B gave letters to young boy. He wanted to have sex with him. He met up with him/=. Impossible to commit offence because detective showed up
Was the conduct of B enough to show that he did or omitted an act for the purpose of accomplishing his objective?
An act done with the intent to commit a crime is not a criminal attempt unless it is of such a nature as to be in itself sufficient evidence of the criminal intent with which it is done.
Unequivocal act theory – what matters is have they taken steps that clearly indicated they were going to commit the offence.
The acts of the accused did not constitute an attempt
