Carteret County Assault Lawyer
Legislation for the state of North Carolina is extremely strict in regards to assault. Chapter 14 of the 2009 North Carolina Code deals exclusively with assault charges – everything from simple assault to more detailed areas of the law, such as assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill or inflict serious injury. The punishments associated with this area of the law will depend on the circumstances of the arrest itself – for example, malicious maiming (§14-30) is considered to be a Class C felony, however, assault by pointing a gun (§14-34) is classified as a Class A1 misdemeanor.
