DWI Arrests Defending Your Rights & Protecting Your License

DWI Arrests in North Carolina

Concord DWI Lawyer

Driving with a blood alcohol level of 0.08% or above will likely cost you your freedom and get you arrested for DWI. A DWI on your record can severely limit you in terms of applying for jobs in the future or pursuing bank loan and you could end up being dropped by your car insurer. Do everything you can to fight your DWI arrest and start by calling a Concord DWI lawyer who can advise and represent you in and out of court.

DWI Punishments

Exact penalties can vary for a DWI conviction with the court weighing other factors which could enhance or decrease your punishment such as excessive speed, blood alcohol twice the legal limit, previous offenses, etc.

The penalty range includes:

  • 1 day to 12 months in jail, $200 in fines, and a license suspension of up to a year for a first DWI
  • 4 days to 12 months in jail, up to 4 years license suspension and fines for a second offense
  • 2 weeks to 12 months in jail, fines, and a yearlong license suspension for a third offense

In addition, after your first DWI conviction, further convictions will require you to have an ignition interlock device (IID) installed in your vehicle to prevent you from further intoxicated driving.

As mentioned, aggravating factors can also enhance your punishments. The presence of "grossly aggravating factors" can upgrade your charge to felony DWI.

Significantly, you are prohibited from attempting to plea for a charge of "wet reckless" instead of DWI in North Carolina. This means you will need a skilled DWI attorney to fight your charges completely and have them dropped.
