North Carolina amends rules on DWI imprisonment

Posted on January 19th, 2015 No Comments

North Carolina is changing its rules regarding incarceration procedures for individuals who committed driving while impaired offenses and were sentenced to spend time in jail, WBTW reported on January 2.

Before the start of this year, someone who was sentenced for a DWI would likely serve time in a state prison, but with these new laws, that same person can instead be incarcerated in a county jail.

Major George Kenworthy, who hails from the Robeson County Detention Center, noted that DWI offenders should not take delight because of this recent development.

He said being transferred from a state prison to a county jail does not necessarily mean a lighter sentence, and the new rules were just established to free up space in state prisons for criminals who have been convicted of far more violent crimes.
