Buffalo Criminal Attorney For Reckless Endangerment In The First Degree (NY PL 120.25)

If you’ve been charged with Reckless Endangerment in the First Degree (NY PL 120.25) in Buffalo, you should know that you’re facing a long prison sentence if you’re convicted.

The language of the statute is stark, and judges feel a strong inclination to punish a conviction in ways you won’t forget.

NY PL 120.25 defines Reckless Endangerment in the First Degree as, under circumstances evincing a depraved indifference to human life, you recklessly engage in conduct which creates a grave risk of death to another person.

These concepts – “depraved indifference to human life” and “grave risk of death to another person” – are extremely significant in the law, which takes a particularly harsh approach to conduct that can result in death, and where the actor displays an absolute disregard for human life.

Conviction under NY PL 120.25 can put you away for seven years, and will leave you with a felony conviction for the rest of your life.

Don’t take chances with something this serious.
