When is Strict Liability applied in US Criminal Law?

Strict Liability is usually not something you hear of when referring to criminal law matters. However, that is because most people are more familiar with strict liability as it pertains to lawsuits filed in regards to defective products. Strict liability in criminal law actually adheres to the same doctrine—a person is responsible for any damages or harm their actions may have caused regardless of any intention to do harm or cause damage.

To understand strict liability as it pertains to criminal law, we must first recognize that “intent” is the degree by which the law measures culpability in most criminal acts.

Criminal defenses: insanity of mental disorder

The idea of using a plea of insanity as a legal defense in a criminal case is not new. The penal code written in France more than 200 years ago said,in part,”There has been no offense is the accused person was insane or was compelled by a force they could not resist”. So,what do they mean by “a force they could not resist”? It could be interpreted as meaning drug addiction. Suppose a man is addicted to drugs,so he robs a bank to get money so he can buy more drugs. His addiction compelled him to rob the bank. This concept laid the foundation for methadone treatment programs because it implied that drug addicts were not really guilty of a crime,they were compelled to commit criminal acts by the drugs they took. So,today a judge may order a drug addict to participate in a methadone treatment program,instead of sending him to prison.

Subject Matter Jurisdiction versus Personal Jurisdiction

Personal Jurisdiction and Subject Matter Jurisdiction are legal terms-of-art that have tormented law students for hundreds of years. Conceptually, the authority of a court is something that most people don’t think about. For the average citizen, if you get a ticket that says to be at court, you show up. You don’t care whether the court you are going to is the right one for the offense and usually don’t question the authority of the court over you.
Jurisdiction is easier to think about if you put it into a more familiar context. Most people watch movies and televisions shows where the local law enforcement officers (LEO’s) are telling the federal officers from the FBI, CIA, or MIB (Men in Black), that they will not be, “putting up with that juris-my-diction crap.” Jurisdiction is what gives the local police authority over a particular case; and what gives the federal government authority over the LEO’s in some cases.
