“Criminal” & “Civil” Law

There are 2 systems of law within The United States Judicial Branch; Criminal & Civil.  Here’s a brief overview to learn the difference between the two:

Criminal LawOfficers enforce laws written within a referable body of statutes, & the County, State, or Federal government pick up the case if they decide to prosecute.

Civil Law; Officials respond to “Verified Complaints of Damaged Parties” (the Plaintiff), & make arrests OR “serve papers” to the Defendant so that they are to appear in court.  If the Defendant misses their appearance, it is a Criminal offense.
