When costumes and candy turn to cuffs and charges

Many of us have learned that, in life, things can go from great to bad in the blink of an eye. Hopefully, most of you haven't had to learn that in extremely hard ways. Unfortunately, some learn that lesson when a fun night of celebrating transforms into a criminal case. 

Beginning last night, it is safe to assume that Concord and nearby law enforcement began stepping up their efforts to round up suspected DUI offenders. Once Halloween is behind us on Tuesday morning, you will likely see fewer patrols on the roads. Until then, know that while you are out trying to simply enjoy Halloween, the chance that your plans could be thwarted by a DUI arrest is increased.

Whether you are arrested for suspicion of drunk driving due to Halloween-related fun or otherwise, your case will be taken seriously in North Carolina. The severity of your charge and the potential outcome depends on various factors:

  • Is this your first DWI?
  • How many other DUIs are on your record?
  • Was someone injured as a result of the alleged drunk driving?
  • Are you a commercial driver?
  • Do you have a valid driver's license?
  • What was your reported blood alcohol level?

The above questions are just several of many other issues that an experienced criminal defense team would look at and explain to you in the instance of a DUI charge. Specifics within your case, including authorities' actions during a traffic stop or investigation, can make a significant difference in your case -- and your life.
