CASE ANNOTATIONS

1. Aggravated assault of a law enforcement officer committed with a deadly weapon is a general intent crime. State v. Kershaw, 302 Kan. 772, 782, 359 P.3d 52 (2015).

2. Convictions for attempted aggravated robbery, aggravated assault and attempted distribution or possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance are not multiplicitous with one another because the statutes for each require some element not required by the other two. State v. George, 311 Kan. 693, 699, 466 P.3d 469 (2020).
