Decision Date: 
September 11, 2013
District: 
3d Dist.
Division/County: 
Rock Island Co.
Justice: 
SCHMIDT
Holding: 
Affirmed.
Defendant was convicted, after jury trial, of aggravated battery causing great bodily harm. State proved beyond a reasonable doubt that victim suffered great bodily harm, as Defendant stabbed victim in the back with a knife. Absence of medical testimony about severity or permanency of victim's lacerations did not preclude finding; victim testified that he went to hospital for treatment which included stiches, and jury saw the scar. (O'BRIEN, concurring; McDADE, specially concurring.)
