I found this word in my book I'm reading....In Good Faith by Scott Pratt....since this is a book with a lawyer as the main character, I thought I would also add the legal definition.


She had a habit of committing crimes of moral Turpitude...
vile, shameful or base character's depravity....

Legal meaning...
an act or behavior that gravely violates the sentiment or accepted standard of the community



  1. Sounds like a good read and that bunny rabbit is adorable.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ♥

  2. I think I've heard turpitude before - maybe in a legal drama? - but I didn't know the meaning. Thanks for playing along today!

  3. I hope you enjoy your book! I think we should spay or neuter all lawyers so they don't reproduce in the wild. Have a fabulous Wednesday!

  4. A bunny rabbit for a blog hop? They are not my friends, when it comes to my husband's garden! I've heard of turpitude before - something I hope never to be guilty of.

  5. The only cause for firing a tenured professor is "gross moral turpitude." Those in academia are very familiar with the term. Such a firing has almost never happened.

    be well... mae at

  6. Hi Sherrie,

    Thank you for stopping by Fiction Books today, it is great to 'meet' you! I love receiving visits and comments and always appreciate them.

    I have heard of your word before and know roughly what it means, so might be able to explain it to someone else, although definitely not as succinctly as your featured definition!

    This series looks really good and I see from Goodreads that you enjoyed the first book, so I hope that book #2 is as good for you!

    I am definitely adding it to my list :)

    Stay Safe

    Yvonne xx
