Past heroic acts not considered in sentence- sentencing to be retried

The Georgia Supreme Court on Monday tossed out the death sentence of a condemned inmate once dubbed a "guardian angel" for saving two people's lives.

The court ordered a new sentencing trial for William Marvin Gulley after finding his trial lawyers failed to show jurors that Gulley had previously rescued two people in Atlanta during a three-day span in 1992.

Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
