North Carolina Citizens for Felony Murder Rule Change
blocks_image
is a group of concerned citizens whose goal is the repeal of the Felony Murder Rule or, as a minimum, to have the law significantly amended so that the penalties possible are proportionate to the actual crime and similar in duration to other North Carolina murder laws.
As currently written, there are only two penalties allowed for a felony murder defendant: death, or life in prison without possibility of parole.

Please browse this Website to learn more about the implications, which can be tragic, of the felony murder rule, the most powerful law on North Carolina's books, which allows prosecutors to gain convictions for first-degree murder without having to prove intent to murder.
