- Q. If someone is unconscious can they be criminally charged for assault?
- A: The law requires the State to prove that the person charged "intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly causes bodily injury to another..." Based on what you have presented - it sounds like the State may have a difficult task of proving the required mens rea. This does not mean the the person cannot be charged with the offense - but getting beyond a reasonable doubt is another issue all together. So to specifically answer the question, yes, a person can be charged criminally if the state doesn't believe the person tazed was unconscious when he or she head butted the EMS worker.
- Q. Court ordered drug test at probation office
- A: They are used to make sure you are following the conditions of release or conditions of probation. There are two possibilities here: First, if you have a pending charge the court can place any reasonable conditions on you while you are out on bond. The court can order drug tests and if you test positive the court can revoke your bond and put you back in jail. Second, if you are on probation, your conditions of probation usually include no drugs or alcohol. The court can ask you to be tested at any time, and if you have a dirty UA the results go to probation and then are reported to the court. Then the court has the discretion to file a motion to revoke or motion to adjudicate and have you arrested. Generally these results are shared within the legal system, ie: probation, the court, the prosecutor, and/or your defense attorney.
