L'enquête pénale privée : étude comparée des droits français et américain

Abstract : The criminal proceedings is built around the idea that the monopoly for conducting investigations is held by representatives of the public authorities. However, this observation is becoming less and less true. Multiple factors contribute to disputing this specific prerogative of the criminal proceedings to the official investigators. Be they private detectives, investigative reporters, or even ordinary citizens involved in the implementation of the criminal law, many individuals operate investigative acts that may inform the sentencing judge during a trial. This increase of the private criminal investigation deserves to be further analyzed as it implies several risks to the criminal justice in terms of legitimacy, legality and equality before the law. To better handle these problematics, a comparison with the US Law, land of private investigations, seemed obvious.
