Criminal law refers to the body of law which regulates those actions which have the potential to harm interests of the state or the federal government.

Criminal law is a branch of law that deals with crimes committed by individuals or organizations that violate the rules set by the government. It involves the prosecution of individuals who have committed crimes such as murder, theft, assault, fraud, and other similar offenses.

In psychology, criminal law intersects with the study of forensic psychology, which involves the application of psychology to the criminal justice system. Forensic psychologists may work with law enforcement officials, courts, and correctional facilities to help with criminal investigations, evaluate offenders, and develop treatment programs.

Examples of criminal law in action include a person being arrested for theft after being caught stealing from a store, or an individual being charged with assault after attacking someone else. The penalties for committing a crime can include fines, imprisonment, probation, community service, and other forms of punishment. In some cases, individuals may also be ordered to undergo therapy or counseling to address underlying psychological issues that contributed to their criminal behavior.
