What is a Felony?

North Carolina further organizes felony offenses into 10 categories, Class A to Class I ranging from most to least serious. Possible sentences depend on the type of crime, specifics of the case, and whether the defendant has a prior criminal history. If convicted, you could be facing months or years in prison.

Types of Felony Offenses

Our criminal defense lawyers represent clients charged with:

  • Murder
  • Voluntary or involuntary manslaughter
  • Sex crimes
  • Kidnapping
  • Aggravated assault
  • Arson
  • Armed robbery
  • Robbery
  • Forgery

Although Class I felonies are far less serious and carry less severe penalties for conviction, it is always better to avoid a felony conviction whenever possible. A conviction on your criminal record can result in denial of educational opportunities, employment, and may even limit where you can live after you are released from prison. We offer skilled legal representation to clients facing indictment, at trial, and at the appellate stage.
