My question involves criminal law for the state of: NC
Neighbor fired a bebe gun at me. He has a prior record of several minor offenses in the state of MD. Has served jail time up there; not sure if he's still on probation. No charges/convictions that I can find since he's been in NC. I would like to file a statement with the Magistrate but am concerned about my level of involvement and the possible outcomes will be. I am pretty sure he will be arrested, but then what? I looked up the penalties and they range depending on what level of misdemeanor the person is charged with. Can anyone describe the process? I don't want this to turn into the Hatfields and McCoy's; this person seems relatively unstable (34 years old and firing bebe guns at people?!).
