Charged with DWI in NC, March, 2013 with two prior DWI convictions. The first conviction was in 1989, over 24 years ago; the second conviction was in 1994, over 19 years ago. What is the maximum level of punishment I could receive if I were to plead guilty without any representation? I have had my drug and alcohol assessment and completed all of the classes. This was done voluntarily. There were no accidents or any sort of aggravating factors. I fell asleep while sitting in my car outside of my apartment building where smoking was not permitted, and had the unfortunate luck of being found this way by the police. The keys were in the ignition, my seat was laid back as far as it would go, and the driver's side door was open. Thank you for your time in this matter.
Based on only the above information, you could be found at level 3, 4, or 5 facing up to 6 months active time. Also,...
I received a DWI Saturday in North Carolina. I am a SC resident with SC license. In NC they immediately revoke your driving privileges. They also took my actual driver's license. However I want to know if I can drive in SC right now?
You should be able to get your SC license back by paying the $100 civil revocation fine. Either way, your NC privileges...
I got a citation for underage drinking at age 18, I've never been charged with anything before and it's my first offense. What's most likely going to happen to me? I'm not getting a lawyer or PD, I just don't wanna do time.
A person who represents themselves has a fool for an attorney. It is simply not worth having a criminal record the...
I was pulled over for not maintaining lane control. I had my ID already out the window for the Officer. He asked if I had been drinking to which I said a few beer. He shoved a breathalyzer in my face, I refused. He opened my car door, threatened to tase me, then pulled me open, put me in handcuffs and sat me in his front seat. I asked if I was under arrest, he said yes. I asked him to read me my rights, he said nope. They searched me at intake, took a breathalyzer(.11%) made me sign a bunch of stuff and gave me a unsecured bond of $1000. I went home. I have court next month. I basically want to know if my circumstance can become a Wet Driving plea bargain? I want a good example of the total costs this will all be without an attorney. EX. $2000 or $3000. THANK YOU.
I would strongly encourage you to hire an attorney for this charge. There are some facts that you have brought up that...
I recently got pulled over for DWI, and refused to blow, so the officer then obtained a search warrant from the magistrate. 3 years ago, I receieved a DWI in nj, will this affect my case in NC or will it be taken as a first offense still?
Were you convicted of the offense in NJ? If so it count as a first offense.
I have been charged with a D.U.I. here in New Hanover county, NC. I have been unemployed for some time with no unemployment benefits. The judge ordered me to go to an alcohol assessment program, revoked my license for one year and put me on probation until my fine of $1,200 was paid off. I pay child support in the amount of $575.00 per month and cannot come up with the money to pay my court fines or the amount for the assessment as I will be in trouble if child support is not paid. I blew a .12 on the breathalizer. My question is, what is the proper protocol in order to have my fines lowered, or even dismissed? If not, what are my other options? I have been offered a couple of jobs but cannot take them because I cannot drive. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
Talk to your probation officer about this impossibility. If he/she cannot suggest something, you need to contact the...
We lost a recent appeal in NC. As of this writing, my license is valid, but it will not be for long. We already have a place in GA and I could likely get a Georgia DL at the moment. I understand that GA is not a member of the DL compact (along with Wisconsin, Massachusetts, Michigan, and Tennessee). I'm not sure if it matters at all, but would like to consider all options. As this is a 2nd offense, this would be a 4yr suspension in NC. I'd also consider moving out of the country as driving is pretty essential to my work. My question is this: What state and/or country would be the best location to move to in order to reduce/minimize the consequences of my situation?
I am not aware of any state that you are going to be able to move to that will allow you to successfully apply for a...
