NYC Assault with a Deadly Weapon Lawyers

To be charged with assault, the accused must be recklessly or intentionally causing injury to another individual.

If you are facing charges of assault with a deadly weapon, contact someone from the Spodek Law Group right away.

Assault with a Deadly Weapon in NYC

When considering assault, a deadly weapon encompasses any tool that can cause significant injuries. This results in permanent injury for the victim. Due to the serious nature of this crime, there are serious consequences for assault with a deadly weapon.

If you are convicted of assault with a deadly weapon, you may face a few years in prison, be charged with exorbitant fees, as well as forced to perform restitution. In order to successfully defend yourself against these charges, you’ll need an attorney who is thoroughly experienced with the laws regarding assault. The Spodek Law Group of New York can provide you with the best legal aid to overcome any charges related to assault with a deadly weapon.

The Charges Involved with Assault with a Deadly Weapon

The charges of assault with a deadly weapon vary according to the level of assault. The deadly weapon itself is classified as a weapon capable of causing death or any serious bodily injury.

1. First-degree Assault

You may face a charge of first-degree assault if you already intended to inflict serious injury with a deadly weapon. Similarly, if you act with reckless indifference to human life that results in injuries or death, you may be charged with this degree of assault. This is a class B felony.

2. Second-degree Assault

Similar to first-degree assault, second-degree assault refers to the accused intentionally injuring another individual. While the first-degree assault covers a serious injury or death, the second-degree focuses on intent to injure. This is a class D felony.

3. Third-Degree Assault

Third-degree assault is considered a misdemeanor of the class A variety. You will be charged with this degree of assault if you cause any sort of physical injury to another person with a deadly weapon.

4. First-Degree Reckless Endangerment

In cases of first-degree reckless endangerment, the accused has, with indifference to human life, recklessly endangered the lives of others through their conduct. This is a class D felony.

Defenses for an Assault Charge

An experienced lawyer from the Spodek Law Group will be able to expertly defend your case. The following defenses are commonly used in assault charges:

1. The extent of Injury

The seriousness of the assault charge depends heavily on the extent of any injuries that the victim has suffered. The defense team must work to show that the injuries incurred are minor.

2. Self-Defense

In New York, physical force is legally allowed as a way to protect one’s self against imminent harm. With a lawyer from the Spodek Law Group, you’ll be able to make the case that you acted out of self-defense, rather than a reckless intent to harm.

Being charged with assault of any degree is a serious offense. Don’t hesitate to make an appointment with a lawyer from the Spodek Law Group today.
