In North Carolina the offense is known as Driving While Impaired. Under certain circumstances, it can be a felony. The most common way for the charge to rise to felony status is to have multiple prior convictions of DWI withing a certain period of time.
DWI under North Carolina Law is a misdemeanor not a felony. The Statute is NCGS 20-138.1. If the person has three prior DWI convictions in the last ten years the charge can be enhanced to a felony. If you need further details, you can review videos on the topic at our web site www.NCLawyer.com .
