Destiny Anne Harris
A 32-year-old Helena woman is accused of assaulting her husband.
Destiny Anne Harris is charged with felony partner or family member assault (third or subsequent offense).
On Sept. 3, law enforcement was dispatched to Canyon Ferry Road for reports of a domestic dispute. The caller reported that his wife had pushed him, spit on him and punched him in the face at least twice. Deputies spoke with the victim, who said he had arrived home and his wife started arguing with him before physically assaulting him.
The victim said his face hurt. Deputies were unable to observe any visible signs of injury on his face.
The defendant spoke with law enforcement and initially denied any physical contact. This escalated to her saying there was only a verbal argument and then her admitting to pushing the victim. She said she does not remember punching him.
Deputies spoke with two juvenile children who were present, and both said the defendant either pushed or punched the victim.
The defendant has four prior PFMA convictions.
All charged are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
