Criminal Justice Discussion

1. What are the four components of criminal offenses? If someone believes that their laptop was stolen and they enter the house of the person who took the laptop (without permission to be there) and retrieve their laptop, have they committed a crime? Do you personally think it should be a crime if they genuinely believed it was their laptop?

2. Some crimes, notably statutory rape, are typically “strict liability” crimes, which essentially means there is no defense. Do you think statutory rape should be a strict liability crime, or should defendants be able to provide justification (eg – “she looked 18” or “she showed me a fake ID”)?

Each question should be at least 200 words and please separate each question. NO PLAGIARISM
