I was arrested for a DUI on the 27th/28th of September. My BAC was .08. I was not held in prison and released after going to the magistrate. I am taking this case to court and will do everything I can to fight it. Other than hiring a lawyer, is there anything I can do to help my case such as attend AA meetings. Thanks
The best thing you can do is to hire a good, experienced lawyer to fight the charges. Doing classes wont help in terms...
I was charged with (G.S. 20-141 (B)) and (G. S. 20-138.3). Although I am under 21, I had a couple of drinks at a friends house. On my way home, I was stopped for going "60 MPH in a 45 MPH zone." I had a friend on the passenger seat that was in a bad shape thus the officer asked me to blow into the breathalyzer. After five blows, he went back to his vehicle and brought back a ticket. He let me leave and told me to watch my speed. How I have to appear in court on 09/25/2014. The citation does not say anything about DUI or DWI so I don't know what to expect. More importantly, will this be on my record as a significant misdemeanor?
Its called an underage DWI. It is a serious misdemeanor offense and if you are convicted, you could lose your license...

I live in NC but got a DUI in NY. I was charged with a BAC of .15 at the police station but released, also charged with open container, DUI, failure to keep right, and unsafe start as I wrecked my car. How tough is NC with DUI's as this is my first one and need to know what I should push to be reduced. My understanding is that they will go by NY laws but will contact NC once I am charged. Can I get my BAC reduced and some of the other charges? I am curious what my consequences will be and if they will charge me with NY law and then NC law once NC is notified or what exactly will happen. Thanks.
You will be prosecuted under the laws of NY and your case will be resolved in that jurisdiction. The only impact from...
