Allegations of Assault on a Judge (NY PL 120.09) are especially complicated to defend.
Charges that you’ve engaged in conduct, especially a violent assault, against any officer of the court or law enforcement, with the intent of impeding the operation of our criminal justice system will make you particularly unsympathetic to judges and prosecutors.
Yes, you are innocent until proven guilty, but cases like these are challenging for all involved.
Assault on a Judge is a class C felony, with a maximum sentence of 15 years.
Because it’s a violent felony, the minimum time you’ll have to serve before being considered for parole is at least three and a half years.
If you have prior convictions, the minimum bumps to seven years.
Being charged with a crime is not the same as being convicted.
