The Actus Reus and Mens Rea
In Texas, prosecutors must prove, not only that the actual criminal act occurred, but also that the person also had the mental capacity to commit it. There is a huge obstacle for the prosecution, when a person is innocent. Whether the charge is murder, assault, DWI, sex crimes, prostitution, battery, robbery, or any other charge of a crime, a person must have both the Actus Reus and Mens Rea before a said person can be prosecuted.
