Misdemeanor Offenses Are Heard In District Court
In North Carolina, misdemeanor offenses are heard in district court. They are generally defined as crimes that result in a sentence of less than one year incarceration. Our criminal defense attorney can use the circumstances of your misdemeanor case or mitigating factors, such as a strong support system, to reduce the penalties you will face. Under most circumstances, our lawyer is able to reduce a potential jail sentence to probation. It is important to note that minimal jail time is a possibility, especially if you already have a criminal record.
