What Penalties Could You Face?

While North Carolina law has guidelines on sentences for different classes of felonies, your sentence in part will be based on your prior criminal history. However, knowing the range of possible sentences can be helpful. You could be facing the following prison sentences:

  • Class I felony. While the sentencing range is three months to one year in prison, you are more likely to receive a sentence of six months to one year.
  • Class H felony. You could face a sentence between 6 and 30 months in prison.
  • Trafficking felony conviction. Depending on the quantity of ecstasy found and what class felony you are convicted of, you could be sentenced to between 70 to 225 months in prison.
