Natural and Legal Crime 2 Abstract This paper will explain the difference between Natural and Legal Crime .It will also attempt to compare and contrast natural and legal crime. The differences in these two crime types are that times hazy given the nature of the relationship between money and human need in the modern world. In many cases if one loses their money, they could as a result suffer grievous personal injury. Legal scholars have had differing opinions concerning the definitions of mala prohibita and mala in se for many years. "Efforts to define mala in se , on the other hand, have resulted in vague, often conflicting meanings that leave the analyst with little but examples to serve as definitions." (Mathewson, 2009)

Natural and Legal Crime 3 Introduction Committing an act of crime, if caught, results in some type of punishment or warning. Murder, for example, depending upon the degree of intention to commit the act may lead to a finite number of years in prison or possible lethal injection. Prostitution in some states may be considered more of a slap on the wrist, leading to only a few days or weeks of incarceration. The difference between the two is not only the severity of the crime, but how the crime is categorized. Murder, on one hand, is a Natural Crime. Murder is a morally wrong act that is unquestionable. Prostitution, on the other hand, is only illegal because a law has been created (in some states) to prevent this type of sexual promiscuity, also known as a Legal Crime. Natural and Legal Crime
