Jurgis goes to jail and the first person he meets is Jack Duane. Jack tells him to find him once he gets out of prison and Jurgis does that after his ten days behind bars. Jack tells Jurgis that he wants to make him a part of his crime operation ,and Jurgis is grateful for the chance.

Jurgis and Duane’s first crime is to rob a man on the street. They beat him up and take his money and possessions. Jurgis’s share of the take is fifty-five dollars. Jurgis' new occupation becomes a life of petty crime.
