  1. criminal suit

    A criminal suit is a legal proceeding initiated by the government or state against an individual or entity accused of committing a crime. This suit seeks to determine the guilt or innocence of the accused party and, if found guilty, enforces punitive measures such as fines, imprisonment, or other forms of punishment determined by the relevant law. The standard of proof in a criminal suit is typically "beyond reasonable doubt," a higher standard than what is required in civil suits.
