Governor Paterson signed Grannny's Law 5/2/08
This law increases the penalty for assaulting a person 65 years, or older, to a Class D Felony, punishable by up to 7 years prison time, where the perpetrator is more than 10 years younger than the victim.
Questions - what if there are multiple perpetrators? Is that gang assault? Is the penalty the same or greater? What if the perpetrator(s) are juveniles?
Does Granny's law need to be amended to address the penalties when multiple perpetrators are involved, and/or they are juveniles?
