Assault with Intent to Commit GBH less than Murder

Defended against By Experienced Assault Attorneys in Michigan

Assault with intent to commit great bodily harm (GBH) less than murder is a felony. The prosecutor must prove the following beyond a reasonable doubt: The defendant attempted to physically injure another person; at the time, the defendant had the ability to cause the injury (or the plaintiff believed the defendant had that ability); and the defendant intended to cause great bodily harm. Actual harm is not necessary to prove this offense.

A great bodily harm injury is one that caused impairment of a body function or internal injury, multiple puncture wounds, poisoning, serious burns, or severe cuts. This form of assault can result in up to 10 years in prison and a 5,000 fine. There are a number of possible defenses to assault with the intent to do GBH, including self-defense/protection or defense of others, consent, accident, lack of intent, and reasonable doubt.

Although my case was unique, having been on the lam for sixteen years, Mr. Morris was able to prove that the lack of evidence was detrimental to the prosecution and all charges were dismissed. Mr. Morris happened to be the second lawyer that I contacted. The first lawyer said he would take my case for a $10K retainer fee and that I had a long road ahead of me. The next day, I contacted Mr. Morris and knew from our first conversation that I was in good hands with his representation. Stop shopping around and hire Barton Morris today!
