3. Identify the major differences in a criminal proceeding and a civil proceeding. Why are those differences so profound?
They are not profound. In civil there is a jury of 6. In criminal a jury of 12. In civil, you have to meet the burden of proof that it is more likely than not that your cause of action is correct. In criminal, the prosecutor has the burden to prove that the Defendant is guilty of what he is charged with, beyond a reasonable doubt.
