Buffalo Penalties For Gang Assault In The First Degree (NY PL 120.07)
Like any first degree crime, Gang Assault in the First Degree (NY PL 120.07) is an extremely serious charge, and if Buffalo prosecutors are able to convict you, you may face up to 25 years in prison.
Prosecutors don’t have to show that you are a gang member in order to win.
The elements of the crime are that you intended to and caused serious physical injury to a person, and that you were aided by at least two other people who were present for the assault.
Conviction doesn’t just mean a lengthy prison sentence.
You’ll also be a convicted felon, and once you’re released, you’ll have to disclose your status on every application that asks, from jobs and housing to colleges and loans.
