Criminal Law: Assault-Sufficiency of Evidence

Staff Report//March 11, 2020//

Listen to this article

Where a defendant, who fired one shot at a vehicle containing three passengers, argued that the evidence did not show that he intended to cause harm to all three passengers, the evidence was sufficient to support the convictions for three counts of second-degree assault and three counts of armed criminal action, so the judgment is affirmed, but the matter is remanded for the correction of a clerical error.

Judgment is affirmed; remanded.

State v. Garrett (MLW No. 74627/Case No. ED106966 – 8 pages) (Missouri Court of Appeals, Eastern District, Gaertner Jr., J.) Appealed from circuit court, Lincoln County, Frawley, J. (Katharine P. Curry for appellant) (Kristen S. Johnson for respondent).
