Are Violent Crimes Misdemeanors or Felonies?

Whether a violent crime is a misdemeanor felony depends on the alleged action(s) and its circumstances. Offenses like murder and forceable rape are some of the most severe felony offenses in North Carolina. Other crimes like assault with a deadly weapon, manslaughter, and armed robbery are also felony offenses. 

Fewer violent crimes are misdemeanors in our state. Simple assault, sexual battery, and child abuse are examples of violent crimes that can be misdemeanors.

Violent Crime Penalties

You could face up to 60 days of imprisonment for a first-time misdemeanor conviction. The sentence will increase for repeat offenses. Felony violent crimes come with penalties that range from months to life in prison. State courts use a complex sentencing grid when determining sentences for violent felony offenses. The grid accounts for the specific crime, aggravating and mitigating factors, and prior convictions.
