Two friends entered a bar looking to get money to pay off a loan shark, but with no plan how to do so. They struck up conversations with two women. The first friend left the bar, having induced one of the women to return home with him. Once in his house, the first friend told the woman that she would not be allowed to leave unless she gave him all of her money. Fearing for her safety, the woman gave him all of the cash she had in her possession. Meanwhile, the second friend remaining at the bar noticed that the other woman left her credit card on the counter. When the woman looked away, the friend picked up the credit card and put it into his pocket. Shortly thereafter, the woman realized her card was gone and accused the man of taking it. The man pretended to be insulted, slapped the victim, and went off with the credit card in his pocket.
Which of the two friends can be convicted for common law robbery?CorrectIncorrect
The defendant drove up to a fast food restaurant, and when she reached the window she stated, “There is a man on the roof next door, he can see everything and if you don’t do what I say, he will shoot you. Put all the money from the register in the sack, as well as two cheeseburgers and fries.” The clerk did not see anyone, but was still frightened, so put the money and food in the bag. The defendant drove off with the money, and was subsequently arrested, and admitted that she lied about the man with the rifle, and actually acted alone.
What crime or crimes may she be convicted of?CorrectIncorrect
