The Actus Reus and Means Rea
Updated: Oct 10
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 the Means Rea before said person can be prosecuted.
