What Is Gang Assault In The Second Degree?

If you’ve been charged with gang assault in the second degree in New York, it means prosecutors believe they can convict you of causing physical injury to a person when aided by two or more other persons, and when they believe they can prove that you intended to cause the injuries.

Intention is a critical component, and oftentimes a defense case can be won by calling into question the prosecution’s assertions of intent.

Gang Assault in the Second Degree is a Class C Felony and carries a penalty of up to 15 years.
