Aggravated Malicious Wounding Charges
To prove aggravated malicious wounding charges, the government must prove that you maliciously intended to cause a permanent injury, and that this injury is permanent and causes significant impairment. Malice is defined as the doing of a wrongful act intentionally, or without just cause or excuse, or as a result of ill will. The difference between an aggravated malicious wounding charge and an malicious wounding charge is the extent and severity of the injury.
Typically, the prosecutor would use pictures, medical records and testimony of witnesses, including the alleged victim, to try to prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt. The prosecutor will also use any statements that you made to the police, or to other people, against you. Because cases resulting in these charges can be chaotic and emotional events, an experienced lawyer can evaluate the evidence against you and present it in the best light possible for you. The witnesses to the alleged assault may not be consistent, and their testimony may not be consistent with the physical evidence. Carlos Wall and Alex Gordon can use these inconsistencies to effectively develop a defense for you. There are other defenses available as well, such as self-defense to the charge of Aggravated Malicious Wounding.
