"Purposely entered at night."
It depends on whether you parse the law as
purposely (entered at night) or (purposely
entered) at night. That is, did the guy know that
he entered, and know it was at night, or did he
know that he entered, and it was at night
(whether he knew that or not). The joys of
statutory construction. And I suppose an argument
could be made that "purposely" implies
something more than mere knowledge, that it might
even require that he made a conscious choice to
enter at night rather than during the day.
My thoughts exactly. Unfortunately, that suggests to me
that the answer was likely one of the OTHER
possibilities, and I missed the question completely.
