In criminal cases, the government is always the prosecuting party. The prosecution must prove its case against the defendant “beyond a reasonable doubt”. Defendants have rights that are guaranteed to them by the U.S. Constitution, which help to ensure that they have a fair trial. State law and state constitutions may protect other rights. If the crime is serious enough, juveniles may be tried as adults in some states.
