US v. Commanche, No. 08-2257

By FindLaw Staff on August 24, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Defendant's conviction for assault resulting in serious bodily injury is reversed where, because defendant's two prior aggravated battery convictions bore on his intent only if a jury first infers that he is prone to violence, the district court abused its discretion by allowing testimony as to the facts underlying these convictions.
