Although North Carolina statutes do not mention “groping,” feeling up a person against their will is indeed a serious crime. A conviction could land offenders in prison.
Touching a person’s intimate body parts against their will is considered sexual battery. It’s covered in North Carolina General Statutes 14-27.33. The law states that a person is guilty of sexual battery if they engage in “sexual contact” with another person forcibly against their will for the purposes of sexual arousal, sexual abuse, or sexual gratification.
A person can also be found guilty of sexual battery [...]
In July of 2021, 61-year-old man residing in Citris County, Florida was charged with multiple counts of child sexual assault charges that took place in Lincoln County, North Carolina. The Lincoln County and Citrus County Law Enforcement agencies worked together to arrest the man at his home. He was placed in a Florida detention center as a fugitive from North Carolina. The man refused extradition to North Carolina from Florida. However, an extradition hearing was held, and he was ordered to return to North Carolina, where he was jailed in a North Carolina [...]
Break-ups have been hard since the beginning of human history. Because of this, exes have come up with plenty of unique and petty ways of hurting each other. Most of our “revenge” actions wouldn’t merit a call to law enforcement: being slow to return someone’s book, ignoring calls, shutting the door extra-loud…
However, the proliferation of the internet andsmartphones has given far more of us the power to not only take intimate images and videos, but share them as well. When this is done without the permission of the person or people [...]
While the laws in each state differ, every state requires that law enforcement be provided on the local level with information about individuals convicted of sex offenses. This is also true for North Carolina, whether those offenses happened in this state or not.
If you live in North Carolina and have been convicted of a crime that places you on the sex offender list in another state, then North Carolina requires you to register here as well.
Here’s what you need to know about the sex offender registry in North Carolina such as [...]
Most people consider sex trafficking to be a far-away concept, not something that could occur right in their back yard. North Carolina law enforcement, however, knows that sex trafficking happens all around us.

Here’s what you need to know about sex trafficking in North Carolina, what it [...]
My deepest thanks to the team at Schlosser and Pritchett. What might have seemed a hopeless case to some was not to this team. My traffic violation was dismissed when even I didn't think it had a chance. Well done folks and rest assured I am advocate of your firm. Thanks, Jim
I made the terrible mistake of driving drunk and got a DWI. And due to my high BAC I was facing some very serious penalties. After much "lawyer shopping" I decided to go with Mr. Pritchett. He made it very clear we faced an uphill battle and in all likelihood i would be convicted. Nevertheless, we came up with a plan and when favorable situations presented themselves Mr. Pritchett knew exactly how to use them to our advantage. Because of his thorough knowledge of how the system works he was able to get my DWI charge dismissed on June 8, 2018. I have learned my lesson and will NEVER drink and drive again but for those that make the mistake I highly recommend Mr. Pritchett. Thank you so much to everyone at Sclosser and Pritchett!
I had a traffic case and they were willing to help me. I was told they would get the ticket moved down to a lesser charge. Thet actually had the whole case dismissed.
