Provide your opinion of whether or not criminal liability and punishment for inchoate offenses are “fair” or not. How do the concepts of actus reus and mens rea fit with inchoate offenses? Should someone charged with an inchoate offense suffer the same punishment as the primary actors of the crime? Should people be criminally convicted for the crime of conspiracy where no underlying crime actually occurs?
Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references.
