The offender in question is charged with first degree burglary and larceny. No weapons were involved. He has apologized and returned the items stolen back to their owner, and willingly turned himself in to the local sheriff, where he has been detained ever since. He has no prior felony convictions, and claims to genuinely wish to make things right and accept the punishment for his bad decision. I've already researched the consequences of a class D felony in North Carolina, and understand the severity of these charges. However, I would like to know if the defendant could possibly enter a plea bargain and/or, based on his lack of a prior record and efforts to set things right, receive probation/deferred judgement, or any other way of avoiding prison time if he remains on his best behavior.
