DUI vs DWI

DUI vs DWI


December 17, 2015

Have you wondered what the difference is between DWI and DUI?

Did you know DUI (Driving Under the Influence) and DWI (Driving While Impaired) are the same crime. North Carolina law does not recognize a difference between the two and actually punishes this offense under the label of DWI.  This is because the law recognizes and punishes impairment, regardless of whether it stems from alcohol, illegal drugs or prescription medication.

When charged with DWI, you might think that you have no legal option but to accept the prosecutor’s plea arrangement and pay the penalties. The truth is that an experienced DWI defense attorney can help you avoid the worst of the serious consequences of a guilty plea.

It is important to remember that you are considered innocent until proven guilty. That means that the right DWI lawyer can suppress evidence, challenge probable cause, and work hard to dismiss your charges.
