How Does a New York Criminal Case Begin?

A criminal case begins with either a formal arrest or a Desk Appearance Ticket (DAT) for one or more offenses. If a formal arrest occurs, authorities transport you to central booking. If you receive a DAT, you avoid being “booked.” A DAT, also known as an appearance ticket, is a written order. It requires an individual to appear in criminal court on a specific date and time for arraignment.

Understanding New York Criminal Offenses

New York criminal offenses fall under three main categories. These categories include violations, misdemeanors, and felonies.

Violations are the least serious type of criminal offense in New York. These violations are offenses other than traffic infractions for which a person can be sentenced to a term of imprisonment of no more than 15 days. Violations cover a wide range of offenses, including, but not limited to: Harassment, Trespassing, Disorderly conduct

Violations are not considered crimes. However, you can be arrested for allegedly committing them and even taken into custody.

Misdemeanor offenses are all crimes that come with a potential sentence of imprisonment of up to one year. New York groups misdemeanors into two classes – Class A misdemeanors and Class B misdemeanors. Class A misdemeanors are punishable by up to one year in jail and three years of probation. Common Class A misdemeanors include, but are not limited to: Accessing a computer or network without permission, Petit larceny, Criminal trespass, Reckless endangerment

Class B offenses can be punishable by three months of imprisonment and one year of probation. Common Class B misdemeanors may include: Prostitution, Harassment, Loitering, Public lewdness, Stalking (4th degree)

Felony offenses are more serious than misdemeanors. New York has different classes of felonies that range in severity. However, these offenses carry imprisonment terms of at least one year.

Class A (A-I and A-II) felonies represent the most severe offenses. They generally involve violent crimes. Class A felony crimes may include: Aggravated murder, Terrorism, Kidnapping, Predatory sexual assault

Class E felonies are less serious felonies. For example, Class E felonies may include, but are not limited to: Aggravated harassment, Conspiracy, DWI, Grand larceny

Offenses that fall between these two categories in Class B, C, and D include offenses such as rape, burglary, arson, fraud, manslaughter, vehicular assault, and assault. The penalties for a conviction of these crimes depend on the specific charges. A couple of factors that may affect potential penalties include whether the offense was violent in nature and the defendant’s criminal history.

The Importance of a Strong Defense Strategy

A strong defense strategy is vital for achieving the best possible outcome in a criminal case. It involves:

  • Creating reasonable doubt in the minds of the jurors by raising questions about the credibility of the prosecution’s witnesses
  • Asserting Constitutional violations
  • Establishing an alibi
  • Arguing self-defense, insanity, or other constitutional violations

Engaging with a seasoned New York criminal defense lawyer can ensure that all of the defendant’s rights are safeguarded and the most desirable result is achieved.

Experts can offer invaluable insight into the matter and assist in creating a reasonable doubt. Motions can be employed to dispute the prosecution’s evidence and guarantee that the defendant’s rights are safeguarded. By collaborating with a knowledgeable attorney, utilizing experts, and employing motions adeptly, you can help ensure that your rights are protected and that the most desirable outcome is attained.

Our criminal defense attorneys are committed to crafting strong defense strategies for each client, taking into account the unique circumstances of their case. By thoroughly analyzing the evidence, identifying weaknesses in the prosecution’s case, and presenting compelling arguments in court, our attorneys can help you achieve the best possible outcome for your case.
