Clearly the individual.  While the burden of every crime falls on both the individual and the society, the individual chooses to break the rules of that society in order to commit the crime.

Of course, again, this is a grey area in many respects.  It depends on the crime, and it depends on the society.  However, the act itself cannot fall on anyone but the individual.  The context and circumstances are a different matter entirely.
