How can I get my drivers license back for a out of state N.C. D.U.I?
About 6 years ago I recieved a D.U.I. in North Carolina. 15 days later I got another one. I completed my 24 hours of community service and paid all the fines so that first DUI was 100% taken care of. In the mean time I moved to Wisconsin. I traveled back and fourth to NC 3 times that year for court dates but started a new job in wisconsin and missed the last appearance. Now I have a 2 year old son, own and opperate a technology company, own a house and have everything except for my drivers liceanse. Driving is a daily risk I have taken for the last 6 years to be able to make a living and now more than ever take care of my family. I keep running into brick walls and need a liceanse for so many things. How can I get my drivers liceanse back without returning to North Carolina? Is it possible to get the case sent up here for sentencing or is it possible to get North Carolina to drop the case if I agree to never return. I am unable to recieve a occupational license in Wisconsin because of this as well. Any input would be great, the lawyer I had down there has disappeared with my money so I am out of ideas at this point. There has to be a way.

Will DWI mistrial most likely be retried?
DWI Superior Court Mistrail question. My case is still pending in Disctrict Court but if I'm found guilty and appeal for a Superior Court trial, what happens if there's a hung jury and a mistrial is declared? It is likely the DA would re-try the case? I'm just weighing my options due to the legal costs. Also, do a lot of DWI cases end up with a hung jury?
Asker, many cases in general end in a hung jury... it's difficult to get 12 people to decide on something and there's...
Can I fight my .11 BAC DUI on the basis of low-carb/high protein diet.
Hello everyone, I got pulled over by cop driving over the speed limit and I ended up blowing .11 BAC later at the station. I had couple of beer 20-30 minute before I got pulled over. I was going to get some food. I got nervous and made all the mistake I could possibly make like failed SFST, finding difficulty in License and accepting drinking beer. I was in shock and couldn't think why I got so high BAC. I was on low-carb/high protein diet and I did not know if that can effect my BAC test. I don't know if I can contest my case on the basis of low-carb/high protein diet. This is my first DUI and I am devastated, I am not sure what should I do and I am afraid that it is going to impact my neutralization application.

Do I need an attorney for a preliminary hearing with the NCDMV following a failed run test? I had NOT been drinking.
Ignition interlock installed after 2nd dui. Monitech is the company doing the interlock. When I went in for this program violation I was sure I hadn't been drinking and went in specifically to have the unit serviced bc of it. I was told I blew a 0 on start test, then a .01 first running test. I then pulled to the side of the road and blew another 0. They agreed it was likely a mouth contaminent and noted that (even though I had only ingested water and eaten nothing). I assumed them saying this cleared it up, but no I must now ask for a trial as I received a notice of suspension form the NCDMV. Is this cut and dry enough to handle on my own or do I need a lawyer? I am a broke grad student so looking for realistic guidance.
