Rochester Penalties For Assault In The First Degree (NY PL 120.10)
Assault in the First Degree (NY PL 120.10) is an extremely serious felony crime in Rochester that can result in a sentence of up to 25 years if convicted.
There are a number of ways to be charged, as defined in the statute itself:
- Cause serious physical injury to another, with intent to do so, using a weapon
- Disfigure or cause amputation or permanent disability to another, with intent to do so
- With depraved indifference to human life, engage in reckless conduct that creates a grave risk of death to another, and causes serious physical injury to another
- Cause serious physical injury to another during the commission of or flight from a felony.
Being convicted of a violent class B felony won’t only mean that you’ll face a potentially lengthy prison sentence.
You’ll also deal with the ramifications of a record once your return to society, and you’ll have to live with the mark against you every time you check the box on job and housing applications and more.
You can fight back. Being charged with a crime is not the same as being convicted.
