Some states see a DWI as more severe than a DUI. However, a DWI and a DUI in North Carolina are considered the same serious allegation.

Common Defenses for a DWI Case

When charged with DWI, there are valid defenses you can use. It includes: 

  • The police did not have reasonable suspicion of articulable facts and pulled you over illegally.
  • The breath test could have been more reliable.
  • Inappropriate handling of blood tests.
  • Police failed to perform the field sobriety test correctly.

DWI Penalties in North Carolina

The penalties you could receive for DWI include a steep fine, jail time, community service hours at a non-profit organization, substance abuse treatment, and classes, attending a victim-impact panel, possible suspension of your driver’s license, wearing an alcohol-detection device around your ankle, the installation and connection of a breathalyzer in your vehicle.

Even the most minor DWI causes a significant fine in addition to 60 days of jail time. These minor penalties can increase to at least a $10,000 fine and three years in jail.
