Let Us Help You Protect Your Reputation, Freedom & Future
A criminal arrest can be one of the most frightening and humiliating experiences anyone can face. It can also put you at risk for an array of penalties, from jail or prison time to hefty fines, long probation periods, and other court-ordered actions. A conviction can result in a permanent criminal record that can also impact you for the long haul, damaging your ability to find jobs, advance your career, qualify for professional licenses or higher education, and more.
If you encounter law enforcement and think you could be arrested, stop talking. You get one chance to tell your story and you tell it in front of a jury, not in a police interrogation. You cannot be punished for exercising your 5th amendment right to remain silent!
Other important things you should do to protect your constitutional rights:
- Always be polite and respectful
- Provide the officer with your ID or name and date of birth
- Inform the officer that you are not making any statements without your lawyer
- Give the officer your lawyer’s name
- Inform the officer that you are not consenting to any search of your person, belongings, vehicle or house
- Do not discuss your case with anyone except your attorney
With your reputation, freedom, and future at stake, it is not the time to take chances inside the criminal justice system.

Misdemeanors in North Carolina
North Carolina misdemeanors have been divided into four types as follows:
- Class A1. This is the most serious. Assault causing seriously injury is an example.
- Class 1. Prostitution is an example.
- Class 2. Carrying a firearm without a permit is an example.
- Class 3. This is the least serious. An example is first-offense shoplifting.
Misdemeanors are generally punishable by up to a year in jail and/or community service, fines, and probation.
Felonies in North Carolina
Felonies are crimes that are generally punishable by more than year in prison. However, in North Carolina, lower-level felonies may result in sentences of less than a year.
Sentencing in any felony conviction depends on the class of the felony, its range of sentencing, and your prior criminal history, if any. Felonies in North Carolina fall into 10 categories by letter, such as Class A, Class B1 or B2, down to Class I, which is the lowest level carrying the least penalties.
