Felony Malicious Maiming is a Serious Offense in North Carolina

Be careful if you ever try to put out the eye of another person. It’s a Class C felony in North Carolina, although it must be malicious. Accidental maimings don’t count under this statute.

Here’s the statute:

N.C.G.S. 14-30. Malicious maiming.
If any person shall, of malice aforethought, unlawfully cut out or disable the tongue or put out an eye of any other person, with intent to murder, maim or disfigure, the person so offending, his counselors, abettors and aiders, knowing of and privy to the offense, shall be punished as a Class C felon.
