# R.

Abbreviation for Rex or Regina [Latin: King or Queen]
Criminal prosecutions on indictment are brought in the name of the Crown, since a crime is viewed as a wrong against the public at large, or the state, represented by the monarch. Hence the formula R. v Defendant (the Crown versus the defendant).
