DWI – Driving While Impaired
In North Carolina, it is a criminal offense to be driving a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol or a drug. What many people do not know is that there are several ways for the State to show that you were impaired. Registering a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08% or higher on the Intox EC/IR II alcohol breath measurement instrument is just one of the ways the State can prove its case. The State may also show that you were under influence of an illegal or legal drug, which impaired your ability to operate a motor vehicle.
Facts of each particular case can differ drastically with each case requiring a different course of action. Matthew’s goal is to defend your rights and he will look at all the issues in your case to determine if your case is right for trial. Determining if there was reasonable suspicion for the vehicle stop and probable cause to arrest for suspicion of DWI are just some of the issues Matthew will evaluate. He will also determine if the Intox EC/IR II was properly calibrated and administered during your breath alcohol test, as well as ensure that all constitutional safeguards were followed throughout your entire arrest and booking. Matthew’s experience writing and arguing motions to exclude evidence of impairment will prove valuable to your case.
