A wish or expectancy that an act will have a certain result (regardless of the actual
likelihood of such a result).
The presence of will in the commission of a criminal act where the individual is fully
aware of the nature and probable consequences of the act that he or she plans to commit.
This applies whether the individual desires that such consequences occur or is indifferent
as to their occurrence.
Seldom intent is established by direct proof, but must be inferred from facts.
