I got into an accident because my tire blew out, but i had been drinking and my son was in the car with me so I’m getting charged with child abuse, reckless driving and DWI. This is my first offense
Hi. Whether you go to court for this in Graham or another courthouse, like Reudsville or Hillsborough, and if your child is under 18 years old, don’t sweat the child abuse charge. What’s more serious and far more important is your DWI charge. Your child in car + drinking enough to be charged with DWI = jail time. Yes, even if you’ve never had so much as a simple speeding ticket. You’re facing an aggravated level 1 DWI- which is the most serious DWI charge you can get. You really need an experienced DWI defense attorney to help you. Please do lawyer up and do so ASAP. I am thankful that it sounds as if neither of you was injured. Count your blessings- the outcome of the accident could have been tragic.
