What Is A Habitual DWI Charge?
In North Carolina, when an individual is charged with multiple drunk driving offenses, their charges escalate to a “habitual DWI” charge. In other states, this is sometimes referred to as an “aggravated” DWI charge. A habitual DWI is a felony charge with serious consequences, including at least one year of incarceration and extremely expensive fines. This charge is substantially more serious than a typical DWI.
Can The State Seize My Car After A DWI?
Yes. Under certain factors, including if you receive three DUI charges in a seven-year period, the state has legal grounds to seize your vehicle.
What Happens If I Took A Breathalyzer Test?
Many people think that they cannot fight Breathalyzer test results. However, Breathalyzers are subject to many factors. A poor calibration or improperly administered test may cause inconclusive or unreliable results. Huffman & Kendrick, PLLC, is familiar with the science behind Breathalyzers and will fight any improper evidence that results.
