Raleigh Concert Criminal Charges: The Parking Lot
Wiley Team in front of Door.jpeg

Concerts are a big part of the entertainment scene in Wake County, North Carolina and bring large groups of people together. However, when all these people show up in one place, the police are often in the area and misdemeanor charges are often filed. There is a variety of charges that one could reasonably acquire while attending a show. The first part of any concert is figuring out the parking situation for the night, and there is no shortage of things that can go wrong in the lot.  Many police or officers from the NC Alcohol Law Enforcement (ALE) and other police agencies patrol the parking lots looking for violations. These Wake County Criminal Misdemeanor charges can include:

·    Underage Drinking

· Open Container

·    Marijuana Possession

·    Driving While Intoxicated

·    Drunk and Disorderly Conduct

Citations Issued at Concerts in the Raleigh Area
A report from NJ.com (New Jersey) showed that the highest number of citations at concerts were for

1. Disorderly conduct

2. Underage alcohol consumption.  

Some of these activities are well within the range of normal activity for teenagers. There are also lower standards of privacy while standing in a public place, and even just the smell of marijuana could prompt an officer to search your vehicle. Please be wary when attending a show, as law enforcement agents will be on the lookout for these crimes.  The good news for Wake County is that there are often good options for a dismissal of charges for first offenders but it’s important to contact Raleigh Concert Lawyer right away if you are charged with a crime at a concert venue in Wake County.

A DWI Charge Does Not Mean You’re Guilty. When Your Future Is At Stake An Experience DWI Attorney Makes Your Rights A Priority
Apex DWI Lawyer

Driving while impaired (DWI) is the official criminal charge for people accused of driving under the influence (DUI) in Wake County North Carolina. Regardless of its name, a DWI is a serious offense that could ruin your career and your personal life. North Carolina laws do not allow for expungement of DWI convictions so a conviction cannot be removed from your record. With penalties including steep fines, the loss of your driver’s license, massive insurance hikes, long periods of probation, and even the possibility of time behind bars, the mistake people usually make when facing a DWI in North Carolina is taking the situation too lightly or casually accepting a guilty plea without consulting an experienced DWI attorney about the North Carolina DWI/criminal justice process.

You may believe that it’s in your best interest to cooperate with the Wake County District Attorney’s Office because you may think you’re guilty just by being charged, but the truth is that you need to look out for yourself. By working with a highly-skilled Raleigh DWI lawyer, you can ensure your case is appropriately handled and you get the best possible outcome for your Raleigh DWI. This could mean a complete dismissal of the charge, an acquittal, or reducing the offense to something more consistent with the facts.
