Why could my assault arrest land me a felony conviction?

Sometimes arguments escalate, tempers get heated and what began as a disagreement turns into a full-blown physical altercation. Police are called and the before you can cool off, you find yourself in the back seat of a cop car. If you are facing assault charges, you could be facing misdemeanor charges and, in terms of consequence, a slap on the wrist. Or you could be facing felony charges, and that could mean a lifetime of consequences stemming from that conviction.

If you find yourself in this position, it is imperative that you do not talk to the police without someone there on your side, familiar with what will ensue. Obtain the representation of an attorney who will protect your future well-being and who has a track record of success in violent crimes and criminal defense.

Your charges could range from a misdemeanor to a felony charge, based on one or multiple factors. Was a weapon of any sort employed? Was the other person injured? If so, how bad are his or her injuries? Was your intention to cause severe injury or imply the fear of serious injury or death? Was the other person in the altercation a teacher, firefighter, police officer or a member of any race or group that could lead to your actions being labeled a crime of hate?

Objectives you may not have even considered could work toward your detriment if you answered yes to any of the questions mentioned above. The danger to your livelihood is real, and the counsel of a North Carolina criminal defense attorney may be vital to the outcome of your case.
