DWI LAWYER / DUI LAWYER
RTS Law Group to be your: Best DUI Lawyer Charlotte. Being arrested for Driving While Intoxicated (DWI or DUI) can be very scary and confusing. After the North Carolina General Assembly reduced the legal limit from .10% to .08%, many people received a rude awakening.
The prosecution has the burden of showing that there was reasonable suspicion for the police officer to stop your car and investigate. Additionally, the prosecution must show that there was probable cause for them to arrest you. Even if the State is able to meet these burdens, they still have to prove each and every element of DWI beyond a reasonable doubt. First, it must be proved that you were driving. Second, that you were driving on a public street or highway. Third, that either you were under the influence of an impairing substance, or that your blood alcohol content (BAC) was at or above the North Carolina legal limit of .08% at any relevant time when operating a motor vehicle. The prosecution must prove that your physical and/or mental abilities were impaired to an appreciable extent by the use of an intoxicating substance while you were operating a motor vehicle.
Will You Lose Your License? - The North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) can largely affect your life after being charged with DWI. Due to the "Implied Consent" law of North Carolina which requires all licensed drivers to submit to a chemical test if law enforcement officers believe drivers are driving while under the influence of an impairing substance, refusing to take a breath, blood, or urine test can cause your license to be suspended for one (1) year. Under North Carolina General Statute §20-16.5(e), receiving a .08% or higher can suspend your license for thirty (30) days from the date of your arrest. Subsequently being convicted of DWI can further suspend your license for up to three (3) years, and even permanently suspend your license. In addition to losing your license privilege, you may face extremely harsh criminal penalties, including jail time. Winning a small battle can win the war in terms of receiving a verdict of "Not Guilty."

Many people do not fully understand how being charged with a crime, even without being convicted of that crime, can have a serious impact on their future. Sadly, it is only when these decisions impact their job, education or family that they realize something should have been done. For example, many people who negotiate a dismissal of their criminal charges, or who achieve a finding of "not guilty" at trial, still have those criminal charges on their record. They do not automatically disappear if the charges are dropped.
Don't let a criminal record haunt your reputation, as well as your future, especially if you were falsely accused of a crime in the first place.
