@kornboi I didn't even notice it was 2 years ago LOL (and here I am already forgetting what was the context even though it was just last night). I'd say this is one of those grey area where it will be decided by the judge. She might be charged with attempted murder and end up being true, or end up getting convicted of another crime, or even not guilty.

@Triparadox geez I had to reread this 2 year-old chapter to remember the context.
Thank you for clarifying what seems to be the American legal system? But did you not read the chapter?
His argument is she didn't commit/attempt murder because the victim was already dead. He even said she didn't intend to damage the corpse - because she was unaware he was dead. So clearly she stabbed him thinking he was alive. How is that not considered a crime?

"is attempted murder not considered a crime? and if it is considered a crime, is impossibility an adequate defense?"

Attempted murder is a crime.
Manslaughter is a crime.
First degree murder is a voluntary killing with intent and malice.
Second degree murder is voluntary killing without the element of design (the defendant does not plan to kill).
Third degree murder is involuntary killing without the element of design (the defendant does not plan to kill nor he has the immediate knowledge that doing a certain act may result in a death of a person).

oh wow, never thought I'd take an interest in another country's legal system when I don't even understand my own. I know Japan's system is based on civil law, but I've got two questions: is attempted murder not considered a crime? and if it is considered a crime, is impossibility an adequate defense?

Will this slave merchant/weapon monger/not-princess villain get his punishment? With so few chapters remaining, I don't think the author will do the plot justice.

@HOOfan_1 You see, this is the main problem with the whole setting. While they took most of Japanese laws, they for some weird reason left the constitution out. And boy, without constitution the whole thing is like a body without a skeleton.

great as allways but falls short of ace attorney's brilliance. a shame really. also not digging the whole underage bs. i'm fairly convinced this lawyer should be penalized for his dirty thoughts promptly.

Aren't there slaves in this society? If they are using Japanese law, slavery would be abolished, and the entire everyone would be equal under the law. That noble would be prosecuted for his crimes against the maids, and the maids wouldn't face harsher penalties just because they committed a crime against a noble.

All this could've been averted if the coroner did his job.

Still its quite complicated.Well 'try reading about the difference manslaughter and murder. It's both killing a man but there is difference (manslaughter is when you kill a man but had no malice - no will to kill him, by accident). Her case is so wierd and would be considered quite hard. As there was malice from her to kill the guy but not in the way she did. So she did want the guy to die but did not want to kill him with this sleeping potion.

Nope mate. It depends on the criminal law in country but normaly if the subject of the crime does not exist then you can't treat it as commiting that crime. Let me use an easy example:

You can't steal your own money :)
You cannot be sentenced for battery/assault if the only thing you did was hitting sandbag with a picture of your most hated person. Its not really that person.
So you cannot be charged with killing person who already died. Like the MC said it can be a diffrent crime of desecrating corpse or simmilar.

Plus this is just a manga that omits many of important parts of law. Treat it the same way as you treat those silly games of Phoenix Wright (ace attorney). Its just entertainment. It would be too complicated otherwise and not as flashy.

So there's no "intended assault with a deadly weapon" or anything?
