Consequences of a DWI charge
Although Driving While Impaired (DWI) is classified as a misdemeanor, it is treated with the same severity as a felony in the North Carolina court system. In North Carolina, even a one-time DWI conviction can completely disrupt your way of life and cost you a staggering sum of money. Here are some possible consequences of DWI:
- Suspended license for at least 1 year
- High fines
- A Criminal Record
- Required disclosure on job applications
- Jail or prison time
There are other alternative outcomes as well. Wouldn’t you like to fight for one of the following?:
- A dismissal
- To be found not guilty
- A lesser offense
- A limited driving privilege to get you to and from work or school
- Less punishment
These are all options depending on the facts of your case and the preparation and planning of your lawyer.
Act with your future in mind.
These are merely some of the consequences of a DWI conviction. That’s why you need an attorney with the finesse, experience and understanding required to win these difficult cases.
