DWI

Multiple Charges Dismissed in DWI Case

Recently, an individual in NC was charged with the following offenses:

  • Driving while impaired (DWI)
  • Two counts of an open container of alcohol

Wanting to avoid the statutory and collateral consequences that could stem from a conviction on these offenses, the individual reached out to Goolsby Law Firm for help.

Attorney Thom Goolsby began working on the client’s case and successfully argued at trial that there was no probable cause for arrest in connection with the DWI charge. Due to attorney Goolsby’s skilled trial tactics, one of the open container charges was also dismissed. A plea was entered for the second open container charge, and as such, the client only had to pay court cost.

Criminal

Veteran Facing Criminal Charges Found Not Guilty of Two Offenses

When a disabled veteran was found with drug paraphernalia and marijuana in his vehicle, he was arrested and charged. To make matters worse, the officer who stopped him also charged the man with DWI (driving while impaired) and open container in a motor vehicle. Wanting to avoid the harsh penalties that would come from convictions on these offenses, the man reached out to Goolsby Law Firm for help.

Attorney Thom Goolsby took the case to trial, where the client denied the impaired driving charge. Working hard to protect the client’s freedom and rights, attorney Goolsby advocated on the veteran’s behalf. As such, the client was found not guilty of the DWI and paraphernalia charges. While he was guilty of marijuana possession and the open container charge, he was simply ordered to pay court costs.

Traffic

Charges Dismissed in Driving-Related Case

When a Goolsby Law Firm client was charged with hit and run and failure to maintain lane control, she knew they needed attorney Thom Goolsby’s help. To make the situation more complicated, the failure to maintain lane control charge allegedly caused property damage to another vehicle.

As Attorney Goolsby got to work putting together a defense for the client, she denied driving carelessly and recklessly. With his skill set put to good use, Attorney Goolsby had both of her charges dismissed. As a result, no license points were assessed to the client’s insurance. A conviction for careless and reckless driving carries four points and could result in an 80% increase in rates for three full years.

DWI/DUI

Alleged Impaired Driver Found Not Guilty in Case Involving Multiple Charges

Recently, a North Carolina man found himself facing charges for both DWI (driving while impaired) and Hit & Run after allegedly driving while drunk, striking another vehicle and driving away. Knowing the penalties that could stem from a conviction on either offense — including incarceration, fines, and more — he reached out to Goolsby Law Firm for help.

The client pled not guilty to the DWI, and he admitted to striking the other vehicle involved in the hit and run. Through a strong defense strategy at trial, Attorney Thom Goolsby was able to secure a not guilty verdict for the DWI charge. In relation to the hit and run charge, he was ordered to pay court costs and a $100 fine.

Drug Crimes

No Active Sentence in Drug Case

Recently, a client of Goolsby Law Firm was charged with drug possession. To make matters more complicated, the individual had a lengthy criminal record, so the potential sentence for a conviction on this new charge could be severe. After getting to work on the case, Attorney Thom Goolsby was able to negotiate a plea so the drug possession charge would be classified as a misdemeanor, not the original felony. As such, the client did not have to serve an active sentence. He was simply ordered to pay court costs and a fine.
