Do You Know Where Your Registration and Insurance Card Are?

NC-DWI

If you have ever been pulled over, you know that it can be a nerve-wracking experience. The officer stands by while you fumble through your glove box (the one you haven’t cleaned out in months) searching for your insurance and registration. Most officers understand that you may have to look for your registration and insurance card, but if the officer already suspects you have been driving drunk, having trouble finding your registration and insurance could be viewed as an additional sign that you are impaired.

Keeping your registration and insurance together in small pouch can make them easy to grab and may make a traffic stop go more smoothly. Additionally, keeping your driver’s license in an easy-to-access place can help also.

If you are pulled over and issued a ticket or arrested for driving while impaired in Wake County, NC, contact The Law Offices of Wiley Nickel at (919) 585-1486 for a free consultation. Our offices are conveniently located in Cary, NC, on Weston Parkway just off of I-40.

What to Do if You Have Received Your First Traffic Ticket in North Carolina

Wake-County-Traffic-Ticket

If you have received your first traffic ticket ever in North Carolina, don’t panic – getting pulled over happens to the best of us. Many traffic tickets can be taken care of quickly by an attorney without you ever having to appear in court.

When you were pulled over and issued a traffic citation, the officer may have told you when you need to appear in court. If he did not, you can find this date on the ticket. You or your attorney MUST appear for this court date. On this court date, you or your attorney will speak with the assistant district attorney about your options. You may have the option to have the charges reduced or even dismissed, but often you must know what to ask for.

Here, it may be much easier to let an attorney do this for you. Attorneys Wiley Nickel and Kristi Haddock can go to your court date for you so you don’t have to miss work and worry about parking in downtown Raleigh. Call The Law Office of Wiley Nickel at (919) 585-1486 to speak to an attorney about how we can help you get the best result. This could include lower fines, avoiding points on your license, and not having your car insurance rates increase.

Should I Pay My Wake County Traffic Ticket Online?

Wake-County-Pay-Speeding-Ticket-Online

If you have recently received a traffic ticket, you may have the option to pay it online and be done with it. But, this could result in you paying much more than you need to or even having the charge on your record when it doesn’t need to be. Before you pay your ticket online, call The Law Offices of Wiley Nickel at (919) 585-1486 to see if we can help reduce the charges or even have them dismissed.

We can help determine if the District Attorney may be willing to work with you to reduce your charge. This might be possible through producing documentation from your insurance company, taking traffic school courses, or requesting a Prayer for Judgment Continued. However, you will not be able to receive a more favorable outcome if you simply pay your ticket online.

Call us and let us see if you may be eligible for a reduced charge or dismissal. Not only will we go to court for you, we may be able to save you money and points on your license. Wiley Nickel and Kristi Haddock are experienced attorneys who handle a large volume of traffic tickets each year. Email Wiley at wiley@wileynickel.com or kristi@wileynickel.com.

Understanding Wake County and Chatham County Traffic Tickets and Prayer for Judgments/PJCs in North Carolina

A Prayer for Judgment Continued (referred to as PJC) is unique to North Carolina. Only a judge may grant you a PJC, and this outcome is normally reserved for traffic violations, but sometimes can be used for low-level misdemeanors. When a PJC is granted, you typically must only pay cost of courts, with no additional fines or fees.

The DMV allows two PJCs every 5 years. If you are granted a third PJC within the 5 year period, the DMV will ignore it, which will result in an increase in your points. North Carolina Insurance policy allows for one PJC every 3 years for insurance point purposes. That includes everyone else on your car insurance policy.  If you or anyone else on your policy is granted a second PJC within that 3 year period, your insurance will ignore both PJCs which will result in an increase of your rate. If you plan to use PJC, you need to make sure that nobody on your insurance policy has been granted one in the last three years.

If your traffic ticket is a minor offense that could be reduced to a non-moving violation like an improper equipment, or reduced to a speed that would not increase your insurance, we advise our clients to save their PJC for future use. It is generally worth it to take a driving course, or pay an additional fine rather than use a PJC when it is not necessary. For many clients, a reduction to the non-moving violation of Improper Equipment is the best option.

If you have a speeding or traffic ticket in Wake or Chatham County, please call The Law Offices of Wiley Nickel at (919) 585-1486 to discuss the best options for your specific traffic citation.  Our office is located at 2401 Weston Parkway in Cary and we offer free consultations over the phone and in the office.

Driving While License Revoked in Raleigh, North Carolina

Getting a ticket for driving while license revoked (DWLR) is a serious offense, and you need the representation of an experienced Raleigh traffic ticket attorney. In North Carolina, DWLR is a Class 3 misdemeanor that can carry an active sentence of up to 20 days in jail and hefty fines. A conviction of DWLR also carries automatic revocation of your license for one year. Any subsequent convictions of DWLR can lead to a permanent revocation of your North Carolina driving privileges.

Our goal is to get you back on the road

We realize that not having a valid driver’s license can create tremendous hardships on you and your family. Our client’s ability to drive is an essential part of their daily existence and we will do everything in our power to get your driving privileges reinstated. If your license has been taken away because of old traffic tickets or unpaid fines, our firm can help you clear up those matters so that you will be eligible to obtain a valid driver’s license.

Aggressive DWLR defense in Raleigh, NC

There are multiple ways to fight a DWLR, if you hire an experienced traffic and criminal defense attorney. Our attorneys are in traffic court on a daily basis. We carefully analyze each individual case and will work with prosecutors to get your traffic matter dismissed or plead down to a lesser offense.  It’s also important to make sure that the State of North Carolina can prove their case against you beyond a reasonable doubt and this means making sure that the police show up to court, that they had reasonable suspicion to pull you over and that when they show up to court they have a certified copy of your North Carolina driving record in order to prove the required elements of the case against you. For many clients, a Prayer for Judgment Continued (PJC) is also an option, we fight hard for PJCs in necessary cases. At The Law Offices of Wiley Nickel, our goal is to save you time and money and get you back on the road as soon as possible.

Prayer For Judgement (PJC)

  • What is a Prayer for Judgement?
    • A Prayer for Judgement, or PJC, is something that is unique to North Carolina that only a judge can grant. Basically, this allows you to plead guilty to a crime, without having the plea entered against you, and you will only have to pay the costs of court, no other fines or fees. Typically, these are reserved for traffic violations or petty misdemeanors.
  • What’s the catch?

    • A judge cannot grant a PJC on a speeding ticket over 15 mph, or a DWI.

    • You’re pleading guilty before your PJC is approved. Many times, defendants will go to court without an attorney and attempt to use their PJC. The prosecutor may tell you that they’re not against it, but the judge will have to approve of this, and by doing so, you’ve already pre-admitted to guilt and the judge might not be able to grant your PJC.

    • The DMV and insurance policies have their own policies regarding PJCs.

      • The DMV will only recognize two PJCs every five years.

      • Insurance policies will only recognize one PJC every three years.

  • Advice while considering a PJC...

    • Save your PJC! Each county has different policies, some will reduce speeding tickets or make you attend traffic school, it is best to not use a PJC here.

    • Be careful while trying to use a PJC, it is best to get an attorney so that you don’t admit to guilt for something you cannot use your PJC on, or something you could get reduced charges on. Save your record and your future by hiring an attorney.

New Changes to Misdemeanor Crime Sentences in North Carolina - Penalties will be lowered

The new budget contains provisions that will impact misdemeanor sentencing and the appointment of counsel.  This change will effect thousands of cases each year.

Republican leaders in both chambers have endorsed the bill. The General Assembly is expected to approve it in the next two days, and Governor McCrory is expected to sign it.

Change to Structured Sentencing grid.

 

Section 18B.13.(a) of the budget changes the misdemeanor Structured Sentencing grid as follows, effective for offenses committed on or after December 1, 2013:

 

Many Class 3 misdemeanors will only be punishable by a fine.  The same section states that “[u]nless otherwise provided for a specific offense, the judgment for a person convicted of a Class 3 misdemeanor who has no more than three prior convictions shall consist only of a fine.” Fines for Class 3 misdemeanors generally may not exceed $200. G.S. 15A-1340.23(b).

In addition to changing the punishments for Class 3 misdemeanors, the budget also creates more of them. Section 18B.14 reclassifies a number of misdemeanors – most currently Class 2 – as Class 3 offenses. The new Class 3 misdemeanors include:

» Obtaining property by worthless check, G.S. 14-106

» Simple worthless check, G.S. 14-107

» Failure to return hired property, G.S. 14-167

» Conversion by bailee, G.S. 14-168.1

» Failure to return rental property with purchase option, G.S. 14-168.4

» DWLR, G.S. 20-28 (unless revoked for DWI, then still Class 1)

» Certain motor vehicle misdemeanors that were Class 2 under G.S. 20-35, including: » Most NOLs, G.S. 20-7

» Failure to tell DMV of address change by driver, G.S. 20-7.1

» Allowing vehicle to be driven by unlicensed person, G.S. 20-34

» Certain motor vehicle misdemeanors that were Class 2 under 20-176, including: » Failure to carry registration card in vehicle, G.S. 20-57(c)

» Failure to sign registration card, G.S. 20-57(c)

» Failure to tell DMV of address change by vehicle, G.S. 20-67

» Certain license plate/registration violations, G.S. 20-111

» Window tinting violations, G.S. 20-127(d)

» Misdemeanor speeding, G.S. 20-141(j1)

» No insurance, G.S. 20-313(a)

» Repeat fishing without a license, G.S. 113-135(a) (referring to 113-174.1 and -270.1B)

Also, section 18B.15 of the budget reclassifies a number of boating safety offenses from Class 3 misdemeanors to infractions.

 

A main goal of these provisions was to save money on court appointed counsel for indigent defendants.  The report states that IDS’s budget (the agency that provides money for court appointed lawyers) will be reduced by $2,000,000 annually because the budget “[r]eclassifies low-level misdemeanors that rarely result in incarceration as Class 3 misdemeanors or infractions and modifies the sentencing structure for Class 3 misdemeanors so that the first three charges are fineable offenses. With no possibility of incarceration, these offenses do not require legal counsel.”

The changes made by the budget will provide that a defendant charged only with a Class 3 misdemeanor, and who has no more than three prior convictions, will be facing a potential sentence of a fine of $200 or less.

RALEIGH SUSPENDED DRIVERS LICENSE LAWYER or DWLR

RALEIGH SUSPENDED DRIVERS LICENSE LAWYER

North Carolina Revoked Drivers License Attorney

North Carolina law calls for automatic drivers license suspension whenever a driver collects too many tickets within a year to year and a half period, it sometimes happens that a driver is pulled over on a fresh violation only to discover that he or she is already driving on a suspended or revoked license.  Many people are unaware that they may be driving without a valid license. If you have been charged with driving while revoked or suspended, call us today at 919-585-1486 for a free consultation or contact us online to learn how you can avoid the worst consequences of a ticket for driving while revoked or suspended — an additional suspension of 12 months or longer.

Cited While Driving While Revoked (DWLR)?

Defense attorney Wiley Nickel has a thorough knowledge of the North Carolina traffic code, and also understands the practical workings of the criminal justice system in Wake County. Attorney Wiley Nickel uses this knowledge and experience to help his clients resolve serious driver's license problems without lengthy suspension periods.

The key to protecting your license in the face of a driving while revoked ticket is to take the right legal path in the proper order. This might involve filing one or more motions to reopen old traffic violations before dealing with the current ticket. It might mean seeking relief on prior tickets in multiple counties. Whatever approach best suits your particular circumstances, you can depend on Criminal Defense Lawyer Wiley Nickel to plot a good path and explain it in terms you can understand.

Failure to Appear in Court Can Result in License Suspension

There are several ways to get your license suspended or revoked in North Carolina: any DWI conviction without applying for a hardship license, accumulating too many points against your license, or even failing to show up for a court date if you haven't paid the ticket beforehand.  Many clients are surprised to learn that they are driving without a valid license simply because they didn't pay an old speeding ticket or minor traffic citation.

In any case, most drivers who deal with tickets for driving while revoked discover that resolving the problem themselves normally results in an additional year's suspension.  If you have a suspension we might be able to help you get a temporary driving permit.

Motion for Appropriate Relief (MAR) by Wake County Traffic Attorney Wiley Nickel

Have you ever received a speeding ticket in North Carolina? Did you just pay it off by mailing back the citation with payment?  If you did that you probably found that your insurance rates went through the roof.  Filing a motion for appropriate relief may be a way to reverse the bad effects caused by that decision.

When you pay a traffic ticket you are pleading guilty.  When you plead guilty to a traffic offense, points are applied to your driving record and to your insurance record.  What does this mean?  It means your insurance rates will increase.  In North Carolina, insurance companies can surcharge you per point placed on your record. This is why it is good to consult with Attorney before your scheduled court date.  My advice is DO NOT pay off your Raleigh area traffic ticket until you speak with a Wake County Speeding Ticket Attorney.

If you are looking for a Traffic Defense Attorney and or an Attorney to handle a speeding ticket in Wake County Please Call The Law Offices of Wiley Nickel, PLLC at 919-585-1486.

If you paid your ticket and are seeking to escape the consequences of that mistake there is a way to reverse the points by having the case re-opened.  This is called a motion for appropriate relief. Legal documents must be filed and served on the District Attorney’s office requesting that the case be re-opened. You should contact a traffic ticket lawyer in your area to assist you with this. It is not cheap, but it will save you insurance points and money in the long run.

The Law Offices of Wiley Nickel assists clients with representation with Wake County Traffic Tickets, Traffic tickets in Raleigh, License Restorations, reckless driving charges, high speed violations, warrant strikes, and other infractions.  Feel free to contact us at 919-585-1486 for a free consultation.
