    If convicted of aiding and abetting you can lose your license for one year and be punished the same as the least level dwi. I recommend that you call an attorney so that you can provide that attorney with details from the night of the arrest. Call andy banzhoff in asheville. He is a real good dwi attorney. Since you have a prior dwi conviction, I would not go into court unrepresented. Jim McGee The McGee Law Firm 213 Princess St. Wilmington, NC 28401

Typically, the prosecutor will have you complete community service and require that you not get in trouble for a six month or one year period. The Judge will give you a date in which you come back to court and the prosecutor will make sure you have completed the community service and have no new charges. Also, sometimes the prosecutor will require drug classes to be completed. If you do everything that is required from the...

    You should call the clerk of court where you last lived. Also, you could call the sheriffs department or city police where you last lived to find out if there are any warrants. If a charge was issued and dismissed you can hire an attorney in that county to get an expungment.

    I would definitely not go unrepresented. Anger management is a good idea and is often prescribed by the court. The first thing an attorney would do is contact the victim to find out the damages and to meet with that attorney to discuss the details of the incident. Injury to real property and simple assault are class one misdemeanors. Often first time offenders are able to get deferred prosecutions in which they can eventually get the ultimate charges dismissed. A deferred prosecution is...
