In English, we don’t say “do a crime.” Instead, we use the verb “commit.”
- The defendant is accused of committing murder
- Do you think she committed the crime?
Committing (more common) or commission (less common)
- He is on trial for committing the crime of murder.
- She is on trial for the commission of several crimes.
In non-legal situations, “commit” is usually associated with making a promise or vow.
“As a doctor, I have committed my life to helping people.”
“She has committed to working with us through the end of the year.”
