Best Answer

Criminal liability is the culpability for acts which harm society,and which are prosecuted by the government. Crimes, unlike torts, requite intent. "Black letter law" requires an "actus reus"and a "mens rea." You must mean to do the act, and the act must be completed.

Some negligence can lead to criminall iability--acts which the actor knew or should have known were unreasonbly dangerous. Drunk driving homicide is an example.The killing was not intentional, but getting into you car intoxicated was/is.Thus it can lead to criminal liabillity.
