seeks an answer from a moral or ethical perspective.
A person attempts to commit a terrible crime but fails in his or her mission. The individual, however, is apprehended, charged and while accepting graveness of the criminality, is punished with a jail sentence. After completing the required period of the jail term with proper behavior certification, the person moves back to society and starts his or her life afresh as a good citizen.
Does society have the moral conviction to treat the person as an outcast for the rest of his or her life?
