Criminal law involves regulations and statutes related to offenses against the state or public and provides punishment for those violations. Its primary purpose is to maintain social order by preventing harmful behavior, like violence, fraud, or theft, through the imposition of penalties. Criminal law categorizes offenses in various ways, commonly as infractions, misdemeanors, or felonies, with punishments varying significantly from fines to imprisonment.

The state, represented by prosecutors, is responsible for initiating legal action against the accused. To be convicted, guilt must generally be established “beyond a reasonable doubt,” assuring that the legal system is cautious and thorough in imposing serious penalties. Determining the trial rate in criminal cases involves complex factors like evidence strength, plea negotiations, and legal strategies. This branch of law serves to protect citizens and maintain societal norms.
