Reply to "Is there any difference between them?"

Hi, Kuen—While "breaking the law" and "having a run-in with the law" often go together, they need not go together. To have a run-in with the law is to encounter legal action against oneself. To break the law is simply to go against the law; the authorities may not even notice. Some people "get away with it."
