Felonies & Misdemeanors

While New York has its own statutory criminal laws, it is non-the-less subject to constitutional limitations and privileges set forth by the United States constitution. First and foremost, under American system of justice, every accused is presumed to be innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. It is up to the prosecutor to factually prove each and every element of a criminal statute. Additionally, every accused is protected by the Fifth Amendment provisions of due process and privilege against self-incrimination. As a result, it is imperative that no interview be granted to any investigator without the assistance and advice of a well-qualified attorney.

A common misconception among accused is that if he or she only explains the situation to the police officer or the prosecutor, they will understand that no crime was committed or that there was a valid defense for the crime. However, the accused should remember that there is no guarantee that the police officer or the prosecutor will see the situation the same way as the accused and statements made will often be used against the accused, making the job of the defense counsel more difficult. Additionally, many of the defenses to the crimes, have very technical requirements which if not in place will invalidate the defense.

 

Detailed knowledge of criminal law and procedure and constitutional law as it applies to each case is an essential part of defense of or plea bargaining in any case. A well rounded understanding of these laws provides the attorney with the ability to properly assess the situation and provide a realistic view of the possible outcome of a trial. Additionally, a detailed knowledge of New York criminal law and procedures enables defense counsel to find and exploit weaknesses in the prosecutor’s case and use such weaknesses in defense or plea bargaining the cases.

Generally, New York crimes carrying the risk of imprisonment are divided into two classes, felonies and misdemeanors. There are a class of violations called “infractions,” however, for the most part infractions deal with traffic violations and do not carry any jail term or heavy fines.

Felonies are crimes whose punishment can exceed one year. In New York, Felonies are classified from A through E, based on the serious nature of the crime. Each class has a violent and non-violent subclass. Except Class A felonies are all considered violent as they are considered the most serious crimes in nature.
