Penalties for Gang Assault in New York
The crime of gang assault is broken up into first degree and second degree
in New York. Again, in order for it to constitute a gang assault charge,
two or more people must have commissioned the act. The penalties for this
crime are as follows:
Second Degree Gang Assault:
This means that the gang caused physical injury to the victim during the
assault. In New York this is considered to be a Class C felony and it
could lead to a 15 year prison sentence.
First Degree Gang Assault:
When a gang of two or more people attacks an individual and intentionally
causes them serious injury, then it is considered first degree gang assault.
This particular charge is categorized as a Class B felony which is punishable
for up to 25 years in a state prison.
Remember that a gang assault crime does not need to involve gang activity
in order to constitute a criminal charge. The "gang" is in reference
to the number of people working together in commission of the violent
crime. If you or someone you know is facing gang assault charges, contact
our firm immediately to protect your rights against the prosecution.
