My adult daughter had at least 3 dui's and many drug charges - was also caught driving on suspension. Presently does not reside with us in nj, been in and out of jail rehabs.

I was charged with a DUI after a blew my horn at someone the police pulled me over and asked why i blew my horn at him he gave
He gave me a sobriety test and arrested me for DUI. At the station I blew a 0.0 and a DRA gave me a variety of tests and took a urine sample. I got a ticket for DUI, not pulling to the right and not staying in my lane. The DRA said I was under the influence of K2 or spice (synthetic marijurana) My urine test came back clean. I have two prior DUI on my record in NJ. This would be my third. I was not under influence of anything, I stayed my lane because I saw the cop and I pulled to the right when the light went on . I had a shoe box in my car with tobacco and rolling papers. I role my own tobacco. The cop looked opened the shoe box, maybe he thought that was k2 or spice. Does any lawyer have any advice for me as to a defence? I would really appreciate it.

Can I avoid Jail time and a lesser sentence for a 3rd DWI with times in between in New Jersey
So I am 31 years of age and my first DWI was when I was 19 , my second DWI was when I was 22, and my third DWI was when I was 31. I just got arrested this last weds. A little backround is I am an alcoholic. I got sober when I was 22 and was sober for almost 9 years. This May I started drinking again and on July 20th in the AM I got a DWI. I don't think the 10 year rules apply since between my second dwi and my 3rd there were only 9 years. Live was so much better sober that when this happened I realized my experiement to try to moderate my drinking isn't going to happen so I checked my self into a rehab in California. I have a court date on 8/2/16 in a town in morris county NJ. I want to get sober and I know if I don't stay sober something like this or worse is just going to happen to me again and or I can hurt someone by driving and I wouldn't be able to live with myself if that happened. I am having trouble finding an atty because everyone is either trying to underpromise and over deliver but its hard to get a straight anyswer from interviewing them. I want to find an ATTy that will explore every possible angle and fight.
Please do whatever you can work on your sobriety. You are correct that you seem to fall short of the 10 year step down....
