Chapter 8


3. Baker and others entered a Wal-Mart store shortly after 3:00 A.M. by cutting through the metal door with an acetylene torch. They had moved some of the merchandise in the store to the rear door, but the police arrived before the merchandise could be taken from the store. Baker was prosecuted for larceny. He raised the defense that he was not guilty of larceny because no merchandise had ever left the store. Is there enough intent and action for a crime? [Tennessee v. Baker, 751 S.W.2d 154 (Tenn.

He was not injured but suffered great emotional shock. He sued Barberton to recover damages for this shock.
