Could a golem break the commandments? And what would happen if one did?

Hypothetically, if going by Jewish folklore rules, how would this have turned out? Suppose someone made a golem but decided to employ it for unjust purposes. As a creation of a human, would the golem be able to carry out the task, or as a manifestation of forces which God allowed to exist, would the golem be unable to perform this task? And if the former would’ve been the case, would the golem, as an individual, be punished, or would the human responsible for its creation?
