Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Thank you! I have been trying to figure out how to get back in the system and notify someone that I still need to ask question. What I was getting to is the Highway Patrol Officer Flat out lied or got mixed up because the accident was at 10:30 pm on 9/12/13 not 12:27 am on 9/13/13. The weather was thunder storms and lightning not clear and the visibility was very hazy not clear as the officer stated. Furthermore how can he come up with 45 mph and reckless driving? The officer did not see me. My neighbor that got to the scene at 10:40 PM was the 1st to see me and can witness the weather, time and owl flying around. I can't afford a reckless driving on my driving record. I have not reported anything to my insurance company yet. I don't really quite know what to ask you because there are so many variables. I am going to get a lawyer and have made some connections scheduled to talk tomorrow! I am not guilty am think the officer was mad because I went on home and he thought for sure I would be impaired and fail a alcohol or drug test and I did not so it made him madder. I guess my question is what to do about the false information on the citation and should I contact my insurance company before talking to attorney. I question his going through my stuff at my home looking for drugs. If there is an option to attach to this reply I will attach a copy of the citation. I look very forward to hear from you.

Thank you very much for addressing those issues. I will wait until I speak with an attorney for advice before contacting insurance company. I am researching the State of North Carolina sites for anything I can find that refers to making corrections to the citation data and will call Monday. I also requested local internet weather service to provide weather data for area of accident on 9/12/13 at the time of accident. Any thoughts on his actions coming up to my house on my private 15 acres with the EMS workers and giving me the breathalyzer test, coming in my garage, going through my brief case, medications, showing them to the EMS workers to look up in their book, opening my file cabinet and just because it had vitamins in it telling my wife I was a pill head, and even more. The most important thing is he threatened to go to see the Chancellor at the University where I am a professor and tell him I was driving under the influence and not fit to be teaching over at the university. This would be instant dismissal for me as for my job teaching since 2004. Just comment on what you can or I'll pay more if necessary. The attorney is to call me Monday afternoon sometime. Thank you very much.
