'You can't be convicted of a crime without a guilty act and a guilty mind.' A lawyer might express the same idea using Latin: 'You can't be convicted of a crime without actus reus and mens rea.' 'Guilty Acts, Guilty Minds' proposes an interpretation of mens rea and actus reus as limits on the authority of a democratic state to ascribe guilt through positive law to those accused of crime.
