  Attempt - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The essence of the crime of attempt is that the defendant has failed to commit the actus reus (the Latin term for the "guilty act") of the full offence, but has the direct and specific intent to commit that full offence.
Whether the actus reus of an attempt has occurred is a question of common sense fact for the jury to decide having heard the directions as to law from the judge.
It is not possible to attempt the other inchoate offences of conspiracy, or aiding, abetting, counseling or procuring an offence because the defendant would be too remote from the full offence.

 Attempt - LoveToKnow 1911
An attempt must proceed beyond mere preparation, but at the same time it must fall short of the ultimate purpose in any part of it.
The actual point, however, at which an act ceases to be an attempt, and becomes criminal, depends upon the circumstances of each particular case.
A person may be guilty of an attempt to commit a crime, even if its commission in the manner proposed was impossible.

 Criminal Resource Manual 2480 Attempt to aid and abet
If, for example, a principal pretends to commit a crime, and the accomplice attempts to aid the principal by engaging in conduct that would have established his complicity had the crime been committed, the accomplice may also be charged with an attempt to commit the crime.
Thus, the prosecution must show that the defendant acted with the kind of culpability otherwise required for the commission of the crime which he is charged with attempting, and that he or she engaged in conduct which constitutes a substantial step toward the commission of the crime.
As with other attempt crimes, permitting convictions on the basis of the "attempt to aid and abet" theory is justified because, even if an offense was not actually committed, the defendant manifests the same dangerousness of character as the actor who himself attempts to commit the offense.

 Criminal Tax Manual 8.00 -- ATTEMPT TO EVADE OR DEFEAT TAX
As in an attempt to evade and defeat a tax through evasion of assessment, it must be established in an evasion of payment case that the taxpayer took some affirmative action.
Historically, it is the crime of willfully attempting to evade and defeat a tax through evasion of assessment, as opposed to willfully attempting to evade the payment of a tax, that is the principal revenue offense.
It is enough to prove that the defendant attempted to evade a substantial income tax, even though the actual amount of tax that he owes may be greater than the amount charged in the criminal case.

Attempts can include attempted murder, attempted robbery, attempted rape, attempted forgery, attempted arson, and a host of other crimes.
The attempt becomes a crime in itself, and usually means one really tried to commit the crime, but failed through no fault of himself or herself.
One defendant claimed he could not attempt rape in an old Model A coupe because it was too cramped to make the act possible.

 "Attempt An Act" Defined
An attempt to commit a crime, is an endeavor to accomplish it, carried beyond mere preparation, but falling short of execution of the ultimate design, in any part of it.
Between preparations and attempts to commit a crime, the distinction is in many cases, very indeterminate.
An attempt to commit a crime is a misdemeanor; and an attempt to commit a misdemeanor, is itself a misdemeanor.

 SSRN-Attempt, Reckless Homicide, and the Structure of Criminal Law by Michael Cahill
This article explores the relation between reckless homicide and attempt, which proves more complex than it appears and also turns out to provide a useful starting point for examination of several broader issues in attempt law and criminal law generally.
The idea of "attempted reckless homicide" ("ARH") is largely disfavored by legal scholars and almost, but not quite, universally rejected in American law.
The idea of writing a single attempt provision expansively covering any conduct that risks, but does not create, a criminal harm seems rooted in a sense that criminal law works best by establishing relatively few general rules of broad application.

Derek Whitacre is the architect of The Moscow Coup Attempt and the delightfully cryptic new cd The Failure of Shortwave Radio which incorporates and weaves samples of shortwave numbers stations throughout blissful washes of melody.
The title is somewhat poignant for me as a shortwave radio listener who has witnessed the landslide of shortwave stations discontinuing their broadcasts to North America over the past five years including the BBC, and RVI from Flanders.
Is strange how The Moscow Coup Attempt music recalled me a sort of electronic / orchestral version of the last Slint record but Derek's capacity of writing tracks that are always in balance between the song structure and the soundtrack composition made me thought about Slint's way of building guitar layers.

Today, the attempt to write a constitution proceeds fitfully; on Thursday, Shiites and Sunnis reached a compromise that may allow the Iraqi National Assembly to meet its Aug. 15 deadline.
There is an elected government, though it is supposed to be replaced after the constitution is written.
