HI,
 
For my Crim. Law final, our professor basically said that spotting an issue, in essay questions, will be worth half of the points and analysis will be for half of the points. I've been trying to think of issues that may be commonly overlooked because they are quite insignificant in relation to the main issue. (Ex. Trespass when burglary (not really sneaky, just saying) or Armed Criminal Action/Unlawful Use of Weapon if someone is using a non-traditional weapon).
It's a pretty broad question, but I'd figure I'd throw it out there for people that are more intelligent than me. If there's even one issue I overlook, and it has 2 degrees, then I would be missing out on a point for spotting each degree and analyzing it. Anyways, figured I'd see if anyone else had any thoughts about an issue that they overlooked in Crim. Law or even suggestions for taking an exam where analysis seems rather insignificant (which seems odd to me).
I might as well post the list of possible crimes we've gone over too. Maybe it will help refresh someone's memory:
Disclaimer: These our offenses for the statutes of our state, not MPC or Common Law. However, most of the elements are fairly similar.
 
Any help will be apprecited.
 
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
