What happens when you have 4 IID fails?
I got my first one months ago, I never was asked to come to a hearing or even asked about it. I just recently got 3 more, two in the same day. One just the other day, all three between 10am and noon. I had a few drinks the night before them so I'm guessing I didn't give myself enough time to allow the alcohol to rid my body. I didn't think I was going to fail at all. I cleaned myself and ate, definitely wasn't hungover and was able to drive the car three hours later. I'm on 3 years probation and only 4 months left of my Ignition Interlock. Do you think they'll give me a hard time if I explain the situation especially by telling the truth?
4 failures total; with 3 of those in 1 day? Yes, you're going to have a hard time whether you're honest or if you...
What do I need to do to reinstate a Drivers license privlage in NC 11 years after an underage drinking charge when I was a minor
When I was 17 , I received an underage drinking charge while driving. I did not receive a DWI , however my license was revoked and suspended. It has been 11 years. I have come back to NC and went to get my license for here, and DMV states I am still suspended and can not receive my license. It requires me to show court documents, along with the DMV statement showing why it's suspended. These charges do not even show on my records when I requested them. I have no idea what to do now, or where to start. I was told i'd have to take some class about 16 hours, and pay a fee..but I had to produce those records, which are gone, I assume because it's been years and I was a minor? This is so confusing, it's keeping me from getting a decent job, and I have barely any savings , ughh
I suggest you personally go to the clerk's office at the courthouse where the juvenile matter was adjudicated and ask...
How long does it take to bring a DWI to trial because of lab works in north Carolina.
i was a marine i suffered a traumatic brain injury in Sept 2007. on Nov 15, 2008 i was issued a DWI for driving on medication i blew a .05 on the breathalyzer. all charges were dropped by the marines because there were no restrictions with the medication to drink nor operating machinery while on it. they took lab works. i was wondering how long the state has to bring a case to trial? It's been almost a year now, the DA still states they are not ready. is there a cut off point where they drop the case because they are taking too long?
There is no hard and fast deadline. There are two major issues: (1) Constitutional speedy trial issues, and (2) the...

I needed to pick up my daughter from the doctor and had no help at the time so I went to get her.....I got pulled for speeding and that's how the charges came about.
This would be a potential violation of your probation in a couple of ways. First, it is probable that the court...
When you get sentenced to prison for dwi does it get cut in half after u get processed into prison?
My husband was sentenced a few days ago for his fourth dwi. But it's been 8 yrs since his last one . He had been asking for a public defender everytime he went to court because he has a back diseases an has applied for disability he has no work at all. He's been given pd before in the county we live in but the judge just kept refusing to give him a pd. so they locked him up Thursday the 15 of June. He was sentenced to 18 months and is in county jail as we speak I was wondering was his rights violated when he was refused a pd when he had no income at all and I've heard by people that when he finally gets processed into a prison that dwi gets knocked in half when u get to prison. Is this true. Just any information and help at all about his case I'd be very greatful . I myself am disabled and taking care of our two small kids now that this happened. Thank u
If he was just sentenced 3 days ago you must act fast. First thing tomorrow morning all a DWI defense attorneyexplain...
Can one not even have a falsely convicted dui misdemeanor hidden in Carteret County No. Carolina from 1983 ?
I have seen men convicted of murder get out in 7 years free as birds yet I am doomed to life in the prison in my decaying 1969 mobile home on my small property with out public transportation. I only get rides to my dr & sometimes to the Wal-Mart pharmacy. Otherwise I go months & years without meeting another human being. I am permanently trapped in a Prison of Glass. 14 years thus far. No friends left. They have died, moved on Etc. I was adopted my older people that died in 1980 & 1987. I have PTSD, anxiety & panic attacks. Depression is so awful knowing my life is over & has been many years. If only there was hope. Something to work towards these past 14 years so I might be free also just once more. Automobiles were my life, my work, my freedom & helped me cope with my PTSD. The worse part is I was not guilty of my first offense in Carteret Co. North Carolina. I was just left in my car after a friend did the deed & found by the law and have been paying for it with this life sentence. If only that DA there at that time would have let me plead NOT-Guilty, none of this situation i'm in would have happened. I had major problems & dealt with them with alcohol but not now
You had the ability-and the right- to plead not guilty to DWI. Had you done so, you still could have bern convicted....
