CAPITAL VS. NON-CAPITAL

 

Capital Cases or the death penalty is a legal process whereby a person is put to death by the state as a punishment for a crime. The judicial decree that someone be punished in this manner is a death sentence, while the actual enforcement is an execution. Crimes that can result in a death penalty are known as capital crimes or capital offenses.

 

Non-Capital Cases are felony or misdemeanor cases not punishable by death.
