Understanding Criminal Law in San Juan Capistrano

Criminal law” is the name given to the branch of our legal system that deals with punishing people who have committed crimes. The United States has a federal criminal justice system, and each state has its own system for handling criminal cases.

California’s criminal justice system is similar to that of other states, but there are some important differences that you should be aware of if you have been charged with a crime in San Juan Capistrano or another part of Orange County.

In California, crimes are divided into two main categories: felonies and misdemeanors. Misdemeanors are less serious offenses that are punishable by up to one year in county jail, while felonies are more serious offenses that are punishable by imprisonment in state prison.

Some crimes, such as murder and rape, are always felonies. Others, such as petty theft and simple assault, can be either felonies or misdemeanors depending on the circumstances of the case.
