EDWARDS & BROUGHTON PRINTING COMPANY
ENTERED ACCORDING TO ACT OF CONGRESS,
IN THE YEAR 1908,
BY THOMAS J. JEROME,
IN THE OFFICE OF THE LIBRARIAN OF CONGRESS,
JUL 1 3 1932
The favorable reception accorded the first and second editions of THE NORTH CAROLINA CRIMINAL CODE AND DIGEST by the legal profession has to some extent justified the getting out of a third edition. In this edition much care has been taken in trying to correct errors and supply omissions occurring in the first and second editions, the object being to make this work a complete guide to the criminal law of the state.
Owing to the fact that our criminal statutes are mixed indiscriminately throughout both volumes of The Revisal with statutes pertaining exclusively to civil matters, much difficulty has been experienced in grouping our criminal statutory law under appropriate titles. Many decisions are also of such a character that they might be very appropriately cited under different statutes, thus requiring that they be many times duplicated; but, in order to avoid duplicating the citations as far as possible, each case has been placed under the statute where it seemed most appropriate, and cross-references used as a guide, which it is hoped will prove sufficient.
No forms have been given except the forms for making requisitions recommended by the INTERSTATE EXTRADITION CONFERENCE held in New York in 1887, which have been adopted by the Governor of North Carolina as well as by most, if not all, the other states. These forms have been given for the reason that lawyers often have to act in a great hurry in securing extradition papers, and they have no time to apply for blank forms or to study the preparation of such forms. The rules to be observed in making requisitions accompany the forms.
The number of each statute as found in The Revisal of 1905 will be found in parenthesis opposite the number adopted in this book. THOMAS J. JEROME.
