North Carolina (NC) criminal offenses fall under two major categories:

  • Misdemeanor: These are less severe crimes, do not carry heavy penalties, and range from Class A1 (most severe) to Class 3 (least severe) categories. Examples include disorderly conduct, drug possession, assault, some traffic violations, etc. If convicted, you may face up to 150 days of jail time along with a discretionary fine for Class A1 crimes, whereas it is 20 days (maximum) in jail along with a $1,000 fine for Class 3 cases. You'd want to hire a North Carolina criminal defense lawyer to assist you with the available legal recourse.
  • Felony: These are serious crimes involving extreme harm, punishable by hefty fines, life imprisonment, and sometimes both. Something like a first-degree murder (Class A felony) might result in life imprisonment without parole and even a death penalty. Other examples may include kidnapping, rape, breaking into cars or houses, aggravated assault, domestic violence, manslaughter, etc. If convicted, you're likely to face severe penalties, so discussing your case with an expert attorney and obtaining expert representation is imperative.

Like all states, NC guarantees the right to legal representation. In addition, misdemeanors must be raised within two years of the crime. Felony crimes, however, have no statutes of limitations. Also, there are specific laws and procedures for handling juvenile offenders. NC criminal law is complex, with nuances and specificities based on individual cases. If facing legal issues in North Carolina, seeking professional guidance is always advised.
