Toscano first contends that the State failed to prove either second degree assault because it did not prove that Ms. 714, 718, 995 P.2d 107 (2000).¶ 9 Second degree assault means to “assault[ ] another with a deadly weapon.” RCW 9A.36.021(1)(c). This is the definition of assault at issue here.¶ 10 Assault requires specific intent to create the apprehension of harm.

Instead, the constitutional requirement of “true threat” merely defines and limits the scope of the essential threat element. This language incorporates the requirement that true threats be evaluated using an “objective standard that focuses on the speaker.” See, e.g., State v. An indirect threat may also constitute a true threat. 662, 145 P.3d 1224 (2006) (holding that an instruction defining “true threat” is not needed for the crime of intimidating a former witness, RCW 9A.72.110; the crime's elements are such that they limit the statute's application to true threats and exclude constitutionally protected speech). The true threat requirement is imposed so that criminal statutes prohibiting threats do not target constitutionally protected speech.
