Supply NC Misdemeanor Attorney - Shoplifting Larceny Lawyer
As in most states, crimes in North Carolina as well tear into misdemeanors and felonies.
The term misdemeanor is believed to origin in the late 15th century from mis- which was a prefix for wrong, and Middle English demenure or demeanor which meant handle, manage, conduct.
Compared to felonies, misdemeanors are the "lesser" criminal act—they are generally punished less severely than felonies.

A Class 3 misdemeanor carries a maximum active sentence of 20 days and a Class A-1 misdemeanor carries a maximum active sentence of 150 days of imprisonment.
