Intentionally Law and Legal Definition

Intentionally means done deliberately. A person acts intentionally with respect to a result or to a conduct described by a statute defining an offense when his/her conscious objective is to cause that result or to engage in that conduct.

The following is an example of a case law on intentionally:

Intentionally means willfully or purposely, and not accidentally or involuntarily. An individual's intent to kill is a question of fact and may be inferred from deliberate use of a deadly weapon in a manner reasonably likely to cause death. [State v. Perry, 1996 Neb. App. LEXIS 49 (Neb. Ct. App. 1996)].
