The sentence for someone with a prior criminal record may be higher than the minimum sentencing requirements for a Class F felony in North Carolina. Each prior offense, whether a misdemeanor or a felony, carries a point value, as explained by CriminalDefenseLawyer.com. A Class F felony carries a four-point value. When determining sentencing, the person's prior convictions are assigned a point rating. This rating determines the record level. The higher the record level, the larger the sentence is. CriminalDefenseLawyer.com notes that Class F felonies also fall into three disposition ranges: presumptive, aggravated and mitigated. A presumptive Class F felony is a felony in which there are no additional sentencing factors to consider. These are standard offenses that receive standard sentences. An aggravated Class F felony is one that the court considers especially cruel or heinous or that involves a very young or very old person. A mitigated felony is a crime for which there are mitigating factors that can reduce the sentence, including whether the person believed the crime was legal and whether the person took responsibility for the action.
