Is a PJC available for a DWI?

A PJC, a prayer for judgment continued, is a way that someone can resolve a traffic offense without incurring insurance points that can raise insurance rates. A PJC can be used for many different traffic offenses.

However, a PJC cannot be used for DWI offenses. While PJC can be used for a “baby DWI” – a driving after consuming under the age of 21 – it can’t be used in an adult Driving While Impaired charge.

Whether you’ve been charged with a Harnett County DWI, a Wake County DWI, or Durham DWI, a PJC is not available for DWI convictions.
