Judgement for the case R v Mohan

D drove his car quickly when a policeman ordered him to stop. The car almost hit the policeman and D was charged with attempted ABH against the policeman. The judge directed that D had to have been at least reckless that ABH would be caused. CA allowed appeal against D’s conviction since in attempted crimes it had to be proved that D intended the crime regardless of normal rules of mens rea.
