One man’s DWI could change state laws

Posted on January 3rd, 2012 No Comments

Late last month, a Raleigh man was arrested for drunk driving two times within four hours.

He was arrested and taken to the Wake County Jail for his first offense and released two hours later, still intoxicated. After taking a cab to his car, he drove home where police were waiting to arrest him again. Many have scrutinized the jail for releasing the man while he was still drunk and Wake County’s clerk of court states that statutes will need to be reviewed after this incident.

Judges can set bonds and are legally allowed to release drunk drivers while still intoxicated if they believe the accused are not a threat to themselves or others. Some lawmakers want to set up more training for judges and to clarify what constitutes as a danger to others.

If you or someone you love has been charged with drunk driving, contact the Raleigh drunk driving defense lawyers of the Law Office of Jim Black today by calling 919-600-4609.
