Criminal contempt of court

 Criminal contempt charges are punitive in nature, which means they serve to dissuade future acts
of contempt by punishing the guilty party regardless of what occurs in the fundamental proceeding.
Somebody imprisoned for criminal contempt can't secure their own particular discharge by choosing to
comply to the court.
