A hate crime is when someone commits a crime against you motivated by bias or prejudice. According to New York Penal Code §485, a person commits a hate crime when they commit a specified offense and either:
Common hate crime charges in Brooklyn include assault, harassment, menacing, and vandalism. But any crime can become a hate crime if its motivated by bias.
Hate crime charges are serious with harsh penalties. If convicted, you may face increased fines, probation, or jail time. You could even face felony charges versus misdemeanor charges for the same act without the hate crime enhancement. And if your on probation or parole, a new conviction could mean going back to jail.
Having an experienced Brooklyn hate crime lawyer on your side can mean the difference between a dismissal, reduced charges, or even an acquittal versus a conviction that follows you for life. An attorney knows how to examine the evidence, challenge witness credibility, and argue against bias motivation to either beat the charges or reduce the penalties. Don’t go it alone against the power of the state – let a lawyer defend your rights.
There are many strategies a skilled lawyer can use to defend against hate crime accusations, such as:
Before the hate crime enhancement can stick, the prosecution must first prove you committed the underlying criminal act. If your lawyer can get the assault, vandalism, or other charges dismissed or beat at trial, the hate crime goes away too.
The prosecution must also prove beyond a reasonable doubt that bias motivated the crime. But bias is hard to prove definitively, and there may be other plausible explanations. An experienced attorney will closely examine the evidence to show other possible motivations.
If police violated your rights in any way during the investigation, like through improper searches or coercion to get a confession, a lawyer can get damaging evidence thrown out. This often weakens the prosecution’s case.
When facing a hate crime charge, you want the most experienced and aggressive lawyer possible. Look for someone with a proven record of getting hate crime cases dismissed or charges reduced. Consider:
Also, make sure you feel comfortable and confident in the lawyer you choose. You need someone willing to aggressively defend you and fight the charges 100%.
Cost may also be a factor, as skilled defense lawyers aren’t cheap. But don’t let money override getting the best representation possible – it’s your life and future at stake. Also, many lawyers offer payment plans to help spread defense costs over time.
Hate crime charges can ruin lives and futures. But an experienced Brooklyn hate crime lawyer can stand up to the accusations and protect your rights and freedom. Don’t leave your defense to chance – get the representation you deserve.
