Assault

It is a mistake not to take assault charges seriously. Depending on the details of the offense, you can be charged with a misdemeanor or felony.

In North Carolina, a class 2 misdemeanor simple assault conviction has a maximum sentence of 60 days in jail and a $1,000 fine. The penalties are more severe for assault on a law enforcement officer and assault inflicting serious injury. Assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill is a class C felony with a minimum prison sentence of up to 44 months if you have no prior record.

Misdemeanor And Felony Assault Charges

A conviction for any assault charge can have long-term effects on your future job opportunities, ability to get housing and your relationship with your family. Speaking with a criminal defense lawyer as soon as you are arrested or charged is the best way to protect your rights.

We defend people charged with offenses such as:

  • Simple assault
  • Assault inflicting serious injury
  • Assault with a deadly weapon/aggravated assault
  • Assault on a female
  • Domestic violence

Our attorneys know how to examine assault cases and make sure defendants are treated fairly. Whether they negotiate with the prosecutor or take your case to trial, they will vigorously protect your rights.

Examining the evidence and interviewing witnesses are key parts of an assault defense strategy. We examine the prosecution's case, looking for weaknesses and any improper police procedure. It's best if we can start working immediately, before evidence and crime scenes are compromised and witnesses forget crucial details. When possible, we will argue to suppress evidence and reduce or dismiss charges.
