We offer our experience to help clients through this difficult process and minimize the consequences of a criminal charge. Our attorneys will aggressively defend your case and attempt to avoid or reduce your criminal penalties, which can include fines, probation, or jail time.
Assault and battery can be a misdemeanor or felony in North or South Carolina. The penalties can vary from a small fine and 30 days in jail to a maximum penalty of ten or more years in prison.
Many factors can determine the severity of your assault charges, such as:
- The type of injuries sustained by the other party
- Whether you have a previous assault conviction
- The gender or occupation of the victim
- Whether a deadly weapon was used in the assault
Our attorneys can argue for a reduced sentence in some cases. The issue of self-defense is also a major factor in many assault and battery cases and could be critical to your legal defense.
Our criminal law attorneys can make sure you present the strongest possible defense to your assault charges. Call King Law at 888-748-KING (5464) to set up a consultation to discuss your case.
Breaking and Entering
Breaking and entering charges can lead to very serious penalties in North and South Carolina. The prosecution may even pursue felony charges when certain facts are present in your case.
For example, the issue of criminal intent can be critical to your case. If the prosecution argues that you illegally entered a home with an intent to commit a felony, your breaking and entering case could lead to first-degree burglary charges, which come with much more severe penalties.
Our criminal law attorneys can help you argue the issue of criminal intent and seek a reduced sentence in your case. We can negotiate a plea deal on your behalf or take your case to trial if necessary.
Don’t risk your freedom—consult with the criminal law attorneys at King Law if you’ve been charged with breaking and entering in North or South Carolina.
Drug Possession and Paraphernalia
Drug possession charges can lead to fines, jail time, and a conviction on your criminal record. Our criminal defense attorneys can help you argue for a reduced sentence or attempt to avoid jail time in some cases.
The penalties for drug possession can be quite severe for certain types of drugs. Even a first offense for possession of heroin or cocaine can lead to a significant prison sentence. If you have multiple offenses on your record, a simple possession charge could become a felony.
Our criminal defense attorneys also understand that you may need additional help if you are dealing with drug addiction. We can provide information about counseling, substance abuse assessments, as well as outpatient and inpatient treatment options.
Contact King Law to request a consultation with a criminal law attorney to discuss your drug possession case.
You may be able to seek an expungement for certain misdemeanors or felonies on your criminal record. Our attorneys can explain the process and tell you whether your offenses may qualify.
Waiting periods may apply before you can seek expungement of certain offenses. For example, you must generally wait five years in North Carolina before seeking expungement of a non-violent misdemeanor and ten years for a non-violent felony. Some cases are not eligible for expungement.
Once an offense is expunged, it will no longer be visible on your criminal background check. Contact our criminal law attorneys to discuss your case and for assistance with the expungement process.
Fraud and “White-Collar” Crimes
White-collar crimes include bank fraud, mail and wire fraud, embezzlement, money laundering, and other crimes. The penalties for these crimes can include fines, house arrest, probation, restitution of stolen funds, and jail time. These crimes can also have a negative impact on your livelihood, professional reputation, and future employment prospects.
Our attorneys understand the importance of a strong defense against white-collar crime charges. Even if you have not yet been charged with a crime, you should strongly consider talking to a criminal law attorney if you are being questioned by authorities or if your business is being investigated.
Call King Law at 888-748-KING (5464) to schedule your consultation with a criminal law attorney and get help with white-collar crime charges.
Theft and Robbery
Theft crimes can range from a simple shoplifting charge to a felony burglary offense. Regardless of what offense you’ve been charged with, your criminal law attorney should provide a strong defense to avoid or minimize the penalties and negative consequences associated with a theft charge.
Even a non-violent theft can result in a lengthy prison sentence if the stolen property is valued over a certain amount. Our criminal defense attorneys will fight to reduce your charges or seek a lesser sentence.
A theft or robbery charge can put your freedom and reputation at risk. Call King Law at 888-748-KING (5464) to make sure you present the strongest possible defense against these charges.
