New York Penal Code

Criminal cases happen in New York when something happens that catches the attention of the government. This can be a referral from another agency in New York, a police officer observing something, or a report from another person. Once the police have the necessary evidence that a crime was committed, they will investigate and make an arrest.

The protocols followed, the process, and consequences, of an arrest, are constrained by the New York penal codes. For example, the criminal procedures that govern the way a police officer can interrogate suspects, and conduct a search, are governed by the New York penal codes. Criminal law, as dictated by the New York penal code, tells you whether a crime was committed, and what evidence can be introduced, and what the overall process is.

In New York, law enforcement officers such as the police investigate a crime, and then prosecutor will file charges against the accused based on the evidence the police find. The police can work for a local police department, or for the State of New York. Prosecutors can work for local DA’s, or for the State Attorney General. The police and prosecutors have discretion. Whether or not the police/prosecutors, will press legal action depends on the law. If something happened, it is viewed within the context of New York penal code.

The New York penal code is divided into many parts, titles, articles, and subsequently individual laws.

  • Defenses are in Part 1, Title C
  • Sentences are in Part 2, Title E
  • Specific offenses are mentioned in Part 3
