Example text

V sustained serious injury in the fall and D was convicted of inflicting grievous bodily harm (see Chapter 8). On appeal, D claimed that V’s response was unreasonable but the Court of Appeal upheld the conviction. The reasonable person could have foreseen V’s reaction in attempting to escape as a possible consequence of D’s actions. The decision, then, rests with the jury to assess whether the victim’s responses to the perceived threat were reasonable and foreseeable in the circumstances, taking into account that V may well have been frightened at the time.

In this case, D is not guilty of murder, but he would be convicted of attempted murder instead. This is, in fact, exactly what happened in White (1910). 4 Actus reus and mens rea Causation As indicated above, to be guilty of murder, D must ‘cause death’. This is an example of one aspect of the actus reus, ‘causation’. Causation must be established for nearly all offences but it so happens that the crime of murder provides the best illustrations of the operation of the principles involved. Whether D’s acts or omissions actually caused V’s death is always for the jury to decide.

Mellor (1996) V, a 71-year-old man, was attacked by a gang of hooligans, including D, late one winter’s evening. He was taken to hospital suffering facial bruising and complaining of chest pain. He died in hospital two days later. D tried to avoid liability by claiming that the hospital had failed to give V sufficient oxygen in time, as a result of which he had developed pneumonia, which was the medical cause of death. But D was convicted of manslaughter and the Court of Appeal upheld the conviction.
