Multiple Criminal Acts
A single criminal goal may be effected by multiple criminal acts, and those multiple criminal acts may be separate and distinct offenses.
See State v. Fuller, 168 Vt. 396, 399, 721 A.2d 475, 479 (1998) (holding that multiple sexual assaults were not one continuous event but rather separate crimes).
See also Jordan v. State, 242 Ga. App. (where victim was robbed at gunpoint, briefly escaped but was grabbed and beaten to prevent escape, offenses of kidnapping and attempted armed robbery "were two separate, distinct, and sequential crimes against the victim.").
