Penalties for First DWI Convictions in North Carolina
First-time DWI offenses are typically misdemeanor crimes, unless they are certain aggravating factors involved in the offense. DWI/DUI penalties for a first-time offense may include incarceration, expensive fines and the loss of the defendant's driving privileges for a certain period of time.
Your incarceration period and fine may be dramatically lowered if you are able to get probation, which may include alcohol or drug treatment as a condition. It is usually easier for first-time offenders to secure this sentencing option. On the other hand, if you had a blood alcohol concentration of 0.15% or higher, a conviction will result in harsher driving restrictions, including a 1-year requirement to use an ignition interlock device.
