    hello guys,reallly suffering with this question.please provide me some points to solve this quesstion correctly...thx alott ..cheers

    Urma entered a shop to buy a present for her mum. Whilst in the shop she noticed that an accountant had left the staff room door unlocked whilst she went to the toilet. Urma could see some money in piles on the table. She went into the staffroom and was just about to take the money when she was caught by another member of staff.

    Discuss whether Urma committed any offences

    The name Urma sounds Polish to me....
    So I'd replace the money with our jobs, then I'd say yes.
    she did commit an offence.

    Entered a building or part of a building as a trespasser which is part of the AR of burglary the staff room she wouldn't be allowed in so is a trespasser (Walkington). did she steal or attempt to steal - yes. Depends upon her mens rea at the time of entering the room if she has committed any offence (i think) and this is hard to prove.

    I love these sort of questions.

    First of all I think should would be charged with burglary S 9(1)(b).

    She didn't intially intend to tresspass or steal but while in the shop once she went through the staff does she had tresspassed, she obviously also showed intention to go and steal the money at this point as it says in the scenario.

    Now for s9 (1)(b) the person does not actually have to steal, just attempting to steal is enough to fufill the actus reus.

    So Urma would be convicted of section 9(1)(b).

    (This is all knowledge from 6-7 months ago so dont copy if this is for a assigment or something lol)
