Criminal Law

What exactly is criminal law?  To understand what Criminal Law is, it is important to understand the classification of crimes. Crimes can be classified as either felony or misdemeanor.  As you can imagine, there are big differences between felony and misdemeanor crimes.


Basically, the difference between felonies and misdemeanors is the penalty and the amount of jail time you can serve if convicted.

A misdemeanor is defined as an offense where if convicted, the punishment does not include detention in State Prison or the death penalty.  So obviously a felony can result in State Prison incarceration or death.  One other thing to consider in this discussion, are the degrees of the crime, whether misdemeanor or felony.  The degrees on a felony or misdemeanor refer to the seriousness of a crime based upon standards set by the State, County or local jurisdiction.


An example might be robbery, 1st, 2nd or 3rd degree felony depending on bodily injuries sustained during the crime by the victim, the value of the property stolen during the crime or the weapon used during the commission of the crime.
