Types of Assault in North Carolina

There is no uniform defense that anyone accused of assault uses to defend their rights. The attorney at The Trevor J. Avery Law Firm has successfully litigated a range of assault cases for our clients.

Punishments for misdemeanor assault cases depend on the class of the misdemeanor and the previous convictions of the accused. Typically, the accused can face a jail sentence of up to 60 days and a fine of up to $1,000. This can vary depending on the details of the case, including whether there was a serious injury, if it involved the use of a deadly weapon, or if the alleged assault occurred against a protected class, such as a woman, child, state employee, or school employee.

What is the Penalty for Simple Assault in North Carolina?

The penalty for simple assault in North Carolina is a Class 2 misdemeanor. If you have no prior convictions, the sentence could involve probation or up to 30 days in jail. If you have been convicted of this offense in the past, the judge could sentence you to 60 days in jail, and you may be required to pay a fine of up to $1,000. A simple assault is also considered the least serious assault offense and involves unlawfully assaulting another person.
