In order to make sure I’m not breaking any laws, I contact my attorney to ask whether what I’m planning to do is legal. She writes back to advise that shooting in my backyard is lawful as long as I shoot between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. and as long as the spot where I shoot from is at least 100 feet from the nearest house. The distance to nearest house appears to be about 600 feet, so I conclude that I have more than enough space to shoot lawfully. While I’m shooting one day around noon, a police officer walks up and looks through a strange device at my neighbor’s house. He then charges me with unlawful discharge of a firearm. A county ordinance that I didn’t know about makes it a misdemeanor to knowingly discharge a firearm within 500 feet of a house. His range finder just told him that the neighbor’s house is only 480 feet away. Which of the following is a TRUE statement under the Model Penal Code?
Question 2 7 out of 7 points Mr. Rogers believes, wrongly, that there is a statute that makes it a crime to watch an R rated movie over the internet. Rogers decides that the government should not be able to restrict what people watch over the Internet. Therefore, as an act of civil disobedience, he deliberately watches an R rated movie over the internet. Rogers then calls the police, and reports himself as having committed the crime of watching an R rated movie over the internet. Is Rogers guilty of an attempt crime?
