Types of Crimes
Most crimes are specific-intent crimes; the actor must have some type of mens rea to be found guilty of the crime. However, there are crimes that are general-intent, or strict-liability, crimes, meaning the actor does not need to have any specific intent, or mens rea, to have committed the crime; the act alone is enough
