Types of Assault in North Carolina

There is no uniform defense that anyone accused of assault uses to defend their rights. The attorneys at Welch and Avery have 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.
