I COULDN’T RESIST SHARING HOW ARTFUL, EXPLICIT, AND DIRECT THE LAW IS…. ACTUALLY TORTURE YOU ALSO LOL
A penal statute cannot be extended by implication or construction to cases within the mischief, if they are not at the same time within the terms of the act, fairly and reasonably interpreted.’ Bishop on Statutory *205 Crimes, § 190e; Huffman’s Case [Huffman v. State], 29 Ala. 40; Young’s Case [Young v. State], 58 Ala. 358. In the case last cited this court said: `One who commits an act which does not come within the words of a penal statute, according to the general and popular understanding of them, when they are not used technically, is not to be punished thereby merely because the act contravenes the policy of the statute.’ Again, such statutes are to reach no further in meaning than their words. People [ex rel. Johnson] v. Peacock, 98 Ill. 172. `No person is to be made subject to them by implication, and all doubts concerning their interpretation are to predominate in favor of the accused. Only those transactions are covered by them which are within both their spirit and their letter, reasonably interpreted.’ Bishop on Statutory Crimes, § 194; Cearfoss’ Case [Cearfoss v. State], 42 Md. 403.” Scott v. State, 152 Ala. 63, 64, 44 So. 544.
