In Greensboro Assault Attorney Explains Habitual Misdemeanor Assaultby GWAO

Greensboro assault attorney, Chad Garrett, clears up misconceptions regarding Habitual (Felony) Assaults.

This felony charge caused much confusion and distress, as it is a misdemeanor charge that the prosecution elevates to a felony.

Habitual misdemeanor assault requires two or more prior felonies or misdemeanor assaults within 15 years of the offense date.  If the defendant commits an assault under N.C.G.S. 14-33, and actually causes physical injury, or an assault under N.C.G.S. 14-34 (assault by pointing a gun), they may be punished as a Class H felon.
