Understanding felony charges in North Carolina
North Carolina crimes are divided into two categories: misdemeanors and felonies.
Felonies have far more serious consequences, including possible confinement in a state prison for more than one year. Most felony crimes fall into one of three categories:
- Violent crimes — Violent crimes include homicide and murder; kidnapping; armed robbery; forcible rape; vehicular homicide; assault with a deadly weapon; elder, disabled or domestic abuse resulting in serious bodily injury; and certain arsons and child sexual abuse crimes.
- Property crimes — Felony property crimes include burglary, grand theft, obtaining property by false pretenses, embezzlement of more than $100,000 and forgery.
- Drug crimes — Drug felonies include trafficking in cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine or amphetamine; selling drugs to a child under 13; and other drug-related acts beyond simple possession for personal use.
