Others may commit accounting fraud to complete loan applications. A well-known accounting fraud example is Enron.

1. Before I discuss the Shaw case, it might first be helpful to talk a bit about the idea of "intent" or “mens rea.” Unless you are in the legal profession, this Latin term may not mean much to you, but in the world of criminal law it is a very important concept. Translated, mens rea means "guilty mind," and it refers to the mental state of a person who is accused of a crime. Almost all crimes require the prosecution show not only that an act was committed, but that the person accused of the act did so with a particular intent or knowledge. In the case of a simple theft, for example, the prosecution typically needs to prove that the accused took the property of another person and intended to permanently deprive the owner of the property. So, while a person may have walked out of a jewelry store with a necklace in their pocket, if someone else had placed that necklace in their pocket without their knowledge, the person likely would not have the required mens rea to commit a crime. In te...
