MPC - Conduct, Circumstances, Result

Postby UndecidedMN » Fri May 03, 2013 5:06 pm

Hi,

I am having a tough time just keeping it straight in my head what circumstances mean in the MPC. In other words, I know figuratively that circumstances are everything that are not conduct or result elements. But can you give me an actually example of what a circumstance is in the MPC and what it means?

Thanks

Statutory rape: The circumstance is that one party was a minor, which makes the conduct illegal when it wouldn't have been otherwise.
Bigamy: The circumstance is that one person was already married.
Public nudity: Being naked isn't itself a crime, but the attendant circumstance is "in a public place."

The wiki article gives some decent discussion and examples: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Attendant_circumstance
