Criminal law involves prosecution by the government for an act deemed by local, state, or federal law to be a crime. More serious crimes, such as homicides, rapes, and assaults, are considered felonies and are punishable by more than one year. Less serious crimes, including petty theft, are misdemeanors. A finding of guilt by a judge or jury can result in prison or jail time and/or fines.
