Case study of Criminal law

Criminal laws relate to the rules and regulations for handling criminal acts like social conducts, harming, threatening, or endangering one’s health, safety, moral and/or people’s welfare. Unlike civil laws which emphasize the dispute resolution and compensation of the victim, criminal laws punish the law breakers (Duff, 2010). Criminal law is unique and distinctive for handling crimes with potentially grave penalties and/or sanctions. Overall, there are five objectives of imposing grave criminal penalties or punishment for the violation of criminal laws.
