DWI Offense in Lawrence New Jersey
A conviction in Lawrence, for even a first offense DWI, will result in a mandatory loss of your driving privileges in this state. Subsequent offenses will expose you to even harsher penalties including community service, installation of an ignition interlock device, and jail time. Moreover, the State of New Jersey does not recognize a hardship license or a temporary license even for the sole purpose of driving to and from work if you are suspended for DWI or Refusal conviction. This puts many residents in a tough situation who rely on long distance commuting for their jobs and school. It is also important to know that this situation is compounded due to the fact that there is no plea bargaining for drunk driving offenses in New Jersey. However, that does not mean that your circumstances are hopeless or that there is nothing that can be done. An experienced drunk driving attorney can analyze the evidence in the state’s case against you to pinpoint weaknesses and holes in their proofs. We can then expound on this information to maneuver in getting your penalties reduced or charges dismissed.
A DWI ticket is sometimes accompanied by a separate charge of Refusal if you declined to take the breath test or failed to give an adequate reading. These charges as well as any other ancillary traffic violations will be held in the Lawrenceville Municipal Court. Your attorney will have to conference the issues of your case with the municipal prosecutor in an effort to come to a satisfactory outcome given the circumstances of your charge. Eventually these issues may have to be heard and decided before the judge during a hearing or in the form of a brief. DWI cases are hard and tough to defend in New Jersey but you can greatly increase your chances by hiring an experienced lawyer who practices predominantly drunk driving cases. Ultimately, any individual charged with a D.W.I. can simply plead guilty. However, one should avail themselves to every possible defense, considering the harsh consequences that result from a DUI conviction.
