premeditation in a sentence 10 out of 10 based on 7 ratings.

use premeditation in a sentence.

Murder almost always is defined to include premeditation (malice aforethought).

It comes up in criminal cases all the time -- when you're googling "age of consent laws" or "how to dispose of a dead body" it's pretty easy to establish premeditation, though that doesn't help with 'pre-crime'.

So I suppose you believe that a somone who killed another person unintentionally and by accident should be punished just the same as someone who killed another person deliberately and with a lot of premeditation.

I've thought through similar scenarios multiple times, and then when I am about to post any of them online, I realize my post would probably be read by any competent investigator and it would be turned into an additional premeditation-based charge.

So the argument Samsung makes is that the Jury foreman manipulated the process with intent and premeditation and that tainted the process.

Just a sampling: (a) it takes "malice aforethought" or premeditation to support higher degrees of a murder conviction; (b) one must act with "scienter" (intent or knowledge of wrongdoing) to be held liable for various intentional torts such as fraud; (c) punitive damages may be awarded to punish a wrongdoer for conduct that is outrageous or wanton or done in reckless disregard of the rights of others.
