    Does anyone know if for criminal damage does 'lawful excuse' apply for aggravated criminal damage, arson & basic or just basic criminal damage


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    I'm not a 100% sure but I think that 'lawful excuse' only applies for basic criminal damage because I wrote that as part of an answer we did in class on a problem scenario where a neighbour had to put out a fire whilst the people next door were out and so in trying to do so got one of their neighbours clothes or something which was drying on the washing line to put it out and so they had a "lawful excuse" but the "lawful excuse" will only work and stand if a person is trying to save property and not a person which sounds stupid but that is how it works.

    Hope this helps.

    Considering Justice has been on every single paper, I would say its possible to predict it could come up again. Or not.

    As for fault or morality, they seem to oscilate, so I would say morality as Fault came up last year. I haven't learned the other areas so haven't really looked at them to see where they fit in.

    But there really aren't enough papers or questions to make any sort of prediction.

    Ye man TSR does that to you, I'd seriously though revise fault briefly because I think your teacher has been stupid only covering two! Luckily I need a D in this exam to get a B overall which I'm happy with.

    Could someone please explain to me the difference between 'inflicting GBH' and 'Do unlawful harm' as the Actus Reus, under Section 9.1.A for Burglary, and please give an example.

    Is it basically a section 20/18 offence and a section 47 offence respectively?

    'do unlawful harm' is criminal damage, so it would be breaking into a building/ having entered a building as a trespasser and then committing unlawful damage (criminal damage) and 'inflicting GBH' is basically the s20/s18 but you don't need to have studied assaults to write this paper so it would just be inflicting serious injury onto someone after breaking into a building/ or having entered a building as a trespasser.

    Hope this helps.

    You're quite right, its impossible only to learn one and hope it comes up. Well, not impossible, just very very risky. Although Justice has been on every single paper in the syllabus....
    So what do you think will come up?

    Lawful excuse cannot apply to any offence starting with "aggravated"... This is because "aggravated " means where somebody's life is endangered and no once can have a lawful excuse for endangering someones life.
    Hope that helps xxx
