Virginia Unlawful Wounding Charges
To prove unlawful wounding charges, the government must prove that a person intended to cause an injury, such as a breaking of the skin or a bruise, and that they had no legal justification to cause such injury. The difference between a felony unlawful wounding charge and an assault in Virginia is the intent to cause a permanent and serious injury and the extent and presence of the injury to the alleged victim.
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 events, an experienced lawyer can evaluate the evidence against you and present it in the best light possible for you. The witnesses 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.
