Stalking in the 1st Degree can be committed in two distinct ways. Both require that you are engaged in Stalking in the 3rd Degree, and while doing so:
- you intentionally or recklessly cause injury to a person; or
- you commit another crime.
Stalking in the 1st Degree is a class D violent felony under NY Penal Law §120.60(1). This means you face a maximum of 7 years in New York State prison.
