2 Chapter 3 What Criminal Is a Crime? Law Section 3.1 Section 3.2 Particular Crimes
3 Why It s Important Learning the essence of criminal law, the types of crimes that can be committed, and the nature of criminal defense will help you understand our criminal justice system.
4 Classifications of Crimes Crime is considered an act against the public good The defendant is the person accused of a crime. The prosecutor is the government attorney who presents the case in court against the defendant.
5 Classifications of Crimes The plaintiff is the party that accuses a person of a crime. In criminal proceedings, the state or federal government, representing the public at large, is the plaintiff.
6 Felonies A felony is a major crime punishable by imprisonment or death. These include: murder manslaughter burglary robbery arson
7 Misdemeanors A less serious crime with less severe penalty is a misdemeanor. These include: driving without a license lying about one s age to purchase alcohol leaving the scene of an automobile accident
8 Crimes and Crime Rates
9 in the American System The American legal system consists of two systems: the state system the federal system
10 State Each state has inherent police power allowing it to make statutes to protect public: health safety welfare morals The exact definition and penalties for crimes may differ from state to state. Assault vs Battery
11 Federal The federal government has no police power. It can create criminal statutes only in areas over which it has jurisdiction, such as counterfeiting because it has the power to coin money.
12 Federal Because of the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution, the federal government has the power to regulate commerce among the states. As a result, federal criminal law must involve some sort of interstate activity.
13 Federal Today, the federal government does have a criminal code and several police agencies, including: the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA)
14 Federal Treason - betrayal of one's country Named and defined in the U.S. Constitution Double Jeopardy 5 th amendment; no person can be tried twice for the same crime. However..
15 Elements of a Crime A crime is defined by two elements: the criminal act the required state of mind
16 Criminal Act Most criminal statutes specifically explain conduct that is forbidden. A criminal act must also involve voluntary conduct.
17 Required State of Mind The definition of a crime can be changed based on the criminal s state of mind. Murder is the intentional taking of a person s life. Involuntary manslaughter outlaws the accidental taking of a person s life.
18 Motive Motive plays NO part in proving criminal liability.
19 Pre-Learning Question What do you think are defenses to a crime?
20 Defenses to Crimes Defense attorneys try to show that the prosecution failed to prove the required elements for the crime charged to their client.
21 Defenses to Crimes Common defenses are: insanity entrapment self-defense defense of family members
22 Insanity American law recognizes that people cannot be held responsible for their actions if they do not know what they are doing.
23 Insanity About two-fifths of the U.S. use the M Naghten Rule and the other threefifths use the American Law Institute (ALI) test to determine insanity. What about Utah?
24 Entrapment If a law enforcement officer induces a law-abiding citizen to commit a crime, the person can use a defense known as entrapment.
25 Self-Defense When people have good reason to believe they are in danger of serious injury or death, they can use force to protect themselves. This is defense is known as selfdefense.
26 Defense of Family Members Using force to rescue a family member from attack is another defense. As with self-defense, the rescuer must have good reason to believe the victim was in danger of severe bodily harm or death.
27 What part does motive play in proving criminal liability?
28 ANSWER None. End of Section 3.1
