    While that's disgusting for sure, I don't think it can really count as a felony. Especially given the restrictions felonies come with after completion of punishment periods.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Sure, that's what the law explicitly says. But this woman wasn't in a facility, so this law doesn't apply to her.

    You first argued (b) so that's what I was responding to; sorry for the confusion.

    (a) doesn't apply either, because (a) requires a "a deadly weapon or dangerous instrument, or intentionally causes or attempts to cause physical injury."

    ...to a peace officer.

    Squirting a bodily fluid in someone's face is an intentional attempt to cause physical injury.

    I've had contact with boob fluid and I can't see where it can be seen as potentially harmful under normal circumstances.

    I think it hinges on her intent. Human milk ordinarily would not injure a person, but if she were infected with a disease that could use milk as a vector and she knew it, she may have had sufficient intent to violate that particular law.

    Also, there may be prior cases or statutes that make breast milk and/or all bodily fluids "dangerous instruments", which would make intent irrelevant.

    I have a hard time believing that milk is a "dangerous instrument".

    This must be that judicial activism I keep reading about in other threads, where people read into the law what they want.

    Just saying that's something to have the paralegal look up, just to be safe.
