    In basic terms, it's when the defendant has the intention to commit a crime, however, due to some circumstances, later decides not to. The potential crime is conditional on the preference of the defendant or unforeseen circumstances.

    For example, in the case of Easom, the defendant took another women's bag in the cinema and rummaged through it - looking for something to steal. However, he found that there was nothing worth stealing, or nothing he wanted to steal so he put it back without stealing anything. That's conditional intent.
