In common parlance, a crime is an unlawful act punishable by the state or other authority. The concept of a crime in modern criminal law does not have a simple and generally accepted definition. However, legal definitions are given for specific purposes. The most common view is that crime is a category created by law; In other words, something is a crime if it is declared so by applicable law. One of the proposed definitions is that a crime or offence (or criminal offence) is an act that harms not only specific individuals but also a community, society or state (“a public wrong”). Such actions are prohibited and punishable by law.

The notion that acts such as murder, rape, and theft are to be prohibited exists worldwide. What exactly constitutes a crime is determined by the criminal law of each state. While many have a catalogue of crimes called the criminal code, some common law countries do not have such a comprehensive law.

The state (government) has the right to restrict the freedom to commit a crime seriously. In modern societies, there are procedures to be followed by investigations and litigation. If convicted, the perpetrator may be sentenced to compensation in the form of a public sentence or, depending on the nature of the crime, to imprisonment, life imprisonment or, in some jurisdictions, execution.

Usually, to be classified as a crime, the “act of doing something criminal” (actus reus) must, with some exceptions, be accompanied by “intent to commit something criminal” (men’s rea).

While every crime is a violation of the law, not every violation of the law is considered a crime. Breaches of private law (torture and breach of contracts) are not automatically punished by the state but can be imposed through civil proceedings. In common parlance, a crime is an illegal act punishable by the state or other authority. The concept of a crime in modern criminal law does not have a simple and generally accepted definition.
