WHAT IS A CLASS A FELONY : SENTENCE AND PENALTIES FOR CLASS E FELONY

North Carolina’s felonies can be classified into different “classes” that are used to determine the extent of the punishment to be given to a certain person. Class E felonies are the fifth-to-the-highest in the class ranking..

This felony falls under the mid-level felony, and may include violent assaults, involuntary manslaughter, and common-law robbery. These also carry the possibility of intensive probation. However, some convictions on these circumstances also have lengthy prison sentences. But a criminal lawyer can helps you. Class E felonies may involve:

Child molestation

Child molestation is a crime that involves a range of indecent or sexual activities between an adult and a child. A “child” in this case is someone normally under the age of 14. When it comes to psychiatry, these acts are commonly referred to as “pedophilia.”

Assault with a deadly weapon (intent to kill)

An assault with a deadly weapon with the intent to kill occurs when a person commits an assault on another person with a deadly weapon with the intention to kill. An “assault” is an act or attempt or the appearance of an attempt that will injure another person physically. This is seen with a show of force or menace of violence that will be enough to put any reasonable person afraid of any personal injury.

SENTENCING, PRIOR CRIMINAL RECORD

Class E felony: 15 to 63 months

For any felony offense aside from Class A felonies, North Carolina’s courts also have to assess a person’s prior criminal record level. These convictions are worth “points,” which can determine the overall sentence of a person.

Each prior Class E, F, or G felony conviction: 4 points

Each prior misdemeanor conviction: 1 point

STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS

Others may ask about what are called “statute of limitations.” These give prosecutors only a limited amount of time to file criminal charges. Once someone commits a crime, prosecutors must file the charges within a legally established limit. If a prosecutor misses this, the charge can no longer be filed.

However, North Carolina is one of the very few states that do not have such a time limit.

Those who would like to know more about the specifics of crimes in North Carolina may contact lawyers and legal experts from nearby courts for consultations.
