Traffic Tickets and DWI
A charge for driving while intoxicated can have a drastic impact on your life. Not only will you likely be subject to court appearances and fines, but you also risk a suspended license, jail time, and mandatory drunk driving school attendance, among other penalties. Some of these consequences depend on factors such as whether or not you have any previous charges, the status of your license at the time of the incident, or the occupants in the vehicle during the incident.
In North Carolina, DWI fines range anywhere from $200 to $2000, and jail time ranges anywhere from 24 hours to 42 months — depending on the level of the offense. The state also requires a suspension of the offender’s driver’s license for a period of time.
For those facing a traffic ticket or DWI fine and the potential suspension of a license, enlisting the help of an experienced legal defense is crucial.
