    Re: Third-degree?

    --A third degree crime is less serious than murder, burglary, or other felonies.

    -- Third degree is also used in medical terms: for eg: third degree burn means the highest level of burn.

    -- In police terms, third degree torture means an intensive questioning or rough treatment in order to get a confession.
