Breaking Down NY Assault Laws: A Look into Article 12
Assault and related offenses are defined and described by Article 120 of the New York Penal Code. Assaults are generally classified as felonies and misdemeanors, but there are other, lesser-known classification types, like violations.
Assault charges are serious matters and have consequences that include everything from fines to years in prison. The age and demographics of the victim, use of a weapon or vehicle, the extent of the injury, and the presence of children are just some of the factors that define the charges.
If you are facing assault charges, you should contact legal professionals with deep experience handling such serious and life-changing matters.
