There are a multitude of scenarios in which a driver may veer in and out of a lane of traffic. In some cases, something as simple as looking down briefly to change a radio station can create a similar result, and this momentary lapse in concentration may also be all it takes for disaster to strike. Unfortunately, a recent single-vehicle accident that took place in North Carolina has left a 29-year-old man facing drunk driving charges.
Attorney Connelly asked the court to prohibit a key State's witness from giving critical testimony after the witness violated a sequestration order of the court. (A sequestration order requires that all witnesses remain out outside the courtroom and not discuss the case or their testimony.) This key witness sat through the testimony of other witnesses even though the court had ordered that all witnesses remain outside the courtroom. This resulted in the dismissal of a DWI case.
A 55-year-old man has been accused of driving under the influence of alcohol following a recent accident in which he veered off the road while operating a moped. North Carolina state law permits a person to drive such a vehicle without a license or insurance provided the operator wears the proper gear. However, laws concerning impairment apply to all drivers, and those accused of DUI under similar circumstances could face serious consequences.
When being accused of a crime, every individual has rights that must be upheld throughout the process. Unfortunately, many may be unaware of their rights, and furthermore uncertain how to respond to the situation. A 40-year-old man has been arrested and accused of drunk driving after he allegedly drove to a fire station in North Carolina to submit an application while under the influence of alcohol.
Operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol is never advisable and can lead to criminal charges. However, in some cases, one may face drunk driving charges solely based on the words of another party, without being found behind the wheel of a vehicle. An elementary school teacher is facing DWI charges under similar circumstances in North Carolina after a friend allegedly asked her to pull over for her own safety.
A 26-year-old woman has been accused of driving under the influence of alcohol in relation to her alleged involvement in a recent collision in North Carolina. Drunk driving charges carry serious penalties, and a conviction could have a substantial impact on a person's life. Those who face similar charges could choose to prepare for what comes next by focusing on their defense, but they might be uncertain where to turn for guidance.
Many individuals have been accused of driving under the influence of alcohol following a motor vehicle collision. The penalties for a conviction for drunk driving are serious, and may only increase in severity should the accident prove fatal. A 53-year-old woman has recently been arrested and is facing DUI charges following a recent accident involving a motorcycle in North Carolina.
Being accused of driving under the influence of alcohol can be a stressful and intimidating experience. Those who face DUI charges may wish to protect themselves against potentially devastating consequences, but they may be uncertain how best to approach the situation. A woman has recently been accused of drunk driving following her alleged involvement in a fatal pedestrian accident in North Carolina.
Operating a motor vehicle during inclement weather can be dangerous. Should an accident occur under similar circumstances, police may still choose to initiate an investigation into the incident, which in some cases may lead to suspicions of the presence of wrong-doing. A 43-year-old man has recently been accused of drunk driving after colliding with a utility pole during a storm in North Carolina.
Driving under the influence of alcohol carries serious penalties if a conviction is obtained. Should an accident occur, especially one leading to injuries, the consequences may only increase in severity, potentially leaving an accused individual uncertain how best to proceed. A 28-year-old man has recently been arrested and accused of drunk driving following a recent accident in North Carolina.
