Criminal Law is the area of law that governs an individual’s relationship to the state and federal government. It includes various laws that define specific conduct that is prohibited by the state and federal government in order to protect the welfare and safety of the public. Some examples of criminal offenses are arson, conspiracy, robbery, burglary, operating a vehicle while under the influence, assault, battery, domestic abuse, and homicide.
The field of criminal law also includes protection of the right to Due Process for the accused, including arrest, arraignment, grand juries, plea-bargaining, discovery, pretrial hearings, jury selection, jury trials, bench trials, evidence, and motions. In order to prove any crime, the government must prove that the accused committed every element of the guilty act beyond a reasonable doubt – the highest standard of proof in our legal system.
