Frequently Asked Questions

QUESTION: Is it possible to be prosecuted for an attempt to commit a crime?

Contact a Iowa criminal defense ( federal / probation / parole / possession / white collar) lawyer representing clients in Ames, Iowa today to schedule your initial consultation.


ANSWER

There are statutes in many jurisdictions which make the attempt of crimes like robbery or murder a crime. These statutes are intended to punish individuals who have demonstrated the intent to commit a crime, regardless of whether that crime occurred. Conviction for an attempted crime requires the government to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the person charged had the intent to commit the crime or create a situation that would amount to that crime, and that the person took steps beyond merely preparing to commit the crime.
