Criminal law attorneys represent people who are being prosecuted by the state or federal government for an act that has been classified as a crime. Crimes are classified as ‘misdemeanors’ (less serious offenses that are normally punishable by a fine like some traffic violations, petty theft, or possession of a small amount of marijuana up to one year in county jail) and ‘felonies’ (more serious offenses that warrant imprisonment of one or more years, such as rape, grand theft, assault and battery, assault with a deadly weapon, or homicide/murder).

In criminal law, the case is initiated by the state or federal government through a prosecutor rather than being initiated by the victim, as it is in civil law. Plaintiffs in a civil law suit only need to show by a preponderance of the evidence that a defendant is 51% or more liable (responsible) for the damages. But, the prosecutor in a criminal law case has to prove to the judge or jury ‘beyond a reasonable doubt’ that the defendant is guilty of the crime charged.
