One off fee to confess and clear your record. Go on tape confessing for the particular infringement, Come clean and cough up, Court free, record free. Great TV

       Oh, of course. I got one idea in my head and went with it. My apologies. I guess some examples would have helped. What sort of misdemeanours are we talking about? Obviously it has to be something that you are not suspected for at the time you confess, yet there is still a possibilty that you will be found out. Taxes I can see, since you are on record for everything and that type of stuff is always being investigated. But simple crimes like drunk driving or speeding...it seems that once you make it home you are not going to get caught for it. Burglery? I think most burglers will take there chances on getting caught rather than pay more money to come clean.   

       Is the intention to get people to come out of the woodwork and "give it up"? or is this a way to get suspects to confess before a trial. (I think they already do that sort of thing when they plea-bargain).
