North Carolina law provides for a wide range of potential sentences/penalties for an individual that is convicted of a Driving While Impaired (DWI). On the low end of the spectrum a person would generally receive a sentence that includes a fine up to $200.00 plus court cost, likely probation, which will include the defendant obtaining a substance abuse assessment and the recommended treatment, and 24 hours of community service in order for the defendant to have his driver's license restored. The suspension of the individual driver's license would be for a year but the person could obtain a limited driving privilege for work, school, and substance abuse treatment during that time period. Additionally, there could be more penalties from the DMV for a DWI conviction, depending upon your driving record.
Under North Carolina law, if you have been convicted of a DWI, the level of punishment that you will fact is based upon the existence and balancing of grossly aggravating factors, aggravating factors, or mitigating factors.
