Driving While Impaired is a serious charge in North Carolina which can result in loss of license, significant fines and costs, as well as jail time.
Even if your first court date is months away, it is extremely important to get in touch with an attorney as soon as possible after being charged with DWI. If not acted upon quickly, you may lose your right to request certain hearings which could allow you to get your license back, pending the outcome of your case.
Many people incorrectly believe they have no chance to defend a DWI charge if they “blow” .08 or more. The Constitutions of both the United States and North Carolina provide for certain protections relevant to criminal charges. For example, an officer must have reasonable suspicion to pull you over. Also, an officer must have probable cause before an arrest can be made. Moreover, the State must prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt before you can be convicted.
