Usage examples for misconduct

  1. I mean that it shall be so- or that you shall be punished for your misconduct to him and to me." – The Claverings by Anthony Trollope
  2. As long as the misconduct of persons in power in Bengal was encouraged by nothing but the hopes of concealment, it may be presumed that they felt some restraint upon their actions, and that they stood in some awe of the power placed over them; whereas it is to be apprehended that the late conduct of the Court of Directors tells them, in effect, that they have nothing to fear from the certainty of a discovery. – The Works of the Right Honourable Edmund Burke, Vol. VIII. (of 12) by Edmund Burke
