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.
Gang Assault 2nd Degree
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.
Gang Assault 1st Degree
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 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.
