...Criminal Law Violations Crimes in the United s are broadly ified in two ways: felony and misdemeanor. One is serious while the other is somewhat mild. Treason and espionage can be categorized as a felony especially in times of war. Offenses and other petty crimes are sub-classifications of misdemeanor. This paper discusses the five categories of criminal law violations prominent in the United States. Carlan, Nored, and Downey (2011) define the legal concept of felony as a crime in which the “authorized punishment is 1 year or more in a federal or state prison, or a fine” (p. 9). As it seems, Carlan et al. essentially categorize two key elements... by a person. But inchoate offense is far from...

...Criminal Law Criminal Law Capital punishment was meant for cases that involved the death of a victim. So, it is not appropriate for courts to issue the death penalty on other offenses other than murder. It is considered excessive and unconstitutional for an individual to receive the death sentence if the victim does not die, and this is under the Fourteenth and Eighth Amendment (Melusky & Pesto, 2011). In a case involving Patrick Kennedy of Louisiana, the accused was charged with molesting his step-daughter, and was given the death penalty. However, the Supreme Court overruled this decision by claiming that the decision was disproportionate with the crime committed. The Supreme Court deems... Law...

For example, speeding is usually considered a misdemeanor while running over someone with a vehicle on purpose is considered a felony. Felonies are associated with prison sentences of at least one year, fines or even both while misdemeanors involve less than a year prison sentence, smaller fines or even both (Gardner, et al.15). I would make the crime a misdemeanor because is not a very serious crime and can be served with alternative sentencing like community service. b) Mens rea is defined as crime that consists both...

Gross negligence arises where a person had a duty of care to another person but he omits to carry out that duty. For cases of gross negligence manslaughter, in situations where a person had created or made a contribution to the creation of a state of affairs which he knew, or should have known had become life-threatening to another person, a consequent duty would normally arise on him to act by taking reasonable steps to save the other’s life. Such a duty of care arises as a result of the law. The question whether the facts o...

The mental element necessary for a particular crime or the blameworthy state of mind that accompanies the act or conduct is called mens rea. These two ingredients form the basic element of the crime. Thus, mens rea by itself is not enough; the actus rea also has to be established. Causation is one of the actus reus crimes. This is where a conduct by one or by the defendant is the substantial cause of the consequence or the result. Parties to offences also crop up in this question.

Murder occurs when a person who commits the crime is of sound mind, alive and has an intent to kill. Manslaughter can occur with intent but only where partial defense can apply, like loss of control. A death that results from a grossly negligent conduct is also considered a manslaughter as well as a death that results from an illegal act involving harming another person (not necessarily killing a person). There can be two types of manslaughter, voluntary and involuntary. Voluntary manslaughter occurs when a person kills with a malice aforethought... ...
