TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the penal law, in relation to assault in
the second degree
PURPOSE: This bill amends the penal law making a person who is confined
to a secure treatment facility, as defined in article ten of the mental
hygiene law, guilty of assault in the second degree when, with intent to
cause injury to another person, he or she causes injury to such person
or third person.
SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section one amends section 120.05 of the penal law, adding a new subdi-
vision to provide that a person is guilty of assault in the second
degree, when while confined to a secure treatment facility, as defined
in article 10 of the mental hygiene law, and with intent to cause phys-
ical injury to another person, he or she causes injury to such person or
JUSTIFICATION: This bill is needed to protect staff at OMH and OPWDD
secure facilities who are brutalized by the individuals who are confined
to these facilities.
Unfortunately, assaults to these employees are not uncommon, and far too
often result in serious injuries. Current law provides for enhanced
criminal assault penalties to protect police officers, firefighters,
paramedics, emergency room workers school employees, and specific trans-
it personnel, but does not extend such protection to these employees.
These employees require and deserve the same level of protection
provided by a felony charge that would deter clients and other m embers
of the public from the use of physical force to injure, threaten, or
LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: Similar to S.7515/A.10539 of 2012.
FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.
EFFECTIVE DATE: First of November next succeeding the date on which it
shall have become a law.
