F 18.11 n1 Possession Of Deadly Weapon: Requirement Of Specific Intent (PC 467).
PC 467 which imposes criminal liability for possession of a deadly weapon with intent to assault another requires a specific intent to assault upon which the jury must be instructed. (People v. Stevenson (78) 79 CA3d 976, 988 [145 CR 301].) Moreover, because this is a specific intent crime, defenses such as intoxication may negate the felonious intent element of the offense. (Ibid.)
