What are the crimes of cause and result.
Crimes of cause and result are also known as specific intent crimes, which means that the person had to bring about the specific result of the crime that they are charged with, i.e. that the result is foreseeable by the actor and is also the desired result of him. Specific intent crimes include first-degree murder and all inchoate crimes (attempted robbery, attempted murder, etc.).
