1. Nobody can read minds, and the First Amendment means that people can say pretty much whatever they want. What you think and say (within limits) is protected. It is what you do-your behaviors-that the criminal law seeks to regulate. Lawyers use the legal Latin phraseactus reus to describe this element of a crime. It is commonly translated into English as the guilty act. The term act can be a bit confusing. Most people tend to think of the term act as an action verb-it is something that people do. The criminal law often seeks to punish people for things that they did not do. When the law commands people to take a particular action and they do not take the commanded action, it is known as an omission. The law commands that people feed and shelter their children. Those who do not are guilty of an offense based on the omission. The law commands that people pay their income taxes; if they do not pay their taxes, the omission can be criminal.

1. An individual commits a crime if he or she acts in a way that fulfills every element of an offense. The statute establishing the offense also establishes the elements of the offense. In general, every crime involves three elements: first, the act or conduct (“actus reus”); second, the individual’s mental state at the time of the act (“mens rea”); and third, the causation between the act and the effect (typically either "proximate causation" or "but-for causation"). In a criminal prosecution, the government has the burden of proof to establish every element of a crime beyond a reasonable doubt. According to the Supreme Court in Elonis v. United States, 575 U.S. __ (2015), when a statute does not prescribe a specific mental state, a court will infer the “mens rea which is necessary to separate wrongful from innocent conduct.”

1. There are two basic elements of crime: the guilty act (actus reus) and the guilty mind (mens rae). A guilty act is defined as an act that, when combined with certain mental state (guilty mind) such as intent, is considered a crime. For example, the act of robbery requires that the criminal take something (guilty act) with the intent (guilty mind) to deprive the owner of the object. In other words, a crime is committed when a guilty act is combined with a guilty mind. Talk to a criminal law lawyer for more information.

1. The life of the criminal law begins with criminalization. Tocriminalize an act-type—call it ϕing—is to make it acrime to commit tokens of that type. Many claim that if it is a crimeto ϕ then ϕing is legally wrongful—it is something that,in the eyes of the law, ought not to be done (Hart 1994, 27; Gardner2007, 239; Tadros 2016, 91). On this view, we are not invited tocommit crimes—like murder, or driving uninsured—just aslong as we willingly take the prescribed legal consequences. As far asthe law is concerned, criminal conduct is to be avoided. This is sowhether or not we are willing to take the consequences. It is possible to imagine a world in which the law gets itsway—in which people uniformly refrain from criminal conduct.Obviously enough this is not the world in which we live. Imagine D isabout to ϕ.

1. Mens reais Latin for “guilty mind.” The legal theory of mens rea refers to criminal intent. The theory states that to convict a defendant of a crime, the prosecution must establish the defendant’s criminal intent. The prosecution must show evidence that the defendant had a culpable mental state at the time of committing the crime. In other words, that the defendant was in a right state of mind and had conscious intent to commit the crime. To convict a person of a crime, that person must have voluntarily, intentionally, knowingly, or purposefully committed the act in question. Failing to possess the mental intention to commit the crime could result in a not-guilty verdict, since the defendant did not knowingly intend to break the law or cause bodily harm. This element of a crime will vary depending on the circumstances. In a murder case, for example, it is enough to establish proof of malice aforethought for mens rea. Other crimes may require knowing, willful, or reckless mens rea.

Consider again the Kantian view.

What is the nature of criminal law?

Criminal law always involves the government and government action, so you will also review the pertinent sections of the United States Constitution and its principles as they apply to criminal law.
