  •  Except there are plenty of people succesfully (0+ / 0-)

    prosecuted for crimes who did not have the intent of committing a crime. For instance, people who drive borderline intoxicated (thinking that they are perfectly sober) and getting into accidents- there's no intent, but that doesn't stop them from being prosecuted.

      Crimes without intent are always minor offenses.

      In DUI, the intent is that you got behind the wheel knowing you'd been drinking.  You may have been mistaken as to your BAC, but you still knew you had been drinking and drove.  Intent is there.

      In the unlikely story that is America, there has never been anything false about hope.
