DWI Charge in Elizabeth City and Surrounding Communities

A DWI charge is a serious legal problem, even for a first-time misdemeanor offense. If convicted, you will lose your legal right to drive, receive expensive fines and court fees, and possibly get jail or prison time. Your personal and professional reputation can be permanently damaged. The actual arrest can be a shocking experience, and regardless of whether you consumed any alcohol, you are very likely to be treated like a criminal – a very unpleasant situation.

Once booked for the DWI, you have several issues to resolve. The first is your driver’s license. You can challenge the validity of the suspension of your license, but only if your lawyer moves quickly. A request for a hearing should be filed at once. A driver’s license suspension or revocation is an automatic consequence of a DWI arrest.

Drug Charges: Marijuana, Cocaine, Meth and Prescription Drugs

North Carolina law can impose heavy penalties for certain drug crimes. The penalties are based on the type of drug and the quantity alleged to have been in your possession or under your control. You can be convicted upon actual or constructive possession of the drugs. The consequences of a drug arrest can be serious, and a conviction has ramifications far beyond jail or prison time. Those that hold certain licenses may lose their ability to practice their profession. Students who need federal financial aid may lose their eligibility for such. Your ability to join or remain in the military may be affected by convictions of certain drug crimes.

Traffic Tickets: Civil and Criminal Traffic Offenses

It can be easy to rack up points on your license, particularly if you have gotten several moving violations. A convicted related to DWI or other alcohol-related offenses can lead to license suspension, and a charge related to reckless driving or excessive speeding may lead to a revocation for repeat offenders. If you retain your license, the costs of your automobile insurance can skyrocket. Keeping your legal right to drive requires that you to fight back in court.

DO NOT ASSUME THAT ANY DEAL YOU ARE ABLE TO GET ON YOUR OWN IS THE BEST, OR EVEN A GOOD OPTION FOR YOU. Many people nowadays believe that they can go to Court on their own and work a deal with the Prosecutor to get the charges reduced. However, what they fail to understand is that neither the Prosecutor, nor the officer, nor the Clerk, nor the Judge is looking at your or your family’s driving record to make sure that “the deal” is in the your best interest. Officers and Court Personnel merely want to get a conviction and get your case over with. What they fail to say is that “the deal” can often result in really steep insurance increases, driver’s license points or revocations, or other unspoken consequences based upon your or your family’s prior tickets, accidents, points or driving records.
