My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to provide general information regarding your question.
For the NC Habitual Felon law, the law dictates that an offense is a "felony" for NC Habitual Felon law purposes if the offense is/was a felony in the state in which their was a plea/finding of guilt.
So this means that if someone has felony convictions in Florida (that are considered misdemeanors in NC), those offenses DO count as felonies in NC.
If you would like to review the law, it can be found here: http://www.ncga.state.nc.us/EnactedLegislation/Statutes/PDF/ByArticle/Chapter_14/Article_2A.pdf
So, in essence, the answer to your question would be "yes." Because you had convictions in Florida that were felonies, they would count as felonies in NC under the Habitual Felon law, even though they are only misdemeanors in NC.
