R v Pembliton (1874) LR 2CCR 119

The defendant threw some stones into a crowd of people. He wanted to disperse the crowd. A stone hit and smashed a window. He was convicted of criminal damage and appealed.


Conviction quashed. His mens rea for an offence against the person could not be transferred to a property offence as they are entirely different offences.
