In Criminal Law, there are two different types of
cases: civil and criminal. Civil cases are disputes between people regarding the legal
duties and responsibilities they owe each other. Whereas, criminal cases are ones
where prosecutors bring about charges for the violation of criminal statutes.
The most common types of criminal cases are felonies and misdemeanors. A felony involves serious misconduct that is punishable by imprisonment for more than one year or even death. Felonies are typically divided into different classes with varying degrees of punishment. A crime that does not amount to a felony is called a misdemeanor. A misdemeanor is misconduct for which the law prescribes punishment of no more than one year in prison.
