- Breaking and entering
- Larceny after breaking and entering

Some of these property crimes can overlap with other criminal charges we manage. No matter what you’re charged with, you can find peace of mind working with us as we’ll fight diligently to protect your interests and future.
Value Of Property Can Often Determine The Penalty
Like many other crimes, property crime penalties can vary depending on the severity. In many cases, the severity of the crime can heavily rely on the value of the items damaged or stolen. Depending on the circumstances, a property crime charge can be a misdemeanor if the items stolen or damaged are under $1,000.
However, those found guilty of misdemeanor property crimes could still have to spend up to four months in prison. A property crime becomes a penalty charge when the items damaged or stolen are worth more $1,000. In these instances, those found guilty of felony property crimes may have to spend more than three years in prison.
The consequences for property crimes in North Carolina can be steep. However, there is a lot you can do to reduce the severity of your charge or have it dropped entirely. Call us at 910-250-9289 today so we can learn more about your case and help you develop a tailored defense strategy.
