The Image in this template[edit]

The image that's being used on the criminal law template (Image:Justice12.jpg) doesnt have any source or copyright information. The uploader hasnt responded to requests for some, and so the image is now at a state where it can be speedily deleted, but rather than do that, would somone who is looking after the template perhaps have a look?

Please see the discussion on talk:regulatory offences for why this template needs to change the reference from regulatory offences to infraction. I will do this in about a day or so, after people have time to comment. Thesmothete 06:08, 17 February 2006 (UTC)

English criminal law[edit]

Template:Criminal law looks similar to Template:English criminal law. Changes to one may need to be carried through to the other.--Henrygb 09:17, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

New templates[edit]

Hi I've done some major revamping to Template:Criminal defenses, Template:CrimPro and added Template:Criminal case and Template:Types of crime. Most of the criminal law pages have been changed to go to one of these but for the few stragglers I propose redirecting this page. I'll do this in the next few days if this page stays quiet.

Prostitution[edit]

The accompanying template includes "Pimping" and "Sexual offenses" both as crimes against persons, but neither of those seems to cover (at least to the extent that Prostitution lacks the temlate]] the crimes of prostitution or of solicitation for prostitution, which do exist despite the their non-universal criminality. Bad information design, and probably PoV.

link to pimping[edit]

The link for Pimping leads to pimp which is pretty messy in terms of presentation and doesn't directly discuss pimping as a criminal act including relevant laws etc.

Could a new article like pimping (crime) be started and could the template link to that instead so it can be addressed as a legal subject? --I (talk) 18:10, 13 September 2008 (UTC)

Generality[edit]

I edited the template to hit on the major areas of criminal law... I'm thinking the naxbox need not be comprehensive, only robust, if you know what I mean. Foofighter20x (talk) 07:51, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

Others to add, once a page is created for them (by themselves, that is): Defense of Others, Defense of Property, Defense of Dwelling, Effecting Lawful Arrest, Prevention of Felony, Public Authority, Domestic Authority. Foofighter20x (talk) 08:43, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

Horizontal bar at the bottom[edit]

This would be best as a horizontal bar at the bottom. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 19:15, 17 April 2011 (UTC)

Statutory rape[edit]

Statutory rape is listed under "victimless crime" in the criminal law sidebar. While I can see there are instances in which it would be (for example, two minors who have consensual sex), generally statutory rape is used to describe an adult having sex with a minor, and indeed this is what the linked article largely covers; in that instance, the minor is unable to consent, and therefore it is rape, and there is a rape victim. I think it's very dangerous to categorise something like that as "victimless" and suggest it be moved. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.13.186.32 (talk) 12:53, 5 February 2015 (UTC)

Why "Part of common law series"?[edit]

Is it implying that criminal law is a concept only in common law systems? What about other systems? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2606:6000:6787:CF00:A049:C09A:9FAD:9F40 (talk) 21:27, 14 November 2015 (UTC)

Removing if no objections2606:6000:6787:CF00:315A:3A28:8942:D4CC (talk) 02:08, 13 December 2015 (UTC)

Making the categories of the template collapsible?[edit]

The Criminal Law series template has become excessively long. To reduce its size should we make the categories collapsible? This will also make it short enough to re-add the series image while keeping it at a manageable size (why was it removed anyway?). — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ireadandcheck (talkcontribs) 16:04, 8 April 2016 (UTC)

Victimless Crime section[edit]

I removed the victimless crime section as the term "victimless crime" is too subjective. Look at how many back-and-forth edits we've had over what's "victimless" and what's not. Please discuss here. --MikeD789364 (talk) 17:20, 29 August 2016 (UTC)


updating Victimless Crime section[edit]

I like to change some points and add one.

Masturbation

The entry from Revision as of 17:52, 18 June 2015 regarding masturbation as crime seems a bit odd, that's why i'd remove it and added exhibitionism.

Suicide

Also removing suicide, since it's legal since the roman empire till the european union (see #Suicide legislation).

Sex Toys

In only five states (of 193) worldwide are legal issues about the sale of sex toys, the Anti-Obscenity Enforcement Act could be a crime against humanity, but it's overal relevance is minimal (0,0064% / 6,4‰ of the world population are affected).

Zoophilia

It's not included in this list by now. Laws regarding intercourse with animals change and are very different by country / cultural influence. So who thinks this should be added and who believes it shouldn't?

Exhibitionism

Should it be included as indecent exposure or exhibitionism? I see indecent exposure as an to wide defined area. Exhibitionism states clearly the meaning of showing the body/parts, so it's clearly different from nudism (which usually has a healt h purpose and is practiced inside cultural habits).

Defamation What do you guys think about adding Defamation into the template?
