The mission which was made by my friend and me was to rob the bank. He decided that he will get a gun and I will borrow a car for the crime. I went into the bank to attempt the robbery in this case, but it is not be considered as a criminal attempt because I just got prepared for the crime and purchased material for it but didn't commit a crime in this case (Criminal Attempt, n.d).
No, I have not committed attempted bank robbery in this case because I just went into the bank and changed my plan after meeting the teller. According to a criminal attempt, a crime is incomplete if the defendant fails to complete the crime after taking steps or change their mind after taking steps to commit a crime (Criminal Attempt, n.d).
No, I have not committed any other crimes and neither my friend because we just made a plan to rob the bank because I needed the money. My friend was just there to help me, and he was not part of the attempt which I tried alone in the bank, so we both have not committed any crime in this scenario and never attempted to commit any other crime before (Criminal Attempt, n.d).
My friend doesn't qualify for the defense in this case because he just helped me by getting a gun for me. However, I qualified for the defense because I tried to commit a crime although I changed my decision at the time of the crime. The defense which applies to me, in this case, is “Abandonment and Withdrawal” because such defend arises when a defendant declares that he or she has never completed a crime. I abandoned my plan in this situation which means I have to prove to that how I withdraw from the current crime.
