Sale of a Firearm (First Degree)

Criminal Sale of a Firearm (First Degree)

New York laws deal harshly with illegal gun sales, but when multiple guns are involved, the penalties are even more unforgiving. All it takes is the sale of five guns to elevate a Criminal Sale of a Firearm charge from a third-degree felony offense to a more serious second-degree felony offense. The sale of 10 guns or more is a first-degree felony offense.

Criminal Sale of a Firearm in the Second Degree is a Class C felony under New York Penal Law, Part 3, Title P, Article 265.12. The knowledge and unlawful sale, exchange, gift, or disposal of five or more operable firearms all at once to another person is illegal under this statute, as are the same actions involving another person or persons within a period of one year or less.

An arrest for this charge may occur when a person who is not authorized to possess a firearm possesses five to nine guns anyway and sells, exchanges, gives away, or disposes of them.

Penalties for a conviction of the criminal sale of a firearm in the second degree include up to 15 years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000, as well as the seizure and destruction of the guns.

Types of Criminal Sale of a Firearm in the First Degree

New York Penal Law, Part 3, Title P, Article 265.13 states that a person is guilty of Criminal Sale of a Firearm in the First Degree when that person knowingly and unlawfully:

  • Sells, exchanges, gives or disposes of to another (person a total of) 10 or more operable firearms (at one time); or
  • Sells, exchanges, gives or disposes of to another person or persons a total of 10 or more operable firearms in a period of not more than one year.

That means it is illegal to sell or otherwise exchange 10 or more guns at once to the same person or sell or otherwise exchange a total of 10 or more guns to any number of people within the span of a year.

Note: The illegal sale of five or more firearms (sale of five to nine firearms) is a lesser second-degree offense (Class C violent felony). (See N.Y. P.L. § 265.12). Until late in 2005, the illegal sale of 10 or more firearms was also a Class C felony in New York

Definitions of Terms Related to Criminal Sale of a Firearm in the First Degree

Several key terms in the law are legally defined in the statutes, including firearm, knowingly, unlawfully, dispose of, and operable.

A “firearm” is defined in N.Y. P.L. § 265.00(3) as “any pistol or revolver.” Certain types of shotguns or rifles, as well as an “assault weapon,” are also considered to be “firearms,” but an “antique firearm” is not. (See N.Y. P.L. § 265.00 for definitions of these other weapons.)

Under N.Y. P.L. Part 1, Title B, Article 15.05(2), a person “knowingly” possesses a firearm when that person is “aware” that he or she is in possession of a firearm.

A person “unlawfully” sells, exchanges, gives or disposes of a firearm when that person has no legal right to do so. This includes people who do not have a gun license and other people prohibited from possessing a gun, such as convicted felons. (See N.Y. P.L. § 400).

“Dispose of” means “to dispose of, give, give away, lease, loan, keep for sale, offer, offer for sale, sell, transfer and otherwise dispose of.” (N.Y. P.L. § 265.00(6)).

A firearm does not need to be loaded for a person to be charged under this law, but the firearm must be “operable.” To be operable, a firearm must be “capable of discharging ammunition,” although previous court cases have established that the possessor of a gun does not need to know if the gun was operable in order to be charged.

When I found myself in trouble I was referred to Jeff Greco as the solution to my problem. The first day I walked into his office and talked with him and his associate Brian Valerio to explain my case. Their level of attention to work and get the best results in my case was beyond my expectations. Both, Jeff and Brian, would provide me with answers every time I had a question regarding my case, without a doubt, they were always available to provide me the best service. Jeff and Brian managed to minimize my charges. To this day, I am very thankful I selected the right team to solve my case. Best attorneys you can have on your side. -Christian S

Jeffrey Greco is a friend in need! My best friend acquainted this firm with me and I am extremely grateful for having them to assist us with my case. It happened a few months ago, I got a speeding ticket going 90 mph in a 50 zone and caught driving under the influence of liquor. Within only two or three weeks working with this firm, my case was diminished to a negligible fine with 30 day community service. They were exceptionally expert and they made the whole procedure simple and stressful. I exceedingly recommend this firm!

Lawyer Jeff Greco is a great trial lawyer. Many defense lawyers don’t look to take cases to trial, but Mr. Greco does. He was relentless in my defense and very aggressive. It was the perfect strategy for the situation, and I couldn’t have asked for more from my lawyer.

I didn’t have a big case or major situation for Jeff to handle, but many questions about a small criminal matter. He took the time to speak with me over the phone and even meet in person to help with my situation. Eventually he helped to convince the ADA to throw out the charges. Thanks Jeff for taking on something much smaller than your normal cases - and thanks for making me feel just as important as your big case clients.

I contacted Greco Neyland with questions about my assault case, and was quickly happy with what I heard from Jeff Greco. Mr. Greco is intelligent, responsive, and aware of criminal law in New York. He provided legal advice that was easy to understand and straightforward. Throughout my entire case he never left me out in the dark and constantly provided updates on my case. I’d give Mr. Greco my highest recommendation as NYC defense lawyer.

He was very detailed - he asked a lot of questions about what happened before and after my arrest in NYC and a lot of other  things. I hope I never go through a criminal case again. I would recommend Jeff Greco to anyone of my friends.

I hired Jeff Greco during one of the most difficult times of my life. The nightmare started when I was arrested on drug charges in NYC. I had nowhere to turn for help but prosecutors offered a deal and my attorney at the time was pushing to end the case and take the deal. I started calling lawyers all over New York City, but talking with Mr. Greco on the phone was the first time I felt really comfortable. Hiring Jeff Greco, was a great decision and I likely wouldn’t have received the good outcome in my case without him.

I had a lot of cost concerns hiring a private defense attorney. I worried about taking a part-time job to cover the expenses and dreaded that first bill for my defense, but with Jeff Greco I didn’t need to worry. The lawyers I worked with were constantly aware of my cost limitations and keeping the expenses as reasonable as possible, He is not cheap...but he made it work for us in our situation. Plus, everyone I spoke to in the office was willing to answer my questions or send an email. I couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer during a difficult time in my life.

Jeff Greco is a NYC lawyer that understands the importance of communication and a fast response. As a client, the last thing I want is to spend days or a week waiting to hear from my lawyer. Jeff Greco called me immediately and gave me his cell phone. He took my calls when I needed to be calmed down or if I had pressing questions.  All of my questions were answered and I never felt forgotten or neglected. I knew Jeff was on top of my defense at all times!

Top notch lawyer! The reviews for Jeff Greco said 5 stars and a 10.0 - I know why now. I hired Jeff to go to trial on a DWI and drug case b/c my other lawyer didn’t think I should go to trial. When I hired Jeff the first thing he said when I told him I wanted to go to trial was - “Great. When is the trial date?  Let’s do this.” He was actually glad to see I was willing to fight the charges. I am a med student so this was critical for me to be exonerated. Jeff went to trial and destroyed the arresting officer on cross examination. The jury deliberated 9 minutes and found me not guilty of BOTH the DWI & the drug case. I never doubted Jeff Greco’s commitment to my case or his willingness to fight for a good outcome - this verdict just proved I was right.

Last year, I was charged with domestic violence (all made up lies), and spent weeks trying to argue there wasn’t any truth to the accusations. I hired Jeff Greco because he was the first one who actually believed me. He not only convinced everyone involved that I was innocent, but gave me an opportunity to tell my side of the story. I’m still grateful for all of their help. I moved on with my life and I don’t have a criminal record either! Jeff got my case dismissed b/c he believed in me and showed the DA I didn’t do anything wrong.

Jeff Greco managed to achieve a great outcome in my husband’s criminal case. Before contacting the firm, we were incredibly worried about going to dealing with the prosecutors and going to trial – especially because the arraignment was overwhelming enough. But Jeff was confident from the start, and our family couldn’t be more grateful for his work. My husband has put this horrible chapter of his life behind him thanks to Jeff!

From the start, my experience with Jeff was professional, but personal. In handling my federal criminal case, Jeff used discretion and took confidentiality seriously. It really built trust in a complicated legal situation. It was the scariest time of my life, and Jeff was able to keep me out of prison. I owe him more than words can describe!

At first I thought my arrest for DWI wasn’t a big deal, but my DWI case escalated because of separate charges for reckless driving and refusing a breathalyzer test. Just before my court hearing, I knew I needed an attorney – fast! Jeff Greco was quick to help explain the DWI process, put together a defense, and explain everything along the way.

The best of the best!!!! I had bad blood with neighbors that lasted many years, which led to me being accused of vandalizing their car. I have no criminal history at all by the way. i found out that i had to turn myself in, so before i did i called up Jeff Greco late at night. he returned my phone call early the next morning and had a meeting. He got in touch with the detective and got me a DAT. I didn't have to step one foot in a jail cell for something i never did. throughout the course of the case his team was excellent. i couldn't of asked for anything more . During the case i was being accused again of vandalizing their car on two other occasions, which led to more adjournments. Anytime i was worried about something that had to do with the case, Jeff was there, he was straight didn't sugar coat anything and was persistent. I finally got an ACD pretty quickly considering the false accusations and I owe it all to Greco and his team of amazing lawyers. He made me feel protected and well defended during a not so wonderful time in my life.

I'm just going to start this review by saying Jeff Greco is amazing attorney. I have absolutely no complaints about the service he provided me. He was knowledgeable, available at all times and very understanding. I can tell Jeff Greco actually cared about me and the situation I was going through. He seemed well connected and respected in the court system community and got my case dropped from a DWI charge to a violation very swiftly. I was going through financial problems, he not once pressured me about payments. Again not only is he an Amazing attorney but also an AMAZING human being. I would recondmend Mr. Jeff Greco to anyone! -Anthony Vargas

I was facing 20 years to life for a federal conspiracy case. Jeff push for a speedy trail the goverment came down to ten years it being is one time deal offer then came down to three years and finally a week before trial try to change my trial date. Jeff wrote a letter apposing this adjourment which the judge apposed. Two weeks later jeff walk me out from jail with time served. Till this day i can text him and he will answer me jeff is like a friend that i owe my life to. From my experience being in federal jail most attorney wont fight for you because the federal govement is unbeatable the only thing he ask for was for the truth which i did tell him and he took it from there . Thank you jeff

first offense for me and i was super nervous. i called multiple attorneys and the first thing they would ask was if you knew my fee. From the moment i spoke to Jeff Greco he made me feel like we were friends and I made a mistake and not to worry he has my back. Jeff was available at all times and when ever I texted he was prompt, no matter how many questions I had, which happened to be a lot. He got my case dismissed and made sure I was comfortable the whole time I time he was defending me. I would definitely recommend Jeffrey Greco.

2 years ago I was charged with a crime "cash smuggling " I made the mistake of not reporting the amount of cash I was taking out of the USA . Prior to that I've never committed a crime , not even a traffic ticket on my record. So you can imagine what I felt that day that I was arrested. I've never been in a trial before , I didn't know who to call, I didn't know any lawyers in this type of case. Thank God my sister in law worked in a attorneys office so she ask her boss (attorney) if she knew somebody GOOD In this type of cases. Her boss automatically said he needs somebody with power and with a good record -MR. Jeffery L. Greco (Jeff) . Having Jeff by my side was the Best decision I've made in my life. The level of professionalism and caring of this man is Amazing . I've always heard that lawyers are just interesting in the money , it wasn't the case with "Jeff " he wanted me free, he wanted me to keep my job and enjoyed the freedom with my family . He kept money to the side , he worked with me, with my situation , and he was never intimidated by the Judge. I can not stress enough how he treated me through out the entire case, so much respect . I don't know much lawyers, but He is the one you want to defend you. I didn't step a foot in jail, i was able to keep my job, and now I'm enjoying freedom. Jeff and I still text each other here and there , is like we're family , i consider him my friend. I owed my life to this man, best attorney ever. Jose L Cabrera .
