[sub]Note to mods: I put this in GD rather than CS because I’m only using the show in question to explain.[/sub]
After last night’s CSI, roommate and I were talking, and she said that she didn’t think the woman in the first case (relax) was guilty of anything.
Basically, the woman and an accomplice attempted to set her husband up for attempted murder via car bomb. The CSI team did its thing and determined she was the “guilty” party.
So, is there a crime here? The husband was not charged with anything, no one was hurt, and the only damage was to the woman’s BMW (her own property).
If I were to try and set my roommate up for murder, but she were cleared of guilt, no one was hurt and my complicity in the case were proven, would I be up on charges?
Wouldn’t this be prosecuting simply for intent, and not for action?
