What is criminal law?
Criminal law is the branch of public law that regulates the punitive or sanctioning power of the State, together with the sanctioning administrative right. The difference between the two is that administrative sanctions are imposed on administrative infractions, while criminal sanctions are imposed against crimes, which are typified in the Penal Code because they affect specially protected legal rights.
Within what is strictly known as criminal law, two parts are distinguished. On the one hand, the general part, which regulates in a theoretical and conceptual way what is a crime and what are its legal consequences. On the other hand, there is the special part, responsible for defining specifically what behaviors are typified as crimes in our legal system and what are the legal consequences that lead to such behaviors, that is, the penalties and security measures that must be imposed on the actors.
Finally, we must mention the criminal procedural law, which is responsible for regulating the processes by which the criminal rules promulgated by the State are applied.
