North Carolina Misdemeanor Crimes

From simple assault to certain drug possession crimes, North Carolina Criminal Law has a number of crimes that are considered misdemeanors.

Though not as serious as North Carolina Felonies, North Carolina Misdemeanor convictions carry with it consequences and social stigmas that are best to be avoided.  Even a charge as simple as trespassing qualifies as a misdemeanor, and a conviction would carry with it a requirement to report on any job or school application that requests the information.  Additionally, there are certain North Carolina Misdemeanor Convictions that will result in the loss of the right to own or possess firearms.  Even the installation of a Domestic Violence Protective Order requires that you do not own or possess a firearm while it is in effect.
