    miles is pretty good when there is 10 sec left and no time outs.

    According to the legal definitions I'm reading severe pain would qualify it as a felony. So if one of them says ouch it's a felony.

    Um, what you've got there are jury charges for a felony assault in New York.

    In Louisiana, broken vertebrae likely would result in 2d degree battery charge.

    Your basic point is correct though; severe physical pain can turn a battery into a felony.

    Third-person hearsay. Jefferson has not spoken publicly or to the press and so has not lied.

    I'm starting to get really annoyed with the police. They have leaked everything that the alleged victims have stated, have mentioned nothing about what the players stories are, and a week after the incident, still have not interviewed any independent witnesses including the frigging bar employees. What are they waiting for?

    The law doesn't distinguish between a punch or a kick, it comes down to injury unless some type of weapon in used. JJ wouldn't be charged with a felony from the reports of what the injuries were from the kick to the face unless the DA charges that JJ kicked him so hard it broke the other guys vertebra.. I have a feeling the guy with the broken vertebra has a shoe print on the back of his shirt which would mean the kicks which have been reported are a complete separate action..
