Assault is defined in North Carolina as an unlawful touching or battery, or a show of force or violence that puts a reasonable person in fear of harm. An accusation of assault should be taken seriously. If you are convicted of assault in North Carolina, consequences can include fines, jail, and probation. An assault conviction on your record can keep you from getting the job you want, prevent you from being able to pursue a college education, and stop you from volunteering at your children’s schools. Similarly, having a domestic violence order or no-contact order against you can have serious consequences, including preventing you from owning a firearm.
