Abstract:
This bulletin discusses two closely related provisions of North Carolina law that specifically target repeat serious offenders: the habitual felon laws and the violent habitual felon laws. The bulletin is a \"user's manual\" for these provisions. It discusses which offenses can support charges under the habitual felon and violent habitual felon laws, the procedures that apply to such prosecutions, how sentencing works in such cases, and other practical issues. The bulletin will help judges and lawyers to answer questions that regularly arise during habitual felon and violent habitual felon cases and to recognize areas of the law in which unanswered questions remain.

Abstract:
In North Carolina the commonly stated rule, for both criminal and civil cases in both superior and district court, is that a judgment or order affecting substantial rights may not be entered without the consent of the parties (1) after the session of court has expired, or (2) while the judge is out of the county or district. Actually, there are many instances when orders may be entered out-of-session and out-of-county, especially in civil cases. This bulletin describes the instances when court orders may be entered out-of-term, out-of-session, and out-of-county.
