My husband is currently incarcerated for a dwi and a driving while licensed revoked in n.c.He was sentenced to no min but max of 8 months.They automatically took off 60 days before he was transferred to state which dropped it down to 6 months.I am trying to figure out exactly how much more time he can get off and what time he will actually be gone.I read that in n.c. you can be parolled on a dui charge,i do not want to have false hopes about a quick release.SOME ONE please give me some inside info

Hi there & Welcome to PTO! :welcome:

Here is a link to the Offender Search (http://webapps6.doc.state.nc.us/opi/offendersearch.do?method=list) where you can get some of the logistics of things...You will see a projected release date, minimum & maximum term, etc.

Also, reading over the Handbook for Family/Friends - NC DOC (http://www.doc.state.nc.us/Publications/2010Handbook.pdf) could prove useful for you as well.

I'm sure if others have some info they will chime in as well, but hope this helps a little! ;)

All the Best ~ T.
