Concurrence, Causation, and Harm
As was briefly mentioned above, some crimes only require the guilty act, the criminal intent, and the concurrence between the two. We will delve deeper into what concurrence means in this Section. We will also consider more complex crimes that require that some specified harm result from the defendant’s actions before the elements of the crime are satisfied. When there is a harm, the additional element of causation must be considered.
