NYC Assault Lawyers
One of the most famous crimes in NYC is assault. According to the New York law, assault can be defined as conduct that causes offensive physical behavior or physical harm to another individual, or intention attempt to cause harm. Because of the nature of these crimes including the various ways in which assault is perpetrated, this crime is charged for a wide range of conduct. NYC prosecutors handle assault very seriously, and that’s why the district attorney always seeks significant punishment for anyone who is convicted of assault.
Ramifications of assault convictions impact people’s freedom, financial stability, and future employment – if you don’t have a strong and strategic defense, you will put each of these aspects of your life at risk. Why allow yourself to be in this predicament if you can get knowledgeable and competent legal services from the Spodek Law Group?
NYC assault charges
Under the NYC penal code, the charges of assault vary depending on the severity and the potential punishment. These charges differ based on the method and means of assault; the victim’s identity and he/she fall under a pro, including the severity of the alleged injury. There are three degrees of assault charges, so knowing the differences helps to build a strong defense. An experienced and knowledgeable assault attorney from Spodek Law Group can help you understand more.
• Assault in the 1st degree is categorized as a class B felony. It is considered the most severe kind of assault under the NYC law.
• Assault in the 2nd degree is classified as a class D felony. It is punishable by more than a year in prison.
• Assault in 3rd degree categorized as a class A misdemeanor. It is the least severe type of assault under the NYC law.
