The system of criminal theory and the definition of crime

How to structure (systematize) the requirements for establishing a crime is called the problem of the criminal theory system.This systematization defines crime.

Criminal LawIn countries that inherit the German criminal law theory (such as Japan), the crimes in Japan are systematized into three elements: constituent requirements, illegality, and liability.Configuration requirementsIt is often defined as "an illegal and liable act".However, some criminal law scholars use other systems to define crimes (eg, illegal and deliberate acts that meet constituent requirements (negligence is an exception), "responsible" asks about "actor"). ..

Applicability of configuration requirements

Action theory

actionAnything that is not can be a crime, and it can be said that activity is the first requirement for being a crime.There is also a view that actability is grasped as a prerequisite for the applicability of constituent requirements.There are conflicting views on the meaning of the act (Action theory).An example of consensus as non-act is the identity of a person (having an identity relationship with the perpetrator of the crime-Collective punishment・ There are such things as collective punishment) and psychological states (certain thoughts, etc.) (historically, these have been criminalized).The fact that crime must be an act means that these things can or cannot be crimes.What is an act?Asnot onlyInactionIs a concept that includes.

German criminal law scholars and others cite the four elements of crime, constitutional requirements, illegality, and liability as requirements for establishing a crime.However, in many German and Japanese theories, the theory of conduct is often discussed by incorporating it into the applicability of constituent requirements.

Constituent requirement theory

German criminal law scholarMax Ernst MayerIn Germany and Japan, including the above, the three elements of constituent requirements, illegality, and liability are listed as the requirements for establishing a crime, and the constituent requirements are the first requirements for establishing a crime.

Regarding the establishment of a crimeCriminal statutory principleFrom the viewpoint of, first, the applicability of the constituent requirements is judged.Constituent requirements (also satisfiability) are required for the facts that are subject to censure.Configuration requirementsIsCriminal law details,Special criminal lawIt is an act type stipulated for each individual crime.To put it simply, whether or not the act matches the content stipulated as a crime pattern is a matter of applicability to the constituent requirements.The constituent element includes an act (excluding the theory that the act is regarded as a criminal establishment requirement different from the constituent requirement), the subject of the act, the object of the act, the situation of the act, and the like.The constituent requirements of each crime type are unique actions, consequences,Causal relationship, The actor, the situation, the psychological state, etc. are equipped with merkmal (constituent elements), and the applicability of the constituent requirements is affirmed only when the facts to be blamed correspond to all of them.In addition, in the configuration requirementsBasic configuration requirements(Those with direct punishment provisions)Modified configuration requirements(Attempted criminal,AccompliceEtc.).

The subject of the act isNatural personMust be, under criminal lawCorporationIn Japan, it is common knowledge that a person does not become the subject of a crime.However, it can be subject to punishment under the provisions of special laws.double penaltySee also).In addition, it should be notedHuman capitalOther creatures cannot be the subject of crime (there was a legal system that could be historical).

In addition, there is a theory that, like the German criminal law scholar Megger, the three elements of act, illegality, and liability are listed as the requirements for establishing a crime, and the elements of the constituent requirements are incorporated into the illegality.


Following the judgment of the applicability of the constituent requirementsJudgment of illegalityIs done.According to the common wisdom, constituent requirements are a type of illegal and liable act, so at this stage when the constituent requirements are recognized as applicable,The reason for illegal denialOnly matters.Non-illegal acts are not harmful, are not prohibited, and therefore do not constitute a crime, even if they meet the constituent requirements.In other words, even if it corresponds to the crime pattern of constituent requirements, if it is not bad (not illegal), it does not constitute a crime.The grounds for blocking illegality include, for example, "We will not punish unavoidable acts in order to protect the rights of ourselves or others against infringement of imminent injustice."Criminal lawArticle 36)Legitimate defenseThere is a provision of.In addition, there are also unclear grounds for blocking illegality (Extrajudicial Illegal Blocking Reasons).

The essence of illegality is said to be a violation of ethical norms (norm violation theory), or infringement or threatening of legal interests (legal interest infringement theory).There are many views that are a compromise between the two, but the view that only infringes legal interests is also influential.This confrontation is in serious conflict with the theory (so-called), in connection with the issue of the reference time (judgment at the time of action or ex post facto) of judgment of illegality.Act worthless theoryResult worthless theoryConflict.Usually, it is understood as norm violation theory = act judgment = act worthless theory, legal interest infringement theory = ex post judgment = result worthless theory).


After judging the illegalityJudgment of responsibilityIs done.Even if it is an illegal act that meets the constituent requirements, it can only be criticized if it is voluntary (the actor's voluntary) intention, and therefore it is normative to take other acts. If it cannot be expected, it cannot be criticized, and it is said that it is not appropriate to make it a target of treatment or education, and it is not appropriate to make it a target of punishment (moral responsibility theory).This part raises the question of whether it is appropriate to hold the criminal responsible if the criminal pattern is found to be an illegal act based on the judgment in the first two steps. ..

For example, if you misunderstand the facts that correspond to the grounds for blocking illegalityIntentional liabilityIs not asked (except for the strict liability theory).Also, the actorCriminal minorOr severeMental disorderIf you are suffering from, the person's actions are not subject to punishment.There is no clear responsibility elementReasons for blocking liabilityIs also accepted.

Incidentally,Objective punishment conditions,Reasons for blocking personal punishmentThere is a concept of punishment conditions such as, but these are only the question of whether punishment is possible on the premise of the establishment of a crime.However, the view of incorporating these into the constituent elements is also influential.Guilty chargesInChargesEtc. in the criminal procedureLitigation termsAnd a detectiveSubstantive lawIs not treated as a problem.

Crime classification

Criminal law classification

  • Classification by the relationship between result generation and configuration requirements
    • Result criminal: Crime that requires a certain result as a component
    • Behavior criminal: A crime that does not require the occurrence of a result as a constituent element and is established if there is a certain external physical movement of the actor.
    • Consequential weighted criminal: A crime that is committed when a certain result occurs after the basic constituent requirements (basic offense) are met.
  • Classification by mode of infringement of protection law interests
    • : Crimes that require the occurrence of legal infringement or the risk of legal infringement
      • Infringer: Crime that requires certain specific infringement of legal interests
      • Dangerous criminal: Crimes committed due to the risk of infringement of legal interests
        • Specific dangerous criminal: Crimes that require the occurrence of a specific risk of legal infringement (realistic legal infringement risk)
        • Abstract danger criminal: Crimes committed by the occurrence of an abstract risk of legal infringement (general risk of legal infringement in common wisdom)
    • Formal offender: Crime that does not require the risk of legal infringement
  • Classification by the relationship between legal infringement and criminal facts
    • Immediate criminal: Immediate offenses are those in which the facts applicable to the constituent requirements are completed due to infringement or threatening of legal interests and are terminated at the same time.
      Examples include murder / injury and damage to property.This is because if you kill or destroy it, the infringement of legal interests will not continue.
    • Zustandsdelikt: A crime in which the facts applicable to the constituent requirements are completed by infringement / compromise of legal interests, but the situation of infringement / compromise of legal interests continues thereafter.
      Examples include theft, embezzlement and fraud.Here, the continuation of the legal infringement situation after the end of the crime is not a criminal fact.
    • Dauerdelikt: Dauerdelikt is a crime that requires the continuation of legal infringement / threatening situation.
      An example is imprisonment.
      > About the distinction between continuous offenders and state offenders
      In both cases, it is the same that the status of legal infringement / compromise = the result continues.However, even if the occurrence of results is required as the content of the constituent requirements, it is distinguished in that the continuation of the infringement / threatening situation of legal interests that has occurred is not a requirement.
      In other words, it is different whether or not the result = continuation of the infringement / threatening situation of legal interests is a constituent element.
  • Classification by subjective illegal elements
However, there are some disagreements about subjective illegal elements.
