What does the law say?
Maiming is defined as a premeditated design to injure another, inflict upon a person any injury which disfigures his personal appearance or disables any member or organ of his body or seriously diminishes his physical vigor.
There are various ways that the State can be more specific with the charge. For instance, a person can be charged with maiming themselves, or they can specify that a tool or instrument was used to cause the injuries, or if the injuries disable or disfigure.
