    Hey there I read in my text books that s.3 and s. 1 of the sexual offences act are one of basic intent crimes. But what I don't understand is that this requires intent not recklessness.

    Can someone explain?

    As I remember it (and I have never studied law), basic intent can involve either intent to commit the crime or recklessness as to whether the act is a crime, with no ulterior intent. The point is that these crimes are not ones of specific intent, unlike a crime designated as aggravated, say, where the intent goes beyond the act.
