Elements of Crime Andrés Victoriá 11/2/18 Elements of Crime There are multiple elements to crime. Crime happens in different ways for different reasons. Crimes are divided into two categories: misdemeanors and felonies. Regardless of the crime committed, a few factors are examined in determining the origin, nature, and extent of the crime. These factors are called actus rea, which means guilty act, and mens rea, which means guilty mind. The following case involves Brayan Panarella, a man who’s being charged with first-degree manslaughter for armed robbery. In May 26, 2015, Brayan Panarella was tried for first-degree manslaughter due to his involvement in an armed robbery. “Bryan Panarella pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter in January for his role in an armed robbery inside a Stillwell Ave. apartment on May 26, 2015, that left 26-year-old Gavin Becerra dead from gunshot wounds to the torso and legs.” [Chr18].
