    Wow. Mayhem is a pretty serious charge and this alleged crime – if proven to be true – sounds heinous.

    For those who don’t know the definition of mayhem in California (no – it is not some random car crash for an insurance commercial):

    Every person who unlawfully and maliciously deprives a human being of a member of his body, or disables, disfigures, or renders it useless, or cuts or disables the tongue, or puts out an eye, or slits the nose, ear, or lip, is guilty of mayhem.

    I hope the victim in this case makes a full recovery. This is terrible.

    dean….and we ALL can hope this guy that (allegedly) did these crimes get’s much more than a slap on the wrist plea-bargin…if convicted.
