You Do Not Have To Be In A Gang To Be Charged With Gang Assault
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.
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 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.
We Will Thoroughly Investigate The Circumstances Surrounding Your Arrest
Gang assault charges may come about simply because you or a loved one was in the wrong place at the wrong time. People have been arrested and prosecuted merely for associating with gang members. Unfortunately, these charges can devastate lives and families for years if they result in a conviction.
