New York considers any sort of injury inflicted upon someone else without “legal justification” to be the crime of assault. Depending on the harm dealt to the assault victim and a few other contributing factors, assault can constitute either a high level misdemeanor or a felony. In any situation, the consequences upon conviction can include lengthy incarceration, high fines, and a variety of other potential legal penalties.
If you are accused of assault, you need to be aware that investigators and prosecutors are probably already working in conjunction to build a strong case against you.
