Criminal Defense

In North Carolina, crimes are either misdemeanors or felonies. Misdemeanors are less serious, and the maximum sentence is usually up to 150 days, depending on the offense and prior criminal record. Common misdemeanors include simple assault, possessing a small amount of marijuana, communicating threats, and larceny of goods worth $1,000 or less. Felonies are more serious offenses. Common felonies include obtaining property by false pretenses, robbery, possession of cocaine with the intent to sell it, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

To convict you of a crime, the state must prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt.
