Gang Assault in the First Degree is a Class B felony, carrying a penalty of up to 25 years in prison.
Gang Assault in the First Degree is defined as causing serious physical injury to a person while aided by two or more people, and where you intend to cause the serious physical injury.
The seriousness of the injuries caused is what distinguishes Gang Assault in the First Degree from Gang Assault in the Second Degree, which alleges that only “physical injury” was caused and intended.
One approach when charged with Gang Assault in the First Degree is to negotiate on the element of the seriousness of injuries and aim for a reduced charge.
