We leave no stone unturned when defending misdemeanors as we understand the effect a conviction can have on your life.
While misdemeanors are less serious than felonies and, as such, carry lighter sentences and fines, they should still be taken very seriously. At Tarantino Law, PLLC, our criminal law attorneys understand how to build strong cases to get you the most favorable outcome possible. Misdemeanors fall into different classes with each having a range of sentences set by North Carolina criminal law statutes. The classes are A1, 1, 2, and 3, with A1 being the most serious and 3 being the least. In addition, prior convictions can affect how long of a sentence and what type of punishment is involved.
The ultimate goal is to get misdemeanors dropped or get our client acquitted. Should that not be possible given the merits of the case, we’ll do our best to get active punishment (jail time) off the table and make the case for a fine, community service, probation, or a stay in a drug treatment facility. We also make certain that the prosecutor has filed charges within the 2-year statute of limitations that applies to most misdemeanors. If they haven’t, we move for an immediate dismissal of the charges.
