Class 2 Misdemeanor NC

Examples of Class 2 Misdemeanors that our office handles include:

  • Simple Assault/Assault and Battery/Affray

  • Standing/Sitting/Lying on Highway 

What are the consequences for a Class 2 Misdemeanor?

The consequences for a Class 2 Misdemeanor depend on your record level. If you have one prior criminal conviction, you are considered a record level I. If you have between one and four prior criminal convictions, you are considered a record level II. If you have five or more prior criminal convictions, you are considered a record level III.

Offenders who are a record level I may not be sentenced to any jail time. In fact, generally, first time offenders who are considered record level I for sentencing purposes will also qualify for a dismissal as part of a deferred prosecution. Depending on the type of charge, you may qualify for the First Offender’s program which involves completing 75 hours of community service for a dismissal. Or, you may qualify for the 90/96 program which involves completing substance abuse treatment.

Offenders who are record level II may not be sentenced to jail, but may be sentenced to probation, community service or simply asked to pay a fine.

Offenders who are a record level III may be sentenced to up to 60 days in jail at the judge’s discretion, or may be sentenced to probation, community service or simply asked to pay a fine.

Marijuana Charges in Raleigh

shutterstock_182015444.jpg

It's easy enough to argue how misguided the "War on Drugs" is. When talking about marijuana in North Carolina, it's that much easier. Cannabis grows on a plant, and can be used unaltered by man. Its negative physiological effects are mild, and it certainly poses no greater threat to society than alcohol or tobacco.

Yet our federal and most state governments have chosen to make the mere possession of pot or weed illegal, with even greater penalties for its sale and cultivation. Trafficking marijuana can lead to mandatory minimum prison time and millions of dollars in fees. As a result of our government's crackdown on this harmless plant, great harm has befallen many, and may come to you if you face any kind of marijuana charge.

Top Raleigh DWI Attorney, Call Kristi Haddock 919-585-1486

Raleigh Criminal Defense Lawyer Kristi Haddock.jpg

Attorney Kristi Haddock can help if you have been arrested in Raleigh for DUI, DWI public intoxication, domestic violence, shoplifting, or any other criminal offense. Kristi is a local Wake County lawyer so she can sometimes appear for you in Court if you do not live in the area and are just visiting Raleigh or on vacation.

Out of state residents who visit the area sometimes are cited or arrested for DUI, drunk driving, DWI,  driving under the influence or speeding/traffic violations in the Raleigh area and do not understand their rights and options regarding the case. North Carolina law does allow a local attorney to appear in Court on behalf of a client for certain cases cases. The benefit of retaining a local lawyer to defend an alcohol related charge is tremendous. First of all, a court hearing is mandatory in all DUI cases if you want to try and get a limited driving privilege during the normal 30 day suspension that comes with a North Carolina DUI. As a local Raleigh DUI Lawyer, Kristi Haddock can file the necessary applications for a limited driving privilege court hearing.  The normal suspension for DUI or DWI charges is 30 days.  A Limited driving privilege can often be had after 10 days have passed. Furthermore, as is often the case, she can make all necessary appearances in the Wake County district court for the initial limited driving privilege after 10 days have passed.  Then she can go to court after 30 days have passed to handle getting you your license back once the initial suspension has ended.

Underage defendants face particularly difficult challenges. A simple ticket for drinking alcohol in public may seem not to be a serious matter, however a conviction could mean a license suspension by the North Carolina Department of motor Vehicles. Raleigh Police unfortunately target tourists and out of town visitors, many of whom are under 21 and in college or the military. One typical scenario is when law enforcement observes large groups of young people walking downtown on Fayetteville street and they stop to check whether alcohol is present, this encounter invariably results in tickets being issued or an arrest being made. In this situation, a Raleigh Criminal Defense Attorney can help with the criminal case and for many people that also includes a legal expungement.

Raleigh Traffic & Speeding Ticket Lawyers

Raleigh Traffic & Speeding Ticket Lawyers

It’s not “just” a speeding ticket, and it’s far more than a reckless driving ticket – traffic tickets can mean thousands of dollars in increased insurance costs. While a single traffic ticket can raise your insurance rates and make you a target for police, several traffic violations will change your life dramatically.

In North Carolina, traffic offenses can encompass many kinds of violations. Convictions for speeding, reckless driving, illegal turns, driving without a valid license, leaving the scene of an accident, running a red light and other offenses can mean higher insurance rates, points against your driver’s license, fines, loss of driving privileges and other penalties. If you’ve been charged with a traffic violation, don’t discount it as a minor inconvenience. You need the advice of an experienced Raleigh traffic & speeding ticket attorney at The Law Offices of Wiley Nickel, PLLC.

Consequences of North Carolina Traffic Tickets

What can happen if you’re arrested for a traffic violation? Although many people imagine that they might just pay a ticket and be done with an offense, it often isn’t that simple. Of course, North Carolina traffic penalties vary with violations, but some of the consequences you could face include:

-          Driver’s license points/DMV Points

-          Increased insurance rates/increased insurance premiums

-          Mandatory driver safety courses (4 and 8 hours)

-          Community service

-          Jail sentences

-          Driver’s license suspension or revocation

-          Payment of fines/Payment of court costs

-          Payment of restitution

The Law Offices of Wiley Nickel – Reputable Raleigh Traffic Ticket Attorneys

Getting a traffic ticket in North Carolina can be a serious ordeal. Not only will it affect your driving record, but it will also impact your wallet. In addition to fines and court costs, insurance companies have their own points systems, separate from the DMV point system. So your insurance rates could skyrocket for common violations like speeding.

If you want to lessen the impact of a traffic violation, contact the Raleigh traffic ticket attorneys at The Law Offices of Wiley Nickel. We have successfully handled cases involving everything from speeding tickets to DWI/DUI to DWLR.

Call 919-585-1486 or use the convenient online form at the right of the page to submit your information, and we will contact you right away for a free consultation.  Our office is located in Cary, NC and we handle traffic ticket cases in Wake County and Chatham County, North Carolina.

Raleigh Marijuana Possession Attorney

hammer-802298_1920.jpg

Protecting Those Charged With Pot Related Crimes – North Carolina Cannabis Possession Lawyers

The trend in many states is toward decriminalizing marijuana possession and other pot related crimes through laws that have legalized medical marijuana. Two states recently have even legalized cannabis for personal use. Despite this liberalization of marijuana laws throughout the U.S., North Carolina has not joined in this movement to fully decriminalize marijuana. If you are arrested for marijuana possession in Raleigh or throughout North Carolina, you can face very serious penalties. Under North Carolina law, possession of any quantity of marijuana is still a criminal offense within the state.

Severe Consequences of a Weed Possession Conviction in North Carolina

The severity of penalties for pot possession is based on the quantity of the drug in your possession when you are arrested. While it is natural to be anxious if you face punishment for possession of pot, this criminal statutes only tells part of the story because there are many other consequences and penalties that may flow from a criminal conviction if you are arrested with marijuana including:

    Community service

    Drug classes

    Public record of a misdemeanor or felony conviction

    Probation

    Loss of certain constitutional rights for felony convictions (i.e. voting and gun ownership)

Even these other formal consequences that flow from a marijuana possession conviction do not provide a complete picture of how one’s life may be affected by a conviction for a pot possession crime. The criminal record you receive can haunt you for years and impact many aspects of your life including employment opportunities, security clearance access, qualification for professional and certain occupational licensing, immigration consequences like removal, denial of student loans and other adverse effects.

If you are facing criminal charges because you were arrested with weed, our experienced North Carolina marijuana possession lawyers may also employ a range of other defense strategies depending on the specific facts of your case, which include the following:

Attacking Evidence of “Possession”: Even if you were arrested with the drugs in your jacket pocket, office, vehicle or close proximity to your person, this does not mean that the drugs did not belong to someone else. We may be able to provide evidence that others had access to where the cannabis was discovered and argue that you did not know that the drugs were present.

Fourth Amendment Challenges to Searches: There are many reasons that a search may be improper based on violations of Fourth Amendment protections. The police may conduct a search without a warrant based on a claimed exception to the warrant requirement that is not justified by the facts. The officers may claim that they did not have time to obtain a warrant because it might have resulted in the destruction of evidence. If the officers have already secured the scene when conducting the search, the claim of “exigent circumstances” may be attacked because there is no longer a basis to claim that the risk of the loss of evidence exists.

Anyone arrested for cannabis offenses in Raleigh or the surrounding areas should immediately speak with a Raleigh cannabis possession attorney. We offer a confidential consultation that is free of charge so that we can evaluate your case and suggest potential defense strategies. Please contact the Law offices of Wiley Nickel, PLLC at 919-585-1486 or email us so that we can start defending your freedom and reputation.  We can also discuss the North Carolina expungement process when you call.

How do I get my case dismissed?

Raleigh Law Firm

How do I get my case dismissed in Wake County?

The first question for many people looking for a Raleigh criminal defense lawyer is “How do I get my case dismissed?” The goal for most people who enter the Wake County courthouse for the first time is (1) a dismissal and (2) an expungement of all public records.

Our first question for potential clients revolves around guilt or innocence. We are an aggressive criminal defense law firm and exercise all legal options for our clients. When your future and reputation are at stake, an experienced Raleigh Attorney makes your rights a priority. We will walk you through your legal options and talk about how a trial will work. In cases where the evidence is on our side the Wake County District Attorney’s Office can agree to dismiss a case ahead of trail.

In other cases there are different deals that involve a dismissal in exchange for doing something. In some cases it could mean a deal for community service for a dismissal. In other cases it could mean doing alcohol/drug classes as part of a deal for a dismissal. Those first offender deals usually range from 6-12 months and involve a dismissal and then an expungement for our clients when they stay out of trouble, pay the costs and do the required action.

The law now allows for unlimited dismissal and not guilty expungements for most people in North Carolina. So if the case results in a dismissal or a not guilty verdict then it’s likely that an expungement is an immediate option. The only real prohibition against dismissal and not guilty expungements involves clients who have active criminal cases or a prior felony conviction. So if you don’t have a felony conviction on your record or an active criminal case you’re likely eligible for an expungement of the charges as soon as the case is dismissed. The first step in figuring out how you may be able to get your case dismissed involves calling a Raleigh Defense Attorney today.

Drug Possession Lawyer in Raleigh NC

Raleigh Drug Crimes Lawyer

Drug Possession Lawyer in Raleigh North Carolina

Not every criminal defense attorney is an experienced drug defense lawyer. If you or a loved one needs a criminal defense lawyer, we are here to help with legal representation. It doesn't matter if it’s a felony or misdemeanor. Drug possession charges in North Carolina are serious charges and require careful consideration. The goal for most clients is a dismissal and then an expungement to clear your reputation.

Possession of drugs like cocaine, marijuana, and even prescription medications such as OxyContin, oxycodone, or opioids could result in active prison terms. For many first offenders it’s possible to avoid jail time or in some cases to avoid a conviction by completing a first offenders program.

That's why it makes sense to call a law office and defense lawyers in Raleigh NC who have courtroom experience. There is just too much at stake not to carefully consider your legal options when asking, "How can a criminal defense lawyer help?"

North Carolina Drug Laws

To see the list of potential North Carolina drug laws, in the order of least severe to most severe (for potential jail time and North Carolina drug penalties), these are the names of those drug crimes:

Simple Possession of Marijuana - less than ½ ounce

Misdemeanor Possession of Marijuana - more than ½ ounce

Misdemeanor Possession of Drug Paraphernalia - Marijuana

Felony Possession of Marijuana - 1.5 ounce to 10 pounds

Felony Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Sell or Distribute

Felony Sale or Delivery of Marijuana

Felony Cultivation of Marijuana

Trafficking Marijuana

Simple possession of marijuana is one of the more common minor drug charges in North Carolina. It is a misdemeanor drug offense and for many it’s a fine only offense.  The real danger for minor drug charges is a conviction that can follow you around and close doors for possible jobs in the future.

It is important to note that alcohol is also a drug, and there are a lot of possession of alcohol offenses in North Carolina. There are other criminal offenses in North Carolina for underage possession of alcohol, sale of alcohol to underage persons, and purchase of alcohol by underage persons (18B-302).

The alcohol laws in North Carolina also prohibit things like:

Giving alcoholic beverages to minors

The purchase, attempt to purchase, or possession of malt beverages or unfortified wine

Purchasing, attempting to purchase, or possession of fortified wine, spirituous liquor, or mixed beverages
