This chapter focuses on criminal law and procedure in Mexico. It begins by examining the historical background and sources of criminal law, and this is followed by a discussion on judicial precedent in criminal matters and the scope of federal criminal Law. It then provides an overview of criminal offences, and describes criminal punishment as well as termination of criminal liability. Finally, it discusses federal criminal procedure, which has served as the model for criminal procedure in most of the states.
