Criminal Law: An Overview
Criminal law is made up of the criminal laws themselves and
the law of criminal procedure. The criminal law for the
federal government and for every state sets out the legal
rules of criminal conduct and the rules concerning how it is
punished. The criminal law also contains specific rules of
legal procedure which vary state to states - these laws are
designed to allow the police and prosecutors to arrest and
convict as many people as possible while drawing out lines
of constitutional protection for the accused.
Criminal law deals primarily with crimes committed against
the state, i.e. with social crimes. Examples include murder,
theft, larceny, arson, embezzlement, and rape. These crimes
are prosecuted by either a state or federal officials, such
as prosecutors or attorneys general. Criminal statutes
determine which courts will hear what cases and who will
prosecute those cases. In most cases, an act is a crime
because the person committing it intended to do something
wrong. This mental state is generally referred to as
Mens rea, or guilty mind. Mens rea expresses a
belief that people should be punished only when they have
acted in a way that makes them morally blameworthy.
Criminal Procedure, on the other hand, deals with the
methods used to deal with people accused of committing a
crime, when they can be searched, when evidence can be
seized, when eyewitnesses can be investigated. Criminal
procedure is where search and seizure and arrest laws come
into play - and is most likely what people associate with
criminal lawyers on television. Criminal Procedure deals
with a defendant's individual, constitution rights, which
include the right to remain silent, the right to a speedy,
public trial by a jury, the right to a competent attorney,
and the defendant's right to confront his or her accuser.
