Seen Case Study

Lady Penelope, the owner of Chuggington Manor, has been harassed for several months by Hugh, a disgruntled former employee. Initially, Hugh sent offensive letters to Lady Penelope, but recently he has also taken to making silent phone calls. Lady Penelope has suffered from severe anxiety as a result of Hugh’s campaign of harassment.
On one occasion, Hugh visited the Manor on a day that it was open to the public. While there, Hugh took a photo album belonging to Lady Penelope. He hid the album in his rucksack, hoping to copy the photos and return them. He also picked up an ornament, intending to steal it, but was spotted by Eli, a security guard, and asked to leave the property. Hugh smashed the ornament over Eli’s head and ran out of the property. Eli started to bleed profusely, and an ambulance was called for him. On his arrival at hospital, Eli needed a blood transfusion but refused treatment due to a phobia of needles. He died as a consequence.
Meanwhile, Robert, who worked as a gardener in the grounds of the Manor, saw Hugh fleeing from the house. He chased after Hugh, but fell on his rake, sustaining a nasty gash to his leg. Hugh stopped running, picked up Robert’s chainsaw and started it, intending to chop off Robert’s head, when he was tackled to the ground by several members of the public.
Greg, a junior house doctor, working in an Accident and Emergency department of a local hospital, turned up drunk to work on the day that Robert was brought in for treatment on the gash on his leg. Greg injected Robert with a lethal dose of diamorphine, and Robert died as a result.

Except for sexual offences, I think that covers the whole syllabus.

Looking at things like assault, the case of R v Ireland.

Theft. Run through the actus reus/mens rea for theft/use cases.

This is likely to be manslaughter. Use the thin skull rule and look at R v Blaue. It may possibly be murder, but it'll be down to the jury to infer whether they felt he intended to cause grievous bodily harm/death..

Goes into manslaughter, most likely to be gross negligence manslaughter (R v Adomako)

Is this stuff going to be in your exam? (i.e stuff you've already ​seen)?
