Get A Respected New York City Criminal Defense Lawyer For Gang Assault Charges

New York City authorities take seriously any charges that could be associated with gang activity. That is why gang-related crimes can carry more significant penalties than would otherwise be associated with assault crimes.

You Do Not Have To Be In A Gang To Be Charged With Gang Assault

When three or more people are accused of physical violence against another, they may be charged with gang assault. This is true even if no defendant is actually involved in a gang.

If you are charged with gang assault in the second degree, you may be facing up to 15 years in prison. Gang assault in the first degree involves intentionally causing serious physical harm with the assistance of two or more people, which is a felony punishable by up to 25 years in prison.
