  1. I was charged with a DUI even though my BAC was .07. How is this possible and will my case likely be dismissed?

    The State can prove a DWI by 1 of 2 ways. That your BAC was .08 or higher, which wouldnt apply in your case obviously, or that your mental and physical faculties were appreciably impaired. This is proven through the officer's observations of you ie your driving, field sobriety tests etc. I often argue to the DAs that if they live by the sword, they should die by the sword, meaning if they always move forward when its .08 or higher, then when the blow is below a .08, they shouldnt proceed....

    Absolutely consult with an attorney. You are looking at a possible misdemeanor conviction for an offense involving honesty. Most future employers will pass right over you if they find out about it. There may be several options at your disposal to keep this from happening. Talk to a lawyer asap.

    Its called an underage DWI. It is a serious misdemeanor offense and if you are convicted, you could lose your license for a year, just like a regular DWI. Plus the conviction will follow you around and you may have to explain it to future employers, etc. I recommend consulting an experienced DWI attorney in Charlotte. There's too much at stake not to do so.

    You should consult a DWI attorney asap. You may have defenses to your case. But if the BAC is .17 and you are found guilty, you will be required to install the ignition interlock device in your car for a minimum of a year. So there's a lot at stake which is why you should talk to a lawyer.

    You should definitely consult an experienced Charlotte DWI lawyer to see what your defenses may be. There are two ways the State can prove a DWI against you. One deals with the BAC being a .08 or higher but the other way doesnt require any BAC reading. It deals with the observations of the officer, field sobriety testing, driving etc. I have attached a link to a video that explains the ways the State will try to prove your impairment. There is a lot at stake so contact an attorney asap.

    DWIs are one of the most serious misdemeanor charges we have in NC. and with a .18 BAC, if you are found guilty you will have to install the interlock device in your car aka the Blow and Go. Not much fun. So talk to an experienced DUI/DWI lawyer to see what your options are and to see if you might be able to beat the charges. and PS never admit you were drinking heavily in an open forum on the internet.

    My best guess without seeing the judgment is that the sentence was suspended since you were put on unsupervised probation and you arent in custody currently. If you do not abide by the terms of the probation, then they may activate the sentence. Keep in mind that if you do not like the sentence, depending on which court you were in, you may have some appeal rights but you only have a limited time. Contact an experienced criminal defense attorney if you would like to explore those rights.
