What is a criminal investigation?
A criminal investigation is an investigation that seeks, collects, and gathers evidence of a crime for a case or specific purpose.
A criminal investigator looks for clues and evidence to determine whether a crime has taken place. If a crime has been committed, private investigators may obtain the background of the individual(s) involved an attempt to uncover who committed the crime. Today, a growing number of individuals are choosing to launch their criminal investigations with the help of professional private investigators.

- Soft Fraud: Normally honest people often tell “little white lies” to their insurance company for the purposes of filing or maximizing a claim. Many people think it’s just harmless fudging. But soft fraud is a crime, and seemingly minor offenses collectively raise everyone’s insurance costs.
Each state has credit card fraud laws that prohibit the illegal possession and use of a credit or debit card. They have statutes for the physical possession and use of a stolen card.

For instance, Alabama Code § 13A-9-14 punishes credit or debit card theft, while § 13A-8-192 punishes identity theft or the possession of identifying information.
Federal law defines voluntary manslaughter as the unlawful killing of a human being without malice [u]pon a sudden quarrel or heat of passion.
The exact meaning of the heat of passion varies depending on the situation, but the term generally refers to an irresistible emotion that an ordinarily reasonable person would experience under the same facts and circumstances. This idea of an irresistible impulse contrasts with the idea of premeditation present in first degree murder, and a showing of one necessarily negates the other.
