NC Raise the Age 12/1/19: Why is a NC 16 year old's 1st nonviolent misdemeanor(Offense 3550) charge in adult court online?

That's not entirely correct. Although the law was passed in 2017, it did not take effect until December 1st. So a 16-year-old in 2017 would still be charged as an adult and therefore everything related to criminal charges is public.
