Criminal liability is one of the issues that have been discussed in criminology for a long period of time. The debate surrounding criminal liability is based on the question of how, when, and in which way should people be held responsible for crimes.  This debate has been shaped by development of different theories of crime that try to explain the main reason why individuals commit crimes.  Development in criminology has clearly unearthed new knowledge on reasons why people commit crime. There are theories of crime supported by positivist school of criminology developed by Lambrosso that supports the notion that individuals should be held responsible for their crime because they have a prior thought while committing a crime.
