Criminal Law

     Criminal law involves prosecution by the government of a person for an act that has been specified as a crime. Civil cases, on the other hand, involve individuals and organizations seeking to resolve legal issues, within the court proceedings. In a criminal case, the State of Texas, through a prosecutor, initiates the case, while in a civil case the victim brings the case. Persons convicted of a crime may be incarcerated or put on probation, and fined. However, persons found liable in a civil case may only have a judgment rendered against them, but they are not incarcerated. In other words we don't have debtor's prisons.
   A "crime" is any act or omission (of an act) in violation of a Texas or U.S. law which forbids such conduct. Though there are some common law crimes, most crimes in the United States are established by local, state, and federal governments. Criminal laws vary significantly from state to state. There is, however, in Texas, the Texas Penal Code which provides a good starting point to gain an understanding of the basis of criminal liability.
