The following Corporate Crime guidance note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
Offences requiring specific intent are of two kinds:
where the mental element of the offence requires a purposive intent rather than recklessness, eg murder requires an intent to kill or do grievous bodily harm,
where the offence is one of intent to do something beyond the act forming the offence (sometimes referred to as ‘ulterior intent’)
Where an offence may be committed intentionally or recklessly, it is an offence of basic intent.
wounding with intent
any attempt to commit an offence
handling stolen goods, and
destroying or damaging property intending to destroy or damage property
assaults which do not require specific intent
