Modern Anglo-American criminal law and stages during the course of committing crime
Keywords: criminal attempt; preparation; mens rea; actus reus
Abstract
Throughout the history of the criminal law, in every Anglo-Saxon jurisdiction, there were two elements of an attempt to commit crime - an intention (mens rea) and an act (actus reus). No act is indictable as an attempt, unless it is a step toward the execution of the criminal purpose and is an act directly approximating or immediately connected with the commission of the offense that the person has in mind. An attempt is an act of such a nature that it is itself evidence of the criminal intent with which it is done. Anglo - American criminal law, characteristically distinguishes between preparation and attempt.
