There is a wide array of gun crimes one can commit, and as such, there are various classifications for those crimes according to New York law. The more severe the crime, the more severe the classification. These classifications range from misdemeanors to felonies, though no matter which you are charged with, you absolutely must retain the services of an experienced Rockland County criminal defense attorney. The classifications for various gun crimes in New York State are as follows:
Class B Misdemeanor
Class A Misdemeanor
You may receive a Class A misdemeanor for any of the following gun crimes:
Class E Felony
Felony charges bring about far more severe consequences. Some Class E felony charges are as follows:
Class D Felony
Class C Felony
Class B Felony
An escalated charge is when you are charged with a gun crime on top of another crime. If you were caught robbing a store with the use of a gun, for example, you will face both gun charges and robbery charges. This can result in years behind bars, which is why you must retain the services of an experienced Rockland County criminal defense attorney as soon as you can. Our firm is here to help.
