A crime which works infamy in the person who commits it. 189 S.E. 441. At common law, any infamous crime was one that rendered the person convicted thereof incompetent as a wi…tness. 4 N.Y. Cr. R. 545, 546. This was based on the theory of untrustworthiness whereby a testimonial disqualification was imposed to prevent the introduction of evidence thought not entitled to credence. In this sense, infamous crimes comprehended treason, felonies and any crime involving the element of deceit 23 F. 136, 137 and examined the nature of the crime rather than the nature of the punishment inflicted.

V of the Constitution must be prosecuted by indictment, is any crime that is punishable by death or imprisonment in a state penal institution, with or without hard labor for more than one year. See 604 F. 2d 569, 572. Under this view, it is determined by the nature of the punishment, which a court is authorized to impose, and not by the character of the crime. The common law procedure of excluding witnesses because of prior infamous convictions is no longer followed, although such convictions may affect the credibility of the witness. See 182 A. 2d 15, 16.

In its purest form crime prevention looks at people (usually babies, children and young teens) who are not involved in criminal activity and asks, "What can we do to make sure… they never come into conflict with the law?" Crime prevention also looks at places and situations which are not yet troubled by much criminal activity and asks, "How can we make sure crime never becomes a significant problem here?" For example, in the early 1980s, a new mining community was being built in north-eastern British Columbia - Tumbler Ridge.

Because this was a brand new town, Tumbler Ridge was a classic example of pure crime prevention.
