Criminal Law

criminal law

 

Criminal Law is the name given to the area of law that governs an individual’s relationship to the state and federal government. It includes various rules that define conduct which is prohibited by the state and federal government because it is held to threaten the welfare of the public. Some examples of criminal offenses are bribery, conspiracy, money laundering, DUI, and insurance fraud.  The term “criminal law” also encompasses the rights of an accused and the criminal process, including arrest, arraignment, grand juries, pleas, discovery, pretrial hearings, trials, jury selection, evidence, motions, and posttrial remedies. In order to prove any crime, no matter how serious, the prosecutor must prove that the accused committed a guilty act with a guilty mind beyond a reasonable doubt.
