Assault charges in North Carolina can range from misdemeanors to serious felonies depending on the type and severity of the conduct that is being alleged. Along with that, the punishments for assault convictions vary widely from simple fines and community service to long jail sentences.
For example, a simple assault charge is a class 2 misdemeanor and can carry a maximum of 30 days in jail. But a felony assault with a deadly weapon with the intent to kill charge can cause a person to serve 15-98 months of jail time.
Laura M. Baker can assist you in determining if the charges are appropriate and if they can be lessened or disputed in any way. Certain defenses like self-defense, the defense of another person, and sometimes even that the state’s victim consented to the assault can cause your case to be reduced, dismissed, or have you found not guilty after a trial.
As in all cases, Laura M. Baker will make sure that she knows your story, looks at the evidence, talks to the witnesses, views any body-camera footage and examines your case from all angles before making a decision on how to proceed and what defense is best. You can also help prepare your own case: make sure you document what happened soon after the event, take photographs of any injuries you may have sustained in the assault/altercation, gather camera footage of the event if any, etc.
