Potentially, yes. If there are two separate victims, or one victim with injuries inflicted at different times, the court can give consecutive sentences. If you get upstate prison time on the Assault 2, any sentence on the Assault 3 would merge. If you get local jail time on both charges, the court can run them consecutively for a maximum of two years.
