In re Glassberg

Louisiana Supreme Court
230 La. 396, 88 So. 2d 707 (1956)

Facts

Jeffrey Glassberg (defendant), a 13-year-old child, was handling a gun that discharged and hit Barbara Ann Caire, Glassberg’s friend, in the face, injuring her. Glassberg was charged with being a juvenile delinquent because he allegedly committed aggravated battery. At trial in juvenile court, Glassberg repeatedly testified that he did not intend to discharge the gun or aim at Caire. Likewise, Caire testified that she did not believe that Glassberg intended to aim at her or shoot the gun and that the shooting was accidental. The juvenile court found that Glassberg intentionally pointed the gun at Caire without the intention of harming her. After imputing criminal intent to Glassberg, the juvenile court found that Glassberg was guilty of aggravated battery and adjudged Glassberg to be a juvenile delinquent. The court sentenced Glassberg to three years of probation in his parents’ custody. Glassberg appealed, arguing that he was improperly convicted because there was no evidence that he had general criminal intent to commit aggravated battery.
