The different levels of DUIs in North Carolina

In the state of North Carolina, most cases of driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol are classified as misdemeanors. However, there are five misdemeanor levels, all carrying different penalties. Understanding the consequences associated with each level can help defendants be more informed about the options and what will happen in the case of a conviction.

What are the consequences of underage driving while intoxicated?

According to the North Carolina Department of Transportation, nearly 40 teens between 16 and 19 years of age suffered fatal injuries on our state's roads in 2009 alone. Further, 24 of these fatal crashes involved alcohol. As part of the North Carolina Governor's Highway Safety Program, the DOT has provided information about the consequences for underage drivers who drive while intoxicated. Although the law protects children of all ages, there are still very serious penalties associated with underage DUIs.
