Brain scanning may sort intentional crimes from reckless crimes
But it only works if you’re monitoring a brain while the crime’s taking place.

Convicting someone of a crime depends in part on the mental state of the criminal. We make a distinction between knowing criminality and recklessness, and we give the two states of mind different levels of legal culpability. In the courtroom, however, assessing these mental states and a criminal’s past intentions can be extremely challenging.
