Something doesn't totally add up. First thing is going to be to contact the NCDMV (won't let me list phone number) and find out exactly what is still unresolved (get docket #s and counties).

Once you know what is unresolved, probably the next thing is to get those cases back on the docket to be resolved. Depends what is out there and the county the charges are in as to what the outcome might be.

We handle 15 counties, so depending on what county it is in, we may be able to help.

Re: i need help

Assuming you were properly notified of the court dates, there is likely a warrant/capias for your arrest for failure to appear. I would contact the clerk's office and get a status or go online for the information. If these DUI's were in Florida, there is a mandatory jail sentence if convicted along with a 5 year driver license revocation. You need to hire a lawyer for assistance as these are serious allegations. Good luck.
