I am not an immigration attorney, so I can only speak about similar situations that occurred with past clients. One was a U.S. citizen with a pending DWI in North Carolina. He had been released on a written promise to appear in court. He traveled out of the country for a wedding and he had no problems at all leaving and re-entering the U.S. I also have represented citizen of the U.K. for DWI. He was able to travel back to England while his DWI was pending in Union County N.C. He had no...
First of all, you got a great deal. Thank your lawyer for that. You were sentenced to the lowest level of punishment in North Carolina for DWI. My guess is that your heroin charge had a bond and the DWI and class 2 misdemeanor of RDO did not have a bond attached. Call your attorney. I think you will find that your confinement was related to the felony and the dismissal of the felony would explain why you would not be entitled to pre-trial on your level 5 plea.
You have received some good advice and everything points to "hire a lawyer." It is up to the Judge to determine if "reasonable and articulable suspicion" existed to stop and detain you existed and it is up to the Judge to determine if "probable cause" existed to place you under arrest. You a qualified attorney to make arguments on your behalf. Best of luck.
The State must prove you were driving in order to convict you of DWI. There is also a relevant time issue that may apply in your case. Consult with an attorney now! Do not speak to anyone else about your case. There may be a few defenses to your case and this should be discussed with an attorney in a private setting.
Are you expecting a tax return? Maybe you could put those funds towards hiring an attorney. Trafficking carries a mandatory minimum prison sentence. I would make sure you do what you can to get an attorney involved in the case that you are comfortable with. Good luck!
Without question you need to hire an experienced attorney in the county that you were charged. Hire someone in Greensboro who practices in District Court on a daily basis and has a good working relationship with law enforcement and the District Attorney's Office. Best of luck.
Wow. I see many issues here as well. You need to consult with an attorney in Fayetteville and make sure you have all of your paperwork that you were given on the night that you were arrested. Make sure you are very specific about every detail that you can recall from the arrest. It sounds to me like you will have a pretty good defense and you may find that the case may be dismissed during a hearing on a pre-trial motion if the filing of such a motion is appropriate in your case.
