I recently finished an Administration of Justice Bulletin about the habitual felon, violent habitual felon, and habitual breaking and entering laws. It’s a substantial expansion and revision of a paper I wrote in 2008. I creatively named it North Carolina’s Habitual Felon, Violent Habitual Felon, and Habitual Breaking and Entering Laws. It’s available here, for free, in PDF format. I hope it’s useful. As always, I welcome comments and feedback of any kind about the paper. It doesn’t address the brand-new armed habitual felon law, created by S.L. 2013-369, effective October 1, 2013, but that law is patterned after the habitual felon law so many of the interpretive issues will be the same.
