While there was no reported injury in the incident, the driver in question faces severe penalties. If you or someone you know ever finds themselves in a similar situation, we suggest you consult with an experienced Raleigh criminal attorney .
A conviction to a felony charge can lead to a minimum jail time of three months. If the prosecution team is able to establish that the driver had intent to kill or seriously injure another person, he is likely to spend 15 months in prison at the very least. Once convicted of a felony, North Carolina laws dictate that he will be prohibited to carry a weapon ever (open or concealed).
