There are few basic things you should know about criminal law. Criminal law is the body of law that helps regulate social conduct and addresses the fit punishment for threatening and harmful behavior. That is behavior which endangers the health, safety and moral welfare of human beings. The two most important elements of this body of law involve the actus reus – or the prohibited act, and mens rea or guilty mind, also referred to as the intent to do a prohibited act. It is important to note that proof of both is required for the prosecution to secure a conviction. There are some crimes, such as modern regulatory offences, that require no more than a prohibited act and they are known as strict liability offences. Criminal offences may proceed summarily, by indictment or either / or, in the case of hybrid offences. The potential consequences for an accused and the mode of trial depend upon the designation type of the offence. This is why the advice of an experienced criminal law lawyer is critical for anyone facing criminal charges. It is also important to note that there is no capital punishment in Canada.
