In order to reach a conviction for assault, the prosecution must be able to prove that there was an intention and actual ability to harm the alleged victim. Even if they have evidence that you allegedly prepared to commit an attack, this is not sufficient evidence. They must illustrate that you have not only taken a substantial step towards harming someone else, but also that the victim was in fear of being harmed.
