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.
