What is the statue of limitations on a DWI charge in NC?
I was arrested for DUI in Aug.2006. It was dismissed with leave after no prosecution was made over one yr. and the arresting officer failed to appear in court. Now in Nov.2008 they come back and summons me back to court over the same case. Has this not violated the statue of limitations on a misdemeanor in NC.?
Best Answer :
That would depend when the charge was refiled and the date it was dismissed. They have two years from the date of dismissal.
Speak with a lawyer.
NC Law Officer.
