North Carolina law is very confusing. I was convicted of .08 DUI. 18hours of traffic school and 8 hours community service were condiitions for license restoration.
Completed traffic school and called community service to schedule. Was told I was issued a court order to appear in court because community service was not completed within 30 days of sentence.
Went before NC judge today. Explained could not be in compliance with community service because office would not allow me to complete before this hearing - and provided evidence of attempts to schedule and that conduct was not unwillful. Judge did not giordered me to 24h jail. Attorney in underlying matter came in to court and rescued my by appeal.
I'm probably doing jail time on appeal. Will this go on a public record?Typos! Judge ordered me to 24 hours jail and I provided evidence conduct was not willful (he didn't suspend my provisional license at least) The community service office will not let me schedule my community service until a judge makes a determination - tried to schedule it 3x. My attorney services 25 customers in court at any given time and didn't have the time to talk to him after the appealed hearing. So, thanks for your time.
