Many times people are late to court or have a missed N.C. court date. After a period of time. the courts have authority to assess fines related to that failure to appear. Further, the DMV will eventually be notified of that failure to appear, and a person’s driver’s license can be suspended. If that person has not notified the DMV of an address change with their license, it is quite possible they are driving around with a suspended license and don’t even know it. If stopped again, they can then be charged with the charge of driving while license is revoked. Thus, it is extremely important to address failed court appearance issues immediately with a North Carolina criminal lawyer.
