This chapter examines the punishment or sentencing of a defendant convicted of a criminal attempt. Neither the American Model Penal Code nor the 1981 Act of Great Britain give the mere fact of failure in a criminal attempt significance in sentencing. The chapter examines the varieties of failure and the resulting harm issue and discusses their implications for sentencing.
