Mexican document.

DELINCUENTES PROCESADOS POR DELITOS DEL FUERO COMUN
mauricio
English translation:common law
Explanation:
Here's an excerpt in Spanish and English, from a Website comparing Mexican and US law. You might find it useful for other terms you are seeking. I'm also giving you the URL for the Alta Vista search results for "fuero común" IN ENGLISH (so I could locate texts with both English and Spanish--a good trick when you're trying to find a term *in context*)

3. Criminal Code (Código Penal) (1931)

Mexico's substantive criminal laws are very similar to those of the United States. Vargas, supra, comments that there are a few differences in emphasis—particularly in the areas of sentencing and
drugs—but otherwise the Mexican Criminal Code is not significantly different from the codified criminal laws in the United States. The Criminal Code for the Federal District, the model for all corresponding state codes, has not been amended significantly since its adoption in 1931.

Código penal para el Distrito Federal en materia de fuero común, y para toda la Républica en materia de fuero federal / prólogo y revisión por Efraín García Rimírez. [Penal code for the Federal District in the matter of common law, and for all the Republic in the matter of federal law / prologue and revision by Efraín García Rimírez] (1998) [KGF7690 .A29 1931 A63 1998].

offences under state law


Explanation:
As opposed to federal law. Unless you're dealing with the Distrito Federal where federal offences are also 'delitos del fuero común'(Código Penal para el DF en material del fuero común y para toda la república en materia del fuero federal)
