Criminal Lawyer :
A Criminal Lawyer is a term used to describe a criminal defense lawyer or, sometimes, a criminal prosecutor. A criminal defense lawyer is someone that fights for people that have been charged with a crime. On the other hand, a criminal prosecutor is an attorney that represents the state or country in cases against people charged with a criminal offense. States vary on who actually prosecutes criminal cases. Some states have designated state-employed attorneys, often called District Attorneys, while others use attorneys in private practice to carry on in this role. The duties of a criminal lawyer that is prosecuting a person for a criminal case vary by the criminal act that was committed or believed to have been committed. More serious and in-depth cases will require the attorney's participation in the actual investigation of the case, or a least their presence and input. This is often the case with murder, rape, or serious assault cases.
