Sep 2008 I was charged with DWI. I blew a .10 and bonded out. 1st appearance, I req a cont to hire an attorney. My attorney req'd 2 more cont'es just to give me more time with my DL. Then, when the court got backed up & continued my case to an indefinite date. in Oct 2010, I was convicted of a DUI in another county (as 1st offense). Fines, 1 yr license revoc, and comply with alcohol assessment. Then my 1st case was called in Jan 2011, right after I had thought my docket had been lost or somehow I slipped through the cracks. I had moved to No Va, where I didn't need a license and there was no way I could get back for court in NC. Bench Warrant. Now I could get my DL back in a few days, but I want to resolve the warrant and case. What advice would you give me? What penalties to expect?
Ok the first thing you want to do is confirm the warrant is active. Call the jurisdiction where it was issued and ask...
I have never had any criminal charges and only about 2 or 3 driving tickets. I didn't think at the time I was impaired. I was curious why I wasn't released when I blew the legal limit. I am 33 years old and am unfamiliar with the legal system. I know I need a public attorney but is there any chance of a prayer judgement or getting it plee bargained out? what do I face in the way of punishment? my court date is 2 months away and am worried and need advice as to what I should do
You cant get a PJC for a DWI. and if you blew a .08 at the scene but a .12 at the station, the .12 is the only number...
I got a federal DUI on National Parkland and was arrestedby a park ranger, which a 5 gram bag of marijuana. The judge sentenced me 2 years of probation. If I were to choose to forego my probation and just serve my 6 months in prison, what security level prison would I go to?
For a sentence of less than a year on a misdemeanor, in most places you would most likely serve the sentence in your...

I was arrested for a DUI on the 27th/28th of September. My BAC was .08. I was not held in prison and released after going to the magistrate. I am taking this case to court and will do everything I can to fight it. Other than hiring a lawyer, is there anything I can do to help my case such as attend AA meetings. Thanks
The best thing you can do is to hire a good, experienced lawyer to fight the charges. Doing classes wont help in terms...
I was charged with (G.S. 20-141 (B)) and (G. S. 20-138.3). Although I am under 21, I had a couple of drinks at a friends house. On my way home, I was stopped for going "60 MPH in a 45 MPH zone." I had a friend on the passenger seat that was in a bad shape thus the officer asked me to blow into the breathalyzer. After five blows, he went back to his vehicle and brought back a ticket. He let me leave and told me to watch my speed. How I have to appear in court on 09/25/2014. The citation does not say anything about DUI or DWI so I don't know what to expect. More importantly, will this be on my record as a significant misdemeanor?
Its called an underage DWI. It is a serious misdemeanor offense and if you are convicted, you could lose your license...
