What would happen if you didnt have criminal justice?

Criminals wouldn't be trialed fairly, or they would rome freely. The Innocent could be mixed in with the guiltly and you can put an innocent mans life in behind bars. Or the alternative, the Guilty could be treated as an innocent and could be let go. In conclusion, if we didn't have criminal justice there is no point on having any laws, if justice won't be served.

What type of tort can an accused person initiate if criminal proceedings end in favor of the accused person?

According to the Torts Personal Injury Litigation 4thed by William Statsky textbook on pg 134 It says that an accused person can file a Malicious Prosecution Tort when the proceedings end in their favor.Added: Despite common misconception by the public to the contrary, a defendant in a criminal trial is NEVER declared "innocent" of the charge, they are simply found 'not guilty." Therefore a criminal trial can never truly be said to end in the defendant's "favor."If you were found 'not guilty'and you believe that you have sufficient evidence to prove that a civil wrong was committed against you by either the victim/complainant and/or the state itself, you may file suit against either or both at your discretion.
