Different from civil law, which deals with the relationships between individuals, criminal law is the body of law that governs the relationship between and individual and the State and metes out punishment for criminal offenses.
The United States Congress, state legislatures, cities and local municipalities establish penal codes with provisions to prosecute individuals and businesses charged with committing alleged acts against the public.
Federal or State government authorities, State police or local law enforcement officers may arrest individuals who allegedly violate penal codes, and a county, state or federal prosecutor may file criminal charges for violations of criminal laws.
When you face serious criminal allegations, it is crucial that you contact an attorney as soon as possible. In fact, the minute the police ask to question you, you have the right to remain silent until you consult with an attorney. Your best bet is to hire an attorney who has experience with criminal law.
