Mens rea refers to the mental state or intention of the person at the time of committing the crime. It focuses on the accused’s state of mind and their awareness of the wrongful nature of their actions. Establishing mens rea requires demonstrating that the person had a culpable mental state that aligns with the mental element required for a particular offense.
