Danny Glover, Jr. proudly represents people facing criminal charges in Elizabeth City, Edenton, Hertford, Camden, Currituck, Gates, the Outer Banks, and the communities throughout northeastern North Carolina.
If you’ve been charged with “drunk driving” it’s imperative you seek legal representation without delay. Even if a first offense DUI, there are often important materials to file regarding your driver license.
It’s frankly a bit complicated. Driving while impaired in North Carolina is a serious criminal offense, even if you’re only charged with a misdemeanor.
There are certain felony charges associated with DWI including things like Felony Death by Vehicle, Manslaughter, and even 2nd Degree Murder.
You likely realize there can be immediate consequences to your ability to drive, even if you’re licensed out-of-state. People who blow 0.08 or higher and/or possibly refused the breathalyzer may receive notice a notice of suspension or revocation from NC DMV.Domestic Violence
Crimes like simple assault, assault on a female, communicating threats, and interference with 911 communications may fall within the category of “domestic violence charges” in North Carolina.
While there isn’t a particular statute defining what constitutes “acts of domestic violence,” it’s not difficult to understand the impact to your immediate future.
Domestic violence is broadly defined. It does not necessarily require an ongoing domestic relationship. Prior dating relationships, children in common, and even co-habitation may be considered by Magistrates, Judges, and prosecutors bringing charges.
Indeed, even though North Carolina does not specifically recognize Common Law Marriage under the NC family laws, the criminal statute recognizes couples who live together as if they were married.
There are special rules regarding setting bond and conditions of release involving crimes of domestic violence. If you or a loved-one has been charged and is in jail being held with no bond DV call use now.50B and DVPO Domestic Violence Protection Order
In addition to criminal charges, allegations of domestic violence may result in a related, although technically separate civil filing under the NG general statutes, specifically pursuant to N.C.G.S. Chapter 50B. Many defense lawyers (and even family law attorneys) refer to those as 50B hearings.
Restraining Orders and/or TRO Temporary Restraining Orders are handled on an expedited basis in Outer Banks courts. Violation of a DVPO, in addition to being grounds for revocation of bond and Criminal Contempt, may also be the legal basis for a new criminal charge.
Criminal lawyers regularly help people in court regarding 50B legal issues, as they are often predicated on criminal charges. Put simply, they’re both serious and complicated.
Do NOT attempt to contact the alleged victim. Do NOT call, email, text, or use social media texting to communicate with them, even if they try to contact you first or assure you they’re not pressing charges.
It’s not up to them. The ADA in court (the assistant district attorney or “the State”) gets to decide whether to proceed forward with criminal charges. That’s true even if the person who was allegedly harmed doesn’t wish to prosecute or otherwise wants the charges dismissed.Drug Charges – Trafficking and Possession of Drugs in NC
Drug offenses go from very minor, like simple possession of marijuana or possession of drug paraphernalia for marijuana, often a low-level Class III misdemeanor in North Carolina, all the way to Trafficking charges in Federal Court, which can result in decades in prison.
Either way, it’s important to take drug charges seriously. Judges, prosecutors, police officers, and defense attorneys do. You should too.
“Sometimes clients think, ‘It’s no big deal. It’s legal where I come from.’ While that’s understandable, North Carolina enforces it’s drug laws. It’s a mistake to roll into court and assume they’ll dismiss your charges because you’re a nice person”

Few charges carry as many unforeseen, long-term consequences as larceny charges. A conviction for something even as minor as shoplifting or unlawful concealment in NC can make it hard to find and keep a good job.
No one wants to be known as a thief or dishonest person. It isn’t hard to imagine many employers won’t hire people with prior criminal convictions for felony or misdemeanor charges involving theft or larceny.
There may be options available to avoid a criminal conviction, but you should not assume that’s automatic. That’s also true for the expunction or expungement of criminal charges.OBX criminal defense attorney Danny Glover
