Abstract: Historically, intentional interference with the person was dealt with both civilly and criminally through the writ of trespass. Although the link between tort and crime continues so that conduct which amounts to an intentional tort may also constitute a crime, the term 'trespass to the person' refers today to the civil claims of battery, assault and false imprisonment. There may also be a limited, residual category of intentional acts causing harm of which the case of 'Wilkinson v Downton' is representative.
