Extraordinary Risk Crimes

Some Class One Misdemeanors are labeled as “Extraordinary Risk Crimes,” which increases the maximum sentence the judge may give you. Extraordinary Risk Crimes include, but are not limited to, Child Abuse, Third Degree Assault, Unlawful Sexual Contact, and Violation of Restraining Order (only for second or subsequent offenses).
