Putting Skill And Experience In Your Corner After A DWI Arrest
North Carolina has some of the harshest penalties for driving while impaired (DWI). In recent years, DWI laws have grown stricter, and they will likely continue to move toward tighter restrictions. As public opinion campaigns increasingly incite strong stances against drinking while driving, prosecutors have also begun to take DWI cases more and more seriously.
A conviction for DWI can lead to a broad range of penalties. Depending on the level of offense — and any priors you may have — you could face jail time, hefty fines and the installation of an ignition interlock device. On top of the criminal penalties, your driving privileges may also be impacted by a DWI arrest. You could face suspension or revocation of your driver’s license.
