Hazing In The Second Degree (NY PL 120.17) Defense Lawyer In Buffalo

Hazing in the Second Degree (NY PL 120.17) is charged in Buffalo when prosecutors believe they can prove that, in the course of another person’s initiation or affiliation with any organization, you intentionally or recklessly engaged in conduct which created a substantial risk of physical injury to the other person, or a third person.

While 120.17 is graded as a Violation rather than a misdemeanor or felony, you can still go to jail for up to fifteen days if convicted, and you’ll carry the stigma of a conviction for hazing.

Hazing charges can put you and the organization of which you are a member in a lot of trouble.

You may have friends, peers, or colleagues who are also facing these or related charges after an event.

Protect yourself when you’re charged with Hazing in the Second Degree in Buffalo.
