Virginia Malicious Wounding Charges
To prove malicious wounding charges, the government must prove that you intended to cause an injury, such as a breaking of the skin or a bruise, and that your intent was malicious. 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 a malicious wounding charge and an unlawful wounding charge is the existence of malice.
Typically, the prosecutor would use pictures, medical records and testimony of witnesses, including the alleged victim, to try to prove the charge of malicious wounding beyond a reasonable doubt. The prosecutor will also use any statements that you made to the police, or to other people, against you. Lawyers Alex Gordon and Carlos Wall can evaluate the evidence against you and present it in the best light possible for you. The stories told by the witnesses may not be consistent. Also witness 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 to malicious wounding charges available as well, such as self-defense or that both people were involved in mutual combat.
