    This is an extremely serious situation. A second DWI within 7 years of the first is a grossly aggravating factor (GAF). If "driving with restricted license" means driving while license revoked, that is a second GAF if the revocation was because of the prior DWI. The serious accident can be another GAF if serious injury occurred. That might be three GAFs, which will give you a minimum of 12 months in jail, but can be suspended if you spend 120 days in jail and 120 of Continuous Alcohol...

    Don't pay the fine. Hire an attorney. Paying the fine is pleading guilty to a misdemeanor. You may be able to avoid a conviction by hiring an attorney. In the long run, it will be money well spent. Good luck.

    Hearsay evidence generally is inadmissible in court, but it can be used outside of court for a goat of reasons, including probable cause to question a suspect. In this case, Jim confessed. Matt's accusation against Jim would not likely be needed to be admitted against Jim since Jim's own words, namely hisconfessionwould be used against him. Now, if Jim was not Mirandized before interrogation, then his confession would be inadmissible.

    First of all, I'm sorry you are going through this. But please, STOP CONFESSING TO CRIMES on this forum! Today, you likely have your first appearance at the Detention Center. The judge will ask you what you want to do for an attorney. You can tell the judge you want to hire one or that you want to be considered for court-appointed counsel. You can apply for court-appointed counsel and hire your own attorney at a later date. As far as the disposition of your case, an experienced...

    Neither of them have to be there. As far as the original, it needs to be accessible at your death. That can be with the executor or among your important papers. Anyone you want can get a copy. A copy cannot be probated.

    The case was decided by the NC Court of Appeals. Attorney General Roy Cooper is appealing the decision to the NC Supreme Court. The stay will last until the case is decided by the NC Supreme Court. Cases before the NC Supreme Court can take upwards of a year to be decided. However, it may not end there. Arguably, the stay could last longer as this is a Constitutional issue which could then be appealed to the United States Supreme Court. It is an interesting issue that I look forward to...

    No. I & D does not require a breathalyzer. A breathalyzer is almost always required to prove "impairment" in a driving while impaired charge, but intoxication in an I & D charge is much more subjective, but requires at least one of the behaviors listed below. NCGS 14-444 states that: (a) It shall be unlawful for any person in a public place to be intoxicated and disruptive in any of the following ways: (1) Blocking or otherwise interfering with traffic on a highway or public...
