    In just need help on the mens rea I know this is a specific intent crime
    But I just want someone to go over and check that I'm
    Doing it

    For the AR for CD/theft/GBH I'll refer to
    S1.1 and s.1(2) if the crimjnak attempt act and add some case law stating why the act was than merely preparatory. For example Boyce v Boyce & R&B shivpuri etc.

    Then I'll move in the mens rea if it was Attempted GBH I'll do purpose intention( r v stean) or indirect (r v woolin) virtual certainity test.

    If the attempted crime was Criminal damage I would do purpose intent again r v steane intention as to ones actions causing damage to ones property. And having intention to damage and destroy property chandler v dpp.

    If te attempted offence was theft
    I would do intention to permanently deprive chandler v dpp or r v stean. The. I'll do r v ghost dishonesty. Add the lawful accuse if it applies under this section 2(1)a,b, or c.
