Basic Information

Societies define crime as the breach of one or more rules or laws for which some governing authority or force may ultimately prescribe a punishment. The key consideration is that a law must exist and the offender must transgress it (not necessarily with intent, although intent - mens rea- is an important factor in some crimes). There is no requirement for any loss to have resulted, merely for the law to be broken is considered an offence against the state for which punishment is exacted1.

Written codes of laws go back at least as far as the ancient Sumerians.

By no means is this list exhaustive. People will try crazy things you've never thought of, and other folks will be sure to make it illegal when they do.
