R v Robinson [1952] 2 All ER 334


R kept jewels in safe. Tied himself up and was going to say store was robbed. Was taking preparatory steps of fraud


Can R be accused of attempting to obtain money in false pretence even though he had not gotten to the state of making a false statement?


Proximity theory - a person must have taken more than preparatory steps.
Acts remotely leading towards the commission of the offence are not to be considered attempts – but acts immediately connected with it are.
