Civil Trials and Criminal Trials In order to fully understand the difference between civil trials and criminal trials you must understand the different aspects of the laws that comply with them individually A civil law provides private and individual redress by means of which injured persons sue those who have injured them An example of a civil trial would be Mr Adams suing Mr Edwards for hitting his car The primary object of a civil action is to recover money or an object or objects Criminal law represents the power of the government to prevent and punish ially harmful behavior An example of a criminal trial would be where a crime has been committed such as Mr Adams and Mr Edwards get in an argument and Mr Adams attacks Mr Edwards with a baseball bat causing injuries to Mr Edwards So by comparing civil trials and criminal trials civil trials are handled on a different level than criminal trials and both will have different punishments Part Two Voluntary Manslaughter and 2nd Degree Murder Voluntary manslaughter is the intentional killing committed in the sudden heat of passion upon adequate provocation Usually the person is not in the correct state of mind when the crimes are being committed An example of voluntary manslaughter would be Mr Johnson coming home to find his wife of ten years in bed with another man broken-hearted and enraged Mr Johnson takes a pistol and kills his wife His mind was blank and confused during the shooting simply in the heat of passion Second-degree murder is a catchall offense including killings that are neither manslaughter nor first-degree murder Second-degree murder consists of pre-meditationtime to think about what you are doing before you do it sometimes even planning when and how the events will take place An example of second-degree murder would be on Monday during school
