Criminal Lawyers in Sandton

The term criminal law normally refers to practical criminal laws. The substantive criminal laws define crimes and may establish penalties. In contrast, Criminal Procedure describes the process through which the criminal laws are imposed. For instance, the law prohibiting murder is a substantive criminal law. The manner in which government enforces this substantive law – through the gathering of evidence and prosecution—is normally considered a procedural matter.
