North Carolina Misdemeanors Versus North Carolina Felonies
You may have no idea whether the charge you face is considered a misdemeanor or a felony under North Carolina law. A felony is typically any crime that is punishable by a year or more in prison. Being convicted of either a felony or a misdemeanor does not necessarily mean you will spend time in jail.
Misdemeanor and felony charges in North Carolina include:
- Traffic violations
- Theft crimes, including violent theft crimes
- White collar crimes
- Assault, including assault with a deadly weapon and other violent crimes
- Armed robbery
- Manslaughter or murder
- Domestic violence
Regardless of the charge you are facing, an experienced criminal defense attorney on your side can mean the difference between dismissal of all charges and a conviction or between probation and a jail or prison sentence. We will work, as appropriate, toward getting a felony reduced to misdemeanor charges, negotiating a favorable plea bargain or preparing for trial.
We are proud to support those who fight for us. The criminal defense team at Roberts Law Group, PLLC, represents members of the military facing criminal charges.
Felony Charges May Be Reduced to Misdemeanor Charges
As a former New Hanover County Assistant District Attorney, Patrick Roberts understands how prosecutors approach felony cases. In many cases, there may be an opportunity to negotiate with the prosecutor to reduce a felony charge to a misdemeanor, especially for first-time offenders. The personalized service we provide each of our criminal defense clients allows us to learn about the facts of the case and present compelling evidence to the prosecutor to reduce the charges.
