Assault in the Third Degree is one of the most commonly charged in crimes in New York. It’s a misdemeanor offense, but don’t let that make you think it isn’t serious.
You can serve up to a year in jail for third degree assault, pay a fine of up to $1,000, and live with a criminal record for the rest of your life. With an assault charge on your background check, your future employment, education, and housing opportunities will be limited.
When facing a criminal charge in Queens, don’t try to fight alone. You deserve the best help you can get, and the best shot at a solid future that’s open to everything you could want.
