Felonies in North Carolina
North Carolina recognizes various felony offenses and classifies them into categories ranging from Class A felonies (the only Class A felony is First Degree Murder) to Class I felonies. It is important to remember that based on the facts of your case and the circumstances surrounding your arrest, the specific penalties that you may be facing will vary.
Examples of felonies may include:
- Child molestation
- Involuntary manslaughter
- Terroristic threats
- Obtaining Property by False Pretenses
- Aggravated assault
- Child pornography
- Grand theft
- Vehicular homicide in association with a DWI
- Various drug crimes
Some felony offenses are tried at the state level and others are tried at the federal level. In some cases, felonies may fall under both state and federal laws and you could be facing both penalties. A felony conviction can lead to far-reaching, life-altering consequences, including jail or prison time, fines, and a loss of your rights and liberties.
