Felonies - JDW LawFelonies are the most serious crimes you can be charged with in North Carolina. If you are facing a felony charge, you are certainly going to need expert legal help to ensure your best possible outcome. The Law Offices of James D. Williams, Jr. can walk you through the difficult experience of facing serious charges like a felony.

In North Carolina, whether you’re in Durham, Raleigh, the coast, or the mountains, the same structured sentencing applies. There are different levels of felonies, with different sentencing based on this structure of classes of A through I. Class A felonies are the most serious, with a maximum penalty of death or life in prison. There are only two crimes that are Class A, though – first degree murder, and unlawful use of weapons of mass destruction.

The least serious felonies do not have the potential for the death penalty. Class H and I felonies, like property and drug crimes, often do not even require jail time. The sentence for a felony doesn’t only rely on these structured sentences, though. Deals with the prosecutor and considerations of prior records also come into play. If you are being charged with a felony in North Carolina, trust “Butch” Williams and his expert team to stand in your corner.
