Assault by strangulation is a relatively new felony assault under North Carolina law, which alleges that the perpetrator attempts to strangle the alleged victim. It most often occurs as a result of a domestic altercation and may contribute to the issuance of a domestic violence 50B protective order. Assault by strangulation is also sometimes charged along with sex crimes and other violent crimes.
Depending on the circumstances surrounding your arrest, our experienced criminal defense lawyer may be able to get the charge of assault by strangulation reduced to a misdemeanor assault charge, thereby reducing the severe penalties associated with a felony conviction. Of course, in some investigations, these charges are filed against innocent people. If you are innocent, and become part of an investigation, it is important that you have the benefit of experienced trial attorneys who know how to win jury trials.
