They probably should summons you to court in a matter of days. You should get on avvo's lawyer referral page and see if you can get a 15 consultation in north carolina. The fee is $39.

It is very hard to understand what you are asking so it's best that you go and speak with an attorney who can assess your case and explain your options.
There is misdemeanor DWI (or driving impaired) and felony DWI in certain circumstances, such as serious injury or death or at least three previous convictions for impaired driving in the last 10 years.
Someone who is charged should have their first court date within 4-6 weeks. Trials if/when they take place, are usually at least several months after the first court date.
It is difficult to determine what you are asking, but what is clear is that the person charged should seek an attorney. Even misdemeanor DWI is a very serious charge, and will result in fines, license suspension, a BIG increase in car insurance, a criminal record, and very possibly jail time.
