I recently received a call from an individual who had a bad night at a Chippewa bar in downtown Buffalo. A fight had broken out, and he was actually charged with assault in the third degree which, in New York State, is a very serious crime. It is an A misdemeanor, which is punishable by up to a year in jail, up to three years of probation, and a possible order of protection in favor of the individual who was assaulted. Because convicting somebody of assault requires submission of certain very serious proofs, it’s important to consult with a criminal attorney in Buffalo and go over the facts and circumstances of your case before making any decision on how to proceed. An attorney can help you defend your case and achieve the best possible result.
