C
Of Punishments In General

In certain cases it may happen that the same
individual act shall come under two heads of delinquency

No offender is to be punished taken more than once for the
same offence.(a)

[(a) Same offence.] Although an act should be referable
to two different heads or species of delinquency, this does not
render the offender punishable for two different offences,
so long as the individual act consider'd with a view to its consequence is but one and the same.
But if from one and the same act there result two sets of consequences,
one of which brings it under the description
of one head of delinquency, and another under
another, it is to may be consider'd as two offences,
and the offender is to be punished as for both.

Thus In order to remove the evidence of the a
right you have respecting a piece of land, a man
receives takes away a thing placed to answer the
purpose of a land-mark. Consider If his design was
to have merely to deprive you of the right in question
without caring to whom else it fell, or whether to
any body, the offence is a thus according to circumstances an aggravated case
either of wrought divestment of property, or of the
attempt thereto belonging: if his design was to acquire
for himself or transfer to another the right you would be
deprived
