I just got a DUI charge. At first I blew a .08 then when I went to the station I blew a .12. what am I facing?
I have never had any criminal charges and only about 2 or 3 driving tickets. I didn't think at the time I was impaired. I was curious why I wasn't released when I blew the legal limit. I am 33 years old and am unfamiliar with the legal system. I know I need a public attorney but is there any chance of a prayer judgement or getting it plee bargained out? what do I face in the way of punishment? my court date is 2 months away and am worried and need advice as to what I should do

North Carolina - Underage Alcohol Possession?
While at the beach, my 18-year old was issued a citation for underage possession/consumption (beer was found in their hotel room): G.S. 18B-302(B)(1). The officer said this was similar to a traffic ticket: just pay the ~$100 fine. Is this correct? Is there a way to pay the fine without returning for court? We live in Virginia.

Can the DMV amend a revocation order already run its full term and/or adjust a possible upcoming one based on the following?
2 DUI offense;01/2010 & 7/2010 Convicted of 7/2010 in 08/2012; Revocation order has run full term(1 year) 2012-2013; Now late 2014, 01/2010 offense is back in court. Assuming I get convicted of 01/2010 based on G.S. 20-19 (c1) they would revoke my license for 1 year based on no PRIOR convictions 3 years immediately proceeding the date of the offense. Question 1: Are the allowed to modify that revocation order to 4 years based on a conviction AFTER the date of the offense? Now, I am aware of G.S. 20-19 (j) that allows issuing amended revocation orders because this exact issue. My opinion and understanding after reading it is they may amend previous orders(my 2012 order) but still must follow statute guidelines with this possible upcoming one being 1 year not 4 years. Am I right?
GREAT question but too complex for short response. An experienced attorney will need to ask questions and take a look...
