  1. Sounds like you were convicted of a misdemeanor.


  2. While larceny in NC can qualify as a misdemeanor or felony, the higher probability is that you were convicted of a misdemeanor. The punishment received is your biggest clue assuming you did not keep any paperwork. A felony larceny conviction usually carries three years of probation (often supervised) while a misdemeanor is often punished by a fine, community service or probation for 18 months.
