Chapter 2

ACTUS REUS AND MENS REA


Introductory note: All crimes have several basic common elements. This chapter treats all but one of the major ones: (1) a voluntary act (“actus reus”); (2) a culpable intent (“mens rea”); and (3) “concurrence” between the mens rea and the actus reus (i.e., a showing that the act was the result of the culpable intention). The fourth major element, causation of harm, is discussed in the following chapter, infra, p. 55.
