"Respect Not Earned" is a case appearing in the Criminal Case series, Justice Department. It is the third case of Memorial Bay and the fifteenth case in the overall series.


After the conclusion of the previous case, Jessica Frazier warned the police not to look into her great-grandfather's history as there was nothing hidden there. Suspicious over the stolen gold found by the late Adela Wingate, the police ignored Jessica's warnings and proceeded to investigate.

The police decided to head over to the Memorial Plaza to interrogate Donald Sellers regarding Virgil Frazier's secret past. But when they arrived, there was a state of panic when they found young woman Charlene Addison dead with a bullet wound on her forehead.

After the autopsy was finished, Dr. Graham Fraser came up with a shocking conclusion — the bullet did not kill Charlene, she was already dead when she was shot. It was revealed that she was killed with a lethal dose of arsenic. Through the type of arsenic, Dr. Fraser also added that the killer used ant-killers.

In the conclusion of the investigation, antique shop owner Ben Watanabe was revealed as Charlene's killer. After half-heartedly denying his involvement, Ben admitted that she killed Charlene by accident. Ben intended to kill Donald Sellers as he was planning to manipulate the truth behind Virgil Frazier. Charlene came by the plaza's eatery, where she ate a donut laced with arsenic from Donald's box. In the end, Judge Chandler sentenced Ben to 20 years imprisonment.
