When can I get an IID removed?
I was convicted of DUI in May of 2014 for BAC +.15. I gave up my license for 45 days, I got an IID installed in July at the direction of the NCDMV and got limited driving privileges. I was required to have the IID for one year - is that one year from the date I was convicted or date of install? In other words, can I ask for it to be removed in May, 2015 or do I wait til July 2015?
Call your local DMV to see when you can get the iid removed from your vehicle.

Arrested for DWI. What to expect from attorney, and can I see the state's evidence against me?
Last month I was pulled over and arrested for suspected DWI. I hired an attorney and met with him briefly to discuss the facts of the case. Since then, my case has been continued once. I'm new to all this and have 2 questions: #1 - When should I expect to hear from my attorney regarding whether he thinks I should plead guilty or go to trial? I'm a little worried that I won't learn of his recommendation until I actually show up for court. Do most attorneys discuss this with clients before their actual court date in case the client has additional questions? #2 - Is it possible for me to personally get copies of the evidence that the state has against me (e.g., patrol car video, officer's report, etc.), and is this only possible if the case goes to trial? Thanks in advance!
You should really speak to the attorney you hired and pose these questions.
Can you do community service before going to court in NC, and how does community service work in general?
I was arrested and charged with a DWI in Randolph County. I have hired an attorney. A friend told me that it was possible to perform community service work prior to going to court, and that this might even save some money. Is this true? Also, in North Carolina, does court-ordered community service work have to be performed in the same county as the conviction? I live in a different county from the one where my case is pending. How do you go about finding an organization to perform your court-ordered community service?
I can't speak for Randolph County, so your lawyer would be a better resource for your question as to the community...
What is my possible punishment. Should I tell my po right away
Randolph county nc..I recently was convicted of a dui in sept 2014. I received 18 mos probation and 48 hrs in jail which I have not served yet and 1 year license suspension.
