Conspiracy/Complicity

Postby colerain » Sat May 11, 2013 1:36 pm

I am confused as hell on what to do about the mens rea for conspiracy and complicity.

A statute reads: "whoever enters the home of another, without authority or permission, is guilty of..."
It has been interpreted as a general intent crime carrying the mens rea of recklessly.

How does that work for conspiracy/complicity? I know the mens rea is typically raised to purposely, but how does that all fit in?

Thank you!
