    Arizona: What is the definition of  "temporary but substantial disfigurement" ?

    I can't find the definition for AZ but for WA I found ""Substantial bodily harm" means bodily injury which involves a temporary but substantial disfigurement" The picture shows the split lip. The police only took pictures of the outside. I'm planning on giving the picture to prosecutor's office in a effort to change the charge from a misdemeanor to a felony.

    Temporary means for a short amount of time. Substantial means to a great degree. In other words, it is a bad injury which could shortly be fixed.
