Would a judge sentence a 77 year old woman to jail for driving with a suspended license in NJ?
My mother is 77 years old and lives in a senior community in town..I work 2 jobs and could not spend time with her - I think she was depressed and went to have a few drinks andwas caught one night driving home drunk. She did it again. We went to court and she had to pay fines and do community service in town. She had problems with the senior community for smoking in her unit and we were told she could not smoke inher unit or so many feet fromoutside her residence. She went in her car just up the road to smoke and someone rated her out and the cops came....I obtained the public defender and she said she wil probably have to go to jail for 6moths - she asked me to obtain something in writing from her Doctor to help prevent this. Will they really sentence a 77 yr old to jail?
if she was driving while revoked for DWI there is a mandatory jail sentence. She can do half of that in a rehab...
I am attending a 12 hour IDRC over the next two days in Somerset County. What are my chances of avoiding further penalty?
I am a first time alcohol offender. My breath test was thrown out in court due to many issues, but was high (over .15). I am not a heavy drinker and haven't consumed any alcohol but for a beer or wine with dinner three or four times in the last 7 months.

Why do I need a 16 week idrc course when my dui was 13 years ago and my blood alcohol content was.01?
I just recently started trying to get on track with my license and the counselor told me I have to do this 16 week course and it doesn't work around my schedule. I know people that got in a drunk driving accident and had beer in the cup holder and only do a 12 hour course..
If this is what DMV is requiring, you just need to take a deep breathe and plow through it if you want your license...
Can we beat this
My husband just got arrested for possession of less than 50 grams of marijuana. He was also driving unlicenced on a suspended license which he never had to begin with (second offense in less than 6 months) and reckless driving, and DUI all second time offenses in nj. He is an illegal. What are the chances of him serving time here and how much and what are the fines or is it automatic deportation?
What is important here is your definition of "beat this." I don't know anything about the facts of your husband's case...
Is it possible to be charged with DUI in NJ when no blood or breath test was taken?
A family member was stopped, given a field sobriety test, failed, arrested, and charged with DUI. This person has (for years) digestion issues which causes them to burp almost constantly. The officer noticed this, and wouldn't administer a breath test. This person was arrested after failing the field sobriety test. After asking the officer to take a breath test (person was confident that they weren't over the legal limit), he still refused to administer the test or take blood. Furthermore, although I'm not sure if it matters or how it works, this person was observed driving/pulled over/arrested outside of the township in which the police officer works. The border of that township is about 3 miles from where this person was stopped. Does he have legal jurisdiction to make a stop here?
Yes you can. When pulled over for a moving violation, where the police officer suspects that the driver may be...
