A friend of mine recently had her car impounded after her boyfriend was stopped for a DUI, his third. His license was previously revoked. Apparently, when she called to find out how to get her car back, the D.A. told her the only way to get the car back was to claim it was stolen and swear out a complaint against her boyfriend. That's obviously not going to happen.
My question is, where can I find some info on the laws regarding the seizure of private property with regards to a DUI offense. This happened in the state of North Carolina. I'd like to read up on the laws before talking to the D.A. and a quick Google search didn't turn up anything useful.
The girl is a real sweet kid and with her having a baby any day now, I'd like to help her get the car back. ANY HELP, would be greatly appreciated. If you have something that may help and don't feel like posting it on the board, you can P.M. me. Any info sent in a P.M. will forever be treated with the utmost privacy and respect.
