Hi, I'm James Cummings with the law firm at Cummings & Cummings and I wanted to talk to you today about some changes in the law of assaulting a law enforcement officer. Under a new law just passed in North Carolina, if you assault a law enforcement officer and cause any physical injury to that officer, you will be charged with the class A of felony. No longer is required to prove serious injury but rather any bumps, scrapes or bruises to that law enforcement officer results in a felony charge. If you, a friend or a loved one has been charged with assaulting a law-enforcement officer, give us a call today at Cummings & Cummings. The initial consultation is always free and confidential.
