Crime, Felonies, and Misdemeanor

The crimes that the call center employees may be charged with include the following: 1) Attempt to commit a non-violent offense, which is a misdemeanor; 2) Attempted robbery, which is a felony (Wikipedia, 2007). Considering the case of the employees, the elements for the crime for the attempt to commit a non-violent offense which is a misdemeanor include the following: 1) The three employees should be observed of having all the intention “to commit any other offense except for a crime of violence” (The.. , n. d. ).

This is evidenced by the fact that they “planned to steal money by falsifying invoices”; 2) The three employees did something that may result in the accomplishment of the crime or their acts almost completed the crime (The.. , n. d. ). This is evidenced by the fact that they were able to “break into the call center and take the computer technology that will help them falsify the invoices” (The.. , n. d. ). Meanwhile, considering the case of the employees, the elements for the crime attempted robbery, which is a felony include the following: 1) The defendant/s did something “reasonably designed to commit the crime of robbery” (The.., n. d. ).

In this case, the three “planned to steal money by falsifying invoices”; 2) The defendants “during that time the act was committed, he or she acted with the specific intent to commit a robbery” (The.. , n. d. ). The fact that it was carefully planned then there was an intention to rob; 3) The defendants organized their act to the point of almost finishing the crime (The.. , n. d. ). This is evidenced by the fact that they were able to “break into the call center and take the computer technology that will help them falsify the invoices” (The.. , n. d. ).

On the other hand, intentional torts include the following: 1) assault or an act wherein a person becomes fearful because he or she has been threatened or harmed; 2) battery or an act wherein “unlawful & unprivileged touching” has been carried out; 3) trespass or an unjust damage or intrusion with another’s possessions; 4) nuisance or “anything that interferes with another’s enjoyment of property”; 5) “interference with contract” or to deliberately cause someone to enter or break into a contract with somebody; 6) “deceit” or stating something which is false or an act carried out to deliberately hurt another person; 7) “conversion” or taking someone else’s property without asking permission; 8) “false imprisonment” or illegally detaining a person; 9) “defamation” or attacking somebody else’s reputation by stating things wrongly.

10) “invasion of privacy” or not allowing a person to be left alone; 11) “misuse of legal procedure or bringing of legal action with malice and without probable cause” ; as well as 12) “infliction of emotional distress” or deliberately making one suffer mentally or emotionally (The Law.. , n. d. ).
