2.    Definitions.

a.    “Bodily harm” means physical pain or injury, or any impairment of physical condition.

b.    “Intent” means the mental purpose to cause bodily harm to another human being, or a belief that the act, if successful, will cause such harm to another even if the defendant does not desire that harm to occur. It is not a defense for an actor who harms another to state that he or she did not believe bodily harm would occur if an ordinary person would know or should have known the harm would occur.

Said penalty is found in Wis. Stat. § 939.51(3)(b). The Town adopts and incorporates by reference in this section both Wis. Stat. §§ 939.51(3)(b) and 940.19(1).

4.    Any future amendments, revisions, or modifications of Wis. Stat. § 939.51(3)(b) or 940.19(1), adopted and incorporated herein, are intended to be made part of this section as such amendments, revisions, or modifications are made to said statutes. (Ord. 2019-5 §§ 1 – 4)
