Criminal law is the area of law concerned not with disputes between individuals, but with offenses against the public order. The federal government, along with cities and states, defines and prosecutes people who commit crimes that range from minor traffic violations, to serious, violent offenses, like rape or murder. People who are charged with a crime are called defendants, and they are represented by criminal defense attorneys. The governmental body that pursues the charges against the defendant is represented by a lawyer called a prosecutor.
Each state has a different set of laws, and criminal law is complex. Arkansas criminal law is no exception. If you find yourself charged with a crime, you need the legal counsel of an experienced criminal defense attorney, to protect your rights now and in the future.
