Criminal Cases

Criminal Cases

The Government has several goals when taking criminal cases: making sure people respect the law and discouraging criminal behavior.

  • A criminal case starts when the local police file a crime report and the court.
  • A person can be sued in a civil case and a criminal case for the same Act.
  • In a criminal case, when a crime takes place, the lawyer for the prosecution decides whether there is enough evidence to accuse someone of the crime.
  • The Public Prosecutor must convince the Judge that the accused is guilty “beyond a reasonable doubt”.
  • If the Public Prosecutor does not present enough evidence or if the accused raises a reasonable doubt, the accused must be found not guilty.
