Troy Law

i was charged with 2 dwi's (3 weeks apart of each other)(BAC .19 and BAC .17) in 2007 in NC. I had spent a mandatory 72 hours in jail. I failed to appear for both court dates and now live in another state.
You should promptly contact a North Carolina DUI Attorney and pose this question to that attorney. Use the Avvo find a...
Witnesses are giving wildly conflicting stories. Other party (defendant) w/$100k hired shadow lawyer. My lawyer thinks if we drop punitive damages, shadow will have to switch to pushing her ins to settle the $100, so we don't go for excess verdict against her. Then we can move onto my SUM for more. My lawyer says settlement for 100k will include claim for SUM not to pursue her. No fault 50k is spent, & injuries more than 100k. She had low ins, but a successful business & may have money. Any thoughts at all? I don't want to leap on what's suggested, without seeing if there are other approached possible. Please answer hypothetically if you prefer, since there's no way for you to have all the info. Thanks so much for any thoughts.
Your case is fact intensive and nuanced. Any advice you get on a forum like Avvo is cursory and speculative. Sit down...
Like I said I never drink and drive! My fiancé and I found out we were expecting a week earlier and lost the baby at work. I was so distraught over the loss and how to tell my fiancé I decided to drink. Stupid mistake! No accidents and no one was hurt. They stopped me for illegal lane change. But smelled alcohol on my breath. I messed up and I'm afraid ill be going to jail. I blew a .22!
It is difficult to predict at this time whether or not there will be jail. Contact at least one local defense attorney...
Bar fight
In theory it could be criminal mischief and if the damages exceed $250 it's the Class E felony.
My girlfriend and I consider getting married. However, she is on a five-year probation on a felony DWI conviction (sentenced in March 2012). She has a stable job and she reports peroiodically to a probation officer. She feels uneasy about raising the marriage question with her probation officer (a lady she does not feel comfortable with). She also does not want to introduce me to her probation officer. I have never commited or been convicted of any crime or misdeamenor, except for once driving without the seatbelt on - the "worst crime" on my record. I have a stable job in a professional position (research). We have been together for the past 3.5 years except for 3 months. We live in different but adjacent counties. Does she have the right to marry me? Does she need PO's approval?
Short answer - NO - it should not be an issue! Probation pertains to crimes, arrests, and acts that would cause a...
