Driving While Impaired in Sanford, NC

When a law enforcement officer stops you and suspects that your driving abilities are impaired due to alcohol, illegal drugs, or prescription medications, there are exact procedures that he/she must follow during an arrest. Under the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution, they may only stop you if they have reasonable suspicion or probable cause to do so. Examples might be driving erratically, an expired license plate, a broken taillight or a moving violation.

If convicted, penalties for even a first -time DWI include:

  • License suspension for one year
  • Up to a $200 fine
  • Between 24 hours and 60 days in jail
  • Classes for substance abuse
  • Probation up to 2 years

If you were validly stopped and the officer suspected DWI, they most likely informed you they wanted you to undergo one or more of the various field sobriety tests. These tests are often administered incorrectly and the results could be successfully challenged, either prior to trial or in court.
