An individual was sentenced by North Carolina law under GS

This answer was rated:

An individual was sentenced by North Carolina law under GS 148-49.1, youthful offender. I have three questions.
1. Does the conviction diappear in 10 yrs?

2. Can a committed youthful offender sentence be used under NC law as a prior for a sentence enhancement for a habitual felony offender?

3. What are the governing statutes?
When did the conviction under GS 148.49.1 occur?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
On or about May of 1980.
I will research this and get back to you. The law in question has been repealed and it will take a few minutes to research where its equivalent now resides in the statutes. I will respond as soon as possible.
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
OK. Thanks.

I apologize but my search engine will not allow me to go back to the statute as it existed at the time of the sentencing, and as I need to review the language of the statute as it was at that time to answer your question, I will opt out so that another expert can try to do so.

Hi,

I can't answer your question definitively either, but this issue, while interesting, is probably not particularly unique. If you haven't tried this already, you might simply call your local public defender's office and ask them. I'm reasonably certain that they'd have to be familiar with the problem and should be in a position to cite statutory authority and/or NC case law.
