State v. Barnett

In State v. Barnett, 53 Conn. App. 581, 734 A.2d 991, cert. denied, 250 Conn. 918, 738 A.2d 659 (1999), the Court concluded that "the defendant was charged with assault against the victim as an accessory, and, therefore, the state did not need to prove that the defendant actually caused serious physical injury to the victim. It is enough for the state to prove that the defendant, acting with the intent to cause serious injury to the victim, solicited, requested, commanded, importuned or intentionally aided another person to cause serious physical injury to the victim by means of a dangerous weapon." Id., 588.
