Offenses that are committed using force or threat of force typically fall under the category of violent crimes in North Carolina. Some actions that fall under this category include:

  • Domestic violence and/or abuse
  • Harassment
  • Stalking
  • Assault and/or battery
  • Aggravated assault and/or battery
  • Using a weapon to commit a crime
  • Making deadly threats
  • Certain property crimes
  • Homicide
  • Murder

In North Carolina, violent crime offenses can carry steep consequences, including lengthy prison sentences and large fines. Because prosecutors are rarely quick to offer leniency with such offenses, it’s important to put the fullest extent of the law on your side by hiring a criminal defense lawyer who knows how to handle such serious charges.
