Criminal law refers to local, state, and federal statutes that define criminal offenses and specify the corresponding fines and punishment. Criminal statutes define public offenses or wrongs committed against the state or the people.
Criminal punishment, depending on the offense and jurisdiction, may include the loss of liberty, government supervision (parole or probation), community service, fines, and other penalties. There are some archetypal crimes, such as murder, but the acts that are forbidden are not wholly consistent between different criminal codes, and even within a particular code lines may be blurred as civil infractions may give rise also to criminal consequences. Criminal law typically is enforced by the government, unlike the civil law, which may be enforced by private parties.
