State v. Kostick, 233 N.C. App. 62 (Mar. 18, 2014)

In this DWI case, the trial court did not err by denying the defendant’s Knoll motion. The defendant argued that the magistrate violated his rights to a timely pretrial release by setting a $500 bond and holding him in jail for approximately three hours and 50 minutes. The court found that evidence supported the conclusion that the magistrate properly informed the defendant of his rights and that the magistrate properly considered all of the evidence when setting the $500 bond.
