Criminal Law

Criminal law is the body of law relating to crimes that threaten, harm or somehow endanger the health, safety and welfare of people. Unlike civil law, breaking criminal laws results in punishments including incarceration in prison or jail. Convicts may be required to conform to guidelines imposed as part of a parole or probation period, and they may be fined or have money or property taken from them as restitution for breaking a criminal law.
