Need some knowledge of DWI assessments and dwlr assessments in NC?
In NC when you get a dwi you are required to take an assessment and then the number of classes determined by the assessor. As of 2008 they also require you to take an assessment if you get a dwlr and your revocation had been due to a dwi. I had a dwi I was convicted of in 2012 and later got two dwlr conviictions. The dwi was in Brunswick county and the two dwlr were in New Hanover county. So my questions are will I have to take a seperate assessment and set of classes for each charge or can the three be consolidated? and also, can these assessments and classes be taken anywhere in NC regardless of the county of conviction?

Do I have any chance of getting off a DWI arrest bc of a possible 4th Ammendment violation?
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.
