The document “Crime and Punishment in the Elizabethan Era” also points out that the law was flexible and could be applied differently based on the situation.

Some were inhumanely tortured for more information to see if they were working with others, despite the obvious lack of morality in doing this, it worked. However, on the other hand, the Elizabethan Law did have at least some moral sense to it as people some were spared from torture, and even execution in certain circumstances.
