Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Mark E. Stephens, District Public Defender, and Christina Kleiser, Assistant Public Defender, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Juanita W.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General & Reporter, and John H. Bledsoe, Senior Counsel, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): SWINEY

Juanita W. (“the Juvenile”) appeals an order of the Criminal Court for Knox County (“the Criminal Court”) finding her delinquent by committing the act of aggravated assault pursuant to Tenn. Code Ann. § 39-13-102(a)(1)(B). We find and hold that the required element of bodily injury was not proven, and we, therefore, reverse the Criminal Court’s order finding the Juvenile delinquent and dismiss the case.
