Dealing with a DWI in North Carolina?

Driving while intoxicated (DWI) is illegal in North Carolina. Intoxication means that someone is impaired by a substance such as alcohol or drugs, has a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) or 0.08% or greater, or has any amount of a Schedule I substance present in their blood or urine.

There are five levels of aggravation for DWI in North Carolina. This means that possible jail time and fines you face are based upon a sliding scale. Depending upon the seriousness of your charges, you can face anywhere between 24 hours to two years in jail and $200 and $4,000 in fines for a DWI conviction.

In some circumstances, a DWI sentence can be suspended in favor of probate. This can only happen at a judge’s discretion, but our criminal defense attorney in North Carolina may be able to help you secure more favorable outcomes like this.
