- Rules of Law:
- Transferred Intent: the state of mind a person has when about to commit a crime upon one person is equally applicable when the intended act affects another person.
General Rules: Makes one whole crime if there are only two halves.
Does not multiply criminal liability
- Test: Is the crime complete?
Yes>> Stop. Intent can’t be transferred.
No>>Then transfer intent against unharmed intended target to unintended victim who suffered harm.
Concurrent Intent: intent for the crime applies to all victims despite an intent to target only one victim if the act is calculated to harm all within a “kill zone.”
