What is the difference between a criminal wrong and a civil wrong?
The differences between whether a law or statute will be a 'wrong' prosecuted under civil or criminal law, is made by the legislature at the time the bill is introduced for consideration and by the time it is passed into law.

Fingerprint records are maintained in civil and criminal repositories in America. Civil fingerprint identification, such as occurs with police or soldiers entering into public… service, is the recording of a person's fingerprints primarily for the purposes of:Determining the person has no prior criminal arrest record.Verifying the person's identity at a later date. Criminal fingerprint identification is the recording of an arrested person's fingerprints primarily for the purposes of:Recording the arrest and/or conviction information in a permanent file associated with that person.Determining the person's true identity if they have used other names for previous arrests.Determining the person's prior arrest/conviction record.
in both civil and criminal jails, a person is incarcerated or locked up in a prison or jail. The difference is in the reason for the incarceration. A person in a criminal ja…il is sent there by a judge after the government has successfully prosecuted them for breaking the law. In a civil jail, a person is sent there by a judge after being sued by another person, usually for inability to pay a debt. In this case the lender or the accuser pays the government for each day the debtor or accused is in jail. The United Nations (UN) is against civil jails. Another VIew: (in the US) There is no such thing as "civil jail." Civil/Tort cases are not punished by jail terms but by monetary fines and/or other sanctions against the defendant/respondant in the case.
Answers from various contributors: Criminal law refers to those actions that have been declared illegal. They are prosecuted by the state (city, state or country). The defend…ant is found guilty beyond reasonable doubt or found not guilty. Criminal laws are malum per se, meaning that it is against the moral principles of society. They are normally punished with fines and/or loss of freedom through jail or probation.Civil laws are malum prohibitum, meaning that they are against the law because someone has said so. These are things like speeding and parking violations. They do not result in loss of freedom, though they can result in loss of privilages or fines. Civil Law deals with disagreements between citizens were no crime has been committed, or a separate cause of action even when a crime has been committed. The defendant is found liable by a preponderance of the evidenct, meaning they jury believes that it is likely that the defendant did what they are accused of by more than 50% of the evidence, or they are found not liable. A famous example is that OJ was tried twice, once on a criminal action for murder where he was acquitted, and once for a wrongful death suit, which he was found liable for. More Information: Civil law pertains to non criminal charges such as a person owes someone a debt and hasn't paid, a landlord taking a tenant to court to get any rent due, etc. Criminal law deals with criminal activities such as D.W.I.s, robberies, assaults, etc. With criminal laws you have to prove beyond reasonable doubt and with civil you have to prove preponderance of evidence. Criminal laws are laws that seek to prevent people from deliberately or recklessly harming each other or each other's property. Civil laws seek to prevent disputes between individuals, organizations, or governments, in which no criminal laws have been broken. In criminal law the standard of proof is that guilt must be shown beyond all reasonable doubt. While in civil law the burden of proof is that liability must be shown on the balance of probabilities. The burden of proof (the side which must prove their case) lies with whichever party is bringing the case (in civil cases it is the plaintiff, in criminal trials it is the prosecution). Also, in civil trials, the individual being charged is called the defendant, while in criminal trials they are referred to as the accused. Criminal law involves wrongs against society. Civil law involves wrongs against individuals.
criminal is someone who is or has been in jail a civil is a person that is part of the town or city
In criminal cases, you can go to jail if convicted of some kind of crime. In civil cases, you will have a pay a person money.
It refers to the unethical practice of law outisde the accepted canons of legal ethics. There is no difference between the two when referring to malpractice Another answer: Ma…lpractice refers to the negligent practice of law where ther is an attorney-client relationship that creates a duty of care on the part of the attorney to the client; a breach of that duty, which breach is the proximate cause of damages suffered by the client. The standard of care a lawyer must provide is generally stated as a being that degree of reasonable knowledge and skill that lawyers of ordinary ability and skill possess and exercise. Legal malpractice is not the same as unethical conduct although unethical conduct which causes damages to a client could be the basis of a lawsuit by the client against the lawyer to recover those damages.
I have always understood that a Criminal action is where the Police are the prosecuting authority,against a person,or persons who have been charged with a criminal offence. A …Civil action is where a lawyer,or QC initiates a legal action on behalf of a client or company,not facing criminal charges. Criminal action is for crimes against society. These are usually clearly outlined in statutes and law. A good example would be a ticket for speeding. It is a violation of law. Civil action is for harm caused to a person. This could be hurting them physically, mentally, hurting their property, etc. If you tell a person that a teacher was having a relationship with a student. If the teacher gets fired because of the lie, they could bring a civil action against you for causing them to get fired.
Criminal liability means the potential loss of freedom for breaking a law of the state prohibiting certain conduct. Civil lliability is generally an order for money dama…ges to be paid to a private individual for a private wrong. For further information see the related links below.
false can not be proven true wrong is not right
A civil court is designed and mandated to deal with cases that revolve around people and themselves and/or companies etc..it solves and passes judgment on cases dealing with p…rivate matters that don't necessarily offer a threat to national security, while the CRIMINAL COURT listens and rules over charges that have been committed against the country's penole code.
A tort is a civil wrong doing as opposed to a criminal wrong doing. Example: Stealing a car is a criminal wrong doing and slander could be considered a Tort or civil w…rong doing.
its what i do, by giving wrong answers. Its like if your at a party, and the police come to tell you to turn the music down, and you don't, you can go to a civil court and get… charged but apart from that i don't know P.S i got told in a yr 10 class.
In Criminal Law
On how the statute is written and what the specified penalty is.
Criminal trial is a court trial for criminal procedures like murder etc. but civil trial includes the trials and courth questioning of disputes like that of a property
It is a start... The line between right and wrong starts with submission and pride. It ends with respecting the rights of others & willful disobedience to authori…ty. Any thing else will support these points in the middle.
Civil is like a lawsuit. It is from one person accussing another person. Criminal is when a crime is committed and the polce accusse someone, and they are charged. It is a law…suit and the results can be fine, prsion terms, death, coimmunity service, or various other options.
Basically, human beings can't but God can, and He has told us how in His instruction book, the Bible. We cannot rely on our conscience to be able to tell ourself the diffe…rence between right and wrong because that is variable, unreliable, and often wrong. For example, captured Russian spies could pass lie-detector tests because in their culture it was normal to lie. Interestingly, Russia's 'moles' ,who were Americans and raised and working in the USA but secretly working for the Russians, also passed polygraph tests, so culture could not be used to tell between right and wrong. Other factors are often used to excuse or condone wrong-doing, but at best they alone can only partially-differentiate between what is right and what is wrong. You cannot rely on environmental factors: different people can believe different things depending how they were brought up , but over which they have either no or little control - their own culture, history of their country, society itself, social upbringing, and peer-pressure. You cannot rely on using your family-upbringing in the past as a reason for your own wrong-doing in the present. For example, you can't say that you are not guilty of child abuse because you yourself were also beaten as a child by a drunken father. Likewise, you cannot rely on education - if a person wants to do the wrong thing, or does not like to be told that he is wrong and that he has a personal responsibility for how he behaves, then he will continue to do so regardless. For example, people still smoke regardless of knowing the results despite all the educational and anti-smoking programmes in the world: and some of those are doctors! More education does not mean less crime: it sometimes actually results in more. For example, look at the number of highly-educated confidence-men who swindle astute business-men and shareholders out of millions of dollars but who cannot be charged with anything because they have exploited legal loop-holes and operate just within the law. Just because there is no law against something does not make it right. (This is especially so when he thinks no-one can see him and no-one will know.) You cannot rely on social class distinctions, with one social class always being better and more law-abiding than another (lower one). There is no such thing as a 'criminal class' per se: sometimes the only reason people are convicted is because they can't afford good legal defense, while those who can afford it often walk away scot-free, or with a token penalty and no conviction recorded against their name. For example: criminals can come from the most highly-educated, intelligent, talented, richest, law-abiding, and highly-respected families which are pillars of society, while in contrast some of the most-honest and trustworthy people you can meet can be poor illiterate menial workers at the bottom of society with no prospects whatsoever. You must not rely at all on 'situation ethics' , where what is right one day is wrong the next, because this is both variable and useless if you are looking for permanent black-and-white s. All countries and races have certain common laws, telling their people the difference between right and wrong which they already unconsciously know; for example against murder, theft, and adultery. They may sometimes be honoured more in the breach than in the observance and be selectively-enforced, but the laws are still there. Because these laws cross all boundaries and apply to all mankind in the same way, this means that man alone could not have originated them: they had to have been put into mankind by someone or something greater than man. This was when God created Adam and Eve. These laws have been codified as the Ten Commandments, with the last six telling us how to love fellow man. Put simply, they are:- Respect your father and your mother... Do not murder. Be faithful in marriage. Do not steal. Do not tell lies about others. Do not want anything that belongs to someone else.... (Exo 20:12-17)[Good News] The NET Bible (which is not copyrighted) translates these same verses as below (plus notes):- Exo 20:12 "Honor your father and your mother... Exo 20:13 "You shall not murder. Exo 20:14 "You shall not commit adultery. Exo 20:15 "You shall not steal. Exo 20:16 "You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor. Exo 20:17 "You shall not covet your neighbor's house. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that belongs to your neighbor."[NET Bible] "Note on verse 14: Adultery is a sin against the marriage of a fellow citizen - it destroys the home. The Law distinguished between adultery (which had a death penalty) and sexual contact with a young woman (which carried a monetary fine and usually marriage if the father was willing). So it distinguished between fornication and adultery. Both were sins, but the significance of each was different. In the ancient world this sin is often referred to as "the great sin.""Note on verse 16: The expression 'false testimony' means "a lying witness" , or "you will not as a lying witness." The prohibition is against perjury. While the precise reference would be to legal proceedings, the law had a broader application to lying about other people in general (see Lev 5:1; Hos 4:2). "Note on verse 17: The word 'covet' focuses not on an external act but on an internal mental activity behind the act, the motivation for it. The word can be used in a very good sense (Ps 19:10; 68:16), but it has a bad connotation in contexts where the object desired is off limits. This command is aimed at curtailing the greedy desire for something belonging to a neighbor, a desire that leads to the taking of it or the attempt to take it. " There are a myriad of other laws and regulations in the Bible, but Jesus cut right through them and summarized the last six Commandments of Exodus in just one line: "You shall love your neighbor as yourself." (To see it in its context, the full section is :- Mat 22:35 And one of them, a lawyer, questioned Him, testing Him, and saying, Mat 22:36 Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law? [ie The 10 Commandments] Mat 22:37 And Jesus said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind." Mat 22:38 This is the first and great commandment. Mat 22:39 And the second is like it: "You shall love your neighbor as yourself." Mat 22:40 On these two commandments all the Law and the Prophets hang. By himself, man cannot tell the difference between right and wrong: every time something different appears, either a new law has to be made or an old one amended. One of the reasons laws have to be continually updated is that by the time a law has been created to fix one problem another loophole either appears, or it is manipulated and massaged to make it as good as useless. Leglislators, politicians, and legal draftsmen cannot read peoples' minds. However, with God's help that problem has been overcome. Jesus did not look at laws as external and requiring enforcement, but instead as internal and self-policed. With the mind controlling ( to a greater or lesser degree) that person's thoughts, it means that because all external actions originate in the mind that a persons' intent can be controlled. If everybody went around treating others the same way they themselves would like to be treated, then there would be no gray areas. (It's a bit like censorship: no censorship is as effective as self-censorship.) For this to be done it requires people to want to change, to be converted, and to allow Christ into their lives to be able to change their minds and thus their actions: but with Jesus Christ the humanly- impossible becomes possible.
