The Image in this template[edit]

The image that's being used on the criminal law template (Image:Justice12.jpg) doesnt have any source or copyright information. The uploader hasnt responded to requests for some, and so the image is now at a state where it can be speedily deleted, but rather than do that, would somone who is looking after the template perhaps have a look?

Please see the discussion on talk:regulatory offences for why this template needs to change the reference from regulatory offences to infraction. I will do this in about a day or so, after people have time to comment. Thesmothete 06:08, 17 February 2006 (UTC)

English criminal law[edit]

Template:Criminal law looks similar to Template:English criminal law. Changes to one may need to be carried through to the other.--Henrygb 09:17, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

New templates[edit]

Hi I've done some major revamping to Template:Criminal defenses, Template:CrimPro and added Template:Criminal case and Template:Types of crime. Most of the criminal law pages have been changed to go to one of these but for the few stragglers I propose redirecting this page. I'll do this in the next few days if this page stays quiet.

Prostitution[edit]

The accompanying template includes "Pimping" and "Sexual offenses" both as crimes against persons, but neither of those seems to cover (at least to the extent that Prostitution lacks the temlate]] the crimes of prostitution or of solicitation for prostitution, which do exist despite the their non-universal criminality. Bad information design, and probably PoV.

link to pimping[edit]

The link for Pimping leads to pimp which is pretty messy in terms of presentation and doesn't directly discuss pimping as a criminal act including relevant laws etc.

Could a new article like pimping (crime) be started and could the template link to that instead so it can be addressed as a legal subject? --I (talk) 18:10, 13 September 2008 (UTC)

Generality[edit]

I edited the template to hit on the major areas of criminal law... I'm thinking the naxbox need not be comprehensive, only robust, if you know what I mean. Foofighter20x (talk) 07:51, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

Others to add, once a page is created for them (by themselves, that is): Defense of Others, Defense of Property, Defense of Dwelling, Effecting Lawful Arrest, Prevention of Felony, Public Authority, Domestic Authority. Foofighter20x (talk) 08:43, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

Horizontal bar at the bottom[edit]

This would be best as a horizontal bar at the bottom. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 19:15, 17 April 2011 (UTC)
