Quote from C. Arthur Campbell 

"When we regard a man as morally responsible for an act, we regard him
as a legitimate object of moral praise or blame in respect of it.
But it seems plain that a man cannot be a legitimate object of moral
praise or blame for an act unless in willing the act he is in some
important sense a ‘free’ agent. Evidently free will in some sense,
therefore, is a precondition of moral responsibility."
