Question 29 of 30   15.0 Points
Discuss the legal issues involved with a deliberate elbow to the face or a knee to the groin in basketball, the deliberate use of spikes by a runner in baseball, eye gouging in football, or other violence that causes unnecessary injuries-is it a battery or an assault?

In one recent case, the Washington Court of Appeals held that an assault was committed when, during a game, one basketball player intentionally punched another player.11 In State v. Floyd, 466 N.W.2d 919 (Iowa 1990), the court upheld the conviction for assault where the defendant was sitting on the bench when a fight broke out on the basketball court. The defendant attacked two players on the opposing team who were also on the sidelines. The court said the “voluntary participant” rule did not apply, since neither the defendant nor the victims were involved in the game when the assault occurred.

 [1] Thomas Gardner & Terry Anderson, Criminal Law, 11th Edition, (2010)

Question 30 of 30   15.0 Points
Defendant went to the victim's house supposedly to look at and buy a rifle owned by the victim. When the victim gave the rifle to the defendant to inspect, he turned the rifle on the victim and refused to give the rifle back. Can he be convicted of robbery? What argument can he make that he cannot be so convicted? Is it a good argument? Defend your answer.

The defendant can make the argument he did not have the intent to steal the rifle. He can also make the argument that he did not carry it away, there was only a taking. If this is true element number one of robbery cannot be met. He could further argue there was no taking, that the victim voluntarily gave it to him to look at.

Robbery is forcible stealing. It is one of the most frequent crimes of violence in the United States. The common law crime of robbery was defined before the early English courts had defined larceny. The usual elements incorporated into the modern statutory definition of robbery are as follows:  A taking and carrying away (only a slight movement of the property is needed) of the property of another with intent to steal from the person or from the presence of the victim by the use of force against the person, or with the threat of the use of imminent force, to compel the victim to acquiesce in the taking and carrying away of the property.

Strong-arm robbery, such as mugging and yoking (or simple robbery), is distinguished in probably all state statutes from the aggravated form of robbery, commonly called armed robbery. Armed robbery carries penalties that are more severe than those for simple robbery. Some of the statutory distinctions various states use in distinguishing between armed robbery and simple robbery are the following: That the perpetrator was armed with a “dangerous” or “deadly” weapon that the perpetrator intended to kill or wound if the victim resisted that the perpetrator did actually inflict a bodily injury.

Robbery, then, is taking property from the person or from the presence of a victim by the use of force or the threat of force.

Question 29 of 30   15.0 Points
X, a construction worker, is working on the fourth floor of a building under construction in the downtown area of a city. His conduct caused the death of W, who was hit on the head by a crowbar as she was walking on the sidewalk past the building. 1. X deliberately dropped the heavy crowbar so as to hit W on the head. 2. X did not want to kill anybody but wanted to see the people scatter when he dropped the crowbar to the sidewalk. 3. X threw the crowbar at another worker in a fight, but missed. The crowbar fell, killing W on the sidewalk below. 4. X came to work drunk and accidentally pushed the crowbar off the edge of the building. Assuming a jurisdiction uses the mental fault classification similar to that suggested by the Model Penal Code, set forth in your textbook, what crimes, if any, could X be charged with in each of these examples? What arguments are available to X based on his degree of mental fault?

In all of the situations the physical harm was the same result, the death of W. However, the mental intent is different in each. In 1), X acted with specific intent to cause death or serious injury and would be found guilty of murder. In 2), X’s conduct was reckless, he knew or should have known the likely hood that death or serious injury would result by dropping a crow bar down into a crowed sidewalk, therefore he should be found guilty of second degree murder. In 3), X had the specific intent to cause injury to the worker he threw the crowbar at and would be liable through transferred intent of the person he killed. The question becomes whether or not X had specific intent to kill the worker or just to cause injury. If he had the intent to kill, but it was due to the heat of the moment and he snapped due to being outraged with the worker he could possibly be charged with voluntary manslaughter under the model penal code. In 4), X would more than likely be found guilty of involuntary manslaughter. I don’t think he had specific intent to kill but due to his negligence, that being coming to work drunk, caused the death. Latin as actus non facit reum nisi mens sit rea (“an act does not make a person guilty unless the mind is guilty”). The term mens rea means evil intent, criminal purpose, and knowledge of the wrongfulness of conduct. It is also used to indicate the mental state required by the crime charged, whether that be specifi c intent to commit the crime, recklessness, guilty knowledge, malice, or criminal negligence. Criminal liability usually requires “an evil-meaning mind [and] an evil-doing hand.” [1].  However, while the phrase “evil-meaning mind” suggests an evil purpose for doing the evil act, a mind can be “guilty” without such evil purpose. For example, doing an act recklessly, but without the “evil” intent to harm another, may lack the mens rea for one crime but nonetheless satisfy the mens rea requirement of another. One’s state of mind can range from being “purposeful” that is, intending a particular result or consequence to merely negligent that is, failing to be aware of the probable results or consequences of an act.
[1] Thomas Gardner & Terry Anderson, Criminal Law, 11th Edition, 50-79, (2010)


Question 30 of 30   15.0 Points
Discuss when force in self-defense or the defense of another may not be used. Please give exmaples to support your answer.

Force cannot be used in self-defense or in the defense of another person under the following circumstances: 1. The force is not immediately necessary.  2. The amount of force is unreasonable.  3. The other person’s actions are lawful. (Force in self-defense or the defense of another must be immediately necessary to protect against unlawful force.)  4. The force used cannot be based on a fear that another person means to do harm sometime in the future if there is no immediate fear of harm. State v. Buggs, 806 P.2d 1381 (Ariz.App. 1990) In addition, force cannot be used to punish or to retaliate for past harm or past injury, such as a sexual assault in the past. See State v. Reid, 747 P.2d 560 (Ariz. 1987). [1].  A shoot-on-sight order would be unlawful unless the order was within the guidelines established by the U.S. Supreme Court and state courts for the use of force in self-defense, in the defense of another, or when force can lawfully be used to stop a fleeing felon. In the Ruby Ridge siege, deadly force was used to kill a fleeing 14-year-old boy and an unarmed woman. A minority of states hold that a duty to retreat exists before deadly force can be used against another co-occupant of a home (such as a spouse, live-in, or family member).
