However, it’s still very important to hire an experienced criminal lawyer to handle your misdemeanor case. An experienced North Carolina Law firm like the King Law Firm, will guide you through every stop of the legal process and will increase your chances of obtaining a successful result in court.

Types of crimes for a Class A1 Misdemeanor: assault with a deadly weapon, assault inflicting serious injury, assault on a female or a government employee, violation of a restraining order and sexual battery.

Class 1 misdemeanor carries a maximum penalty of 120 days in jail and a discretionary fine.

If You Are Charged With A Misdeameanor Crime. 

Your case will be heard by a district court judge.  At that point you may choose to negotiate with the district attorney for a lesser charge or you may decide to plea not guilty and request a trial. It may be possible to request to have your case dismissed depending on your past criminal history, or possible serve community service or attend a substance abuse program that might result in the judge dismissing your case.

If you should decide to request a trial, the district attorney must prove that you are guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. Misdemeanor cases are heard before a district court judge.  The judge will hear all of the evidence and will decide if the district attorney has proved that you are guilty of the crime. If the judge finds that you are not guilty you are free to go. If the judge finds that you are guilty of the crime, he will normally sentence you at that time. The sentence can range from a small fine to a prison sentence.

The King Law Firm has many years of experience helping those who have been charged with misdemeanor crimes. Our goal is to assure you receive fair treatment and, in many cases, we are able to have cases dismissed due to lack of or insufficient evidence.
