criminal defense law firm, the legal team at the Law Offices of Daniel A. Hochheiser can

Gang assault is defined under New York Penal Code Section 120.06 and 120.07
as the following:
- Gang assault in the second degree is an assault in which physical injury
is caused to another person with assistance from two or more people in
the commission of the act. This offense is considered a class C felony
and punishable up to 15 years in state prison.
- Gang assault in the first degree is defined as intentionally causing serious
physical injury to another person with assistance from two or more people.
This is tried as a class B felony with possible punishment of up to 25
years in state prison.
Contrary to what the name may suggest, gang assault does not have to actually
involve gang activity. It simply is defined as multiple people acting
together to commit an
assault against another person. To learn more about gang assault and to find out
how you can get the proper defense, contact a criminal defense attorney
