Gang Assault Defense in NYC

Protecting the Rights of Defendants in Yonkers, White Plains, & New Rochelle

When a person is charged with "gang assault" in New York City, they may be wondering what types of charges they are up against and if this will result in serious consequences. As an experienced criminal defense law firm, the legal team at the Law Offices of Daniel A. Hochheiser can assist you with over 60 years of collective experience.

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 at our firm today.
