Speak With Us Before Talking To The Police

North Carolina is tough on violent crimes. Crimes of violence are punished severely, and seemingly minor altercations can result in devastating circumstances for everyone involved. An example of this is a marital disagreement that gets blown out of proportion, resulting in one of the spouses filing assault charges (such as assault on female) against the other spouse.

If you face assault charges in North Carolina, it is important to speak with an experienced criminal defense attorney before speaking with law enforcement or anyone else.

At Randall & Stump, PLLC, we can help you understand your rights, the charges you face and potential defense strategies that may be available. Our criminal defense attorneys have ex misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the nature of the act and the harm that was suffered by the alleged victim. Misdemeanor assault is punished under N.C.G.S. 14-33 and may result in a sentence ranging from probation to an active sentence, depending on what level is charged.

Felony assault — which typically involves a deadly weapon, intent to kill, intent to cause serious injury or serious injury being suffered — is punished under a completely different sentencing structure. For example, assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill is a Class E felony. Under North Carolina's Structured Sentencing, a Class E felony is punished as seen here.
