I was charged with a dwi in NC(2013) It is a unique circumstance where I was a passenger in a vehicle that was pulled over for speeding. The driver was arrested for a dwi and taken away and I was told not to drive. I was then pulled over for operating the vehicle about 30 minutes after the original driver was taken away. The original driver was let off of her convicted dwi on the basis of the police conducting an illegal stop.
