Can an adjournment be requested for a DWI in order to hire an attorney without entering a plea on the spot at the arraignment?
For example if someone needs time to hire an attorney in order to discuss their case before entering a plea? Is it possible to request postponement at the first court date without entering a plea right then and there at that time? Thanks in advance.
Yes. The judge will enter a not guilty plea for you and allow you time to hire a lawyer.
Effect of DWI during a conditional dismissal for misdemeanor shoplifting?
According to C.2C:43-13.4-5 "If, at the end of the term of the conditional dismissal, the defendant has not been convicted of any subsequent petty disorderly persons offense, disorderly persons offense or crime under any law of the United States, this State or any other state, and has complied with any other terms and conditions imposed by the court, the court may terminate the probation monitoring and dismiss the proceedings against the defendant." Since DWI is not a disorderly person offense or "crime", I read this to mean it would be inapplicable to possibly violating the terms of conditional dismissal. Would you agree? Thanks very much.

When does a PENDING DWI case show up on your DMV record in NJ?
Based on my research, I am under the understanding a DWI does not get processed as a criminal arrest and processed as a traffic violation. My case is still pending. However, when are the tickets reported to the DMV and when do they show up on the DMV records? A ballpark estimate would be helpful. Does the DMV record include all cases (open and closed) or does it only include closed cases? Any insight would be helpful.
Nothing will appear on your abstract unless you are convicted.
