What is the difference between a criminal case and a civil case?

Civil cases are generally brought by private individuals or corporations seeking to collect money owed or monetary damages.  A criminal case is brought by the local, state or federal government in response to a suspected violation of law and seeks a fine, a jail sentence or both.
