North Carolina Felony Sentencing and Collateral Consequences Explored
The Experienced and Savvy Criminal Defense Lawyers of Kurtz & Blum Discuss Felony Sentencing
It is impossible to quickly and easily characterize the punishments for all felony crimes in North Carolina. Each situation depends on the seriousness of the charge and the criminal record of the accused. Sentences can vary from fines and unsupervised probation to years of prison time. The most serious crime in NC is first degree murder. In cases where a defendant is convicted of first degree murder, the only possible punishments are life without parole or the death penalty.
