Will I be asked about my criminal background at Monmouth County, NJ IDRC for a first time offender of a DUI?
I have already received my DMV letter saying I get my license back this week after I complete the program. Do I get asked about my criminal record during the 12 hour IDRC program? How do I answer if they do? I am a first time offender with no past driving record. To prevent going to a 16 week program, do I have to tell them about my past addiction prior to the arrest? I have not drank since I have been arrested. I was sober a year before this arrest and the day of relapse, I got arrested. I have priors of drug arrests. What do I do? Please help! Thanks!
I would certainly suggest that you answer all of their questions truthfully. That is certainly your best bet. You...
I don't understand Monmouth County IDRC evaluation
I went to my first day at IDRC. I have to complete 12 hours and tomorrow I finish. I will see the counsolor tomorrow for the screening. They explained the point system for the further treatment but I dont understand it. I have more than 6 months clean, I am in full time school, full time job, go to meetings, and volunteer at support groups. DMV sent me a letter saying I can restore my license this thursday and on thursday my suspension is done. How is the IDRC able to tell ME if I need treatment when I am sober? If they do, do I still get my license back thursday? If not how am i supposed to get to treatment? I also dont have time for that... can someone please help me with these questions. Im so stressed out I was all prepared to get my license then today I find out that we all have a possibility of going to treatment?
The IDRC is free to assign extra work you need to do. Be careful of your attitude to them.
Prison and then rehab
My brother was sentenced to 90 days in jail and 90 days in rehab for a fourth dui plus the 10 yr loss of license. He received paperwork in jail saying his release date and he thinks he's going to be able to just leave and not go to rehab. He's supposed to start applying for state funded rehab after he serves 60 days. His plan Ian to try and get over on the system. Won't they catch this mistake? How does it work when the judge clearly ordered 90 and 90. I'm afraid he will lose the opportunity to go to rehab if he tries to screw the system. It's these kinds of poor choices that landed him there in the first place. Thanks
If the court finds out he will be sentenced to do all the time in jail-no rehab. They will find out sooner or later. He...
I have been issued an NJ disorderly persons ofns for driving while suspended while being suspended for DUI, the law is 2c:40-26b
My license had been suspended for 2 years for 2nd offense DUI(I blew 089) first in 09 and 2nd in 2016. I got pulled over within 50 yrds of my house, i had to move a car from the driveway to let medical transport pickup my father for his cancer treatment. While doing so I blocked traffic with the car to allow the med transport to get back out - one of those cars was a cop who then pulled me over, ran my info and then wrote me up for not having a breathelyzer as well as the new law level 4 offense 2c:40-26b(driving suspended for DUI). Looking over 2c:40-26b it has a mandatory 180days in jail tied to it, is reviewed at the County level(not municipal) and seems to be never plead down to a lesser offense. The stakes for me are severe: I am a widower with 4 children all under 9 years old. I also support my elderly parents. These people need me working and home. I need the best lawyer, that has knowledge of this new law and significant history in monmouth county. This person should also be able to work closely on a plea ending in no jail/alternative incarceration(which i will pay for myself). I can't lose my kids, I must cover my parents and not lose my job. $ no object
You are correct in one thing, you need the best lawyer you can afford. Prosecutors are not legally allowed to plead...

Since this is under DUI, the courts are not very tolerant of even one of these in NJ. However, with three, if found...

I pled guity in NJ to DWI and was sentenced to 7 months. I had a prior DWI in another state, and that other state suspended me
for two years. Since I was suspended in NJ for only seven months, I thought I could get a license in NJ. Now DMV is telling me that I cannot get a license here until I get a letter from the OTHER state. Can DMV in NJ impose this requirement?
Yes. They can. NJ is one of 45 States which is part of the interstate compact. They will treat your prior DWI as if it...
