I am 43 years old and just completed by IDRC for my 2nd DUI in NJ. However, my first DUI offense was over 20 years ago.
I was automatically recommended for an ASSESSMENT based solely on the fact that this is my 2nd DUI . Do they have the right to recommend me to an assessment for a possible 12 week program based on something that happened 20 years ago? Shouldn't this be treated as a first offense? Extra info - in the past 20 years I have a spotless clean driving record and no other arrests.
It likely was sentenced as a first offense because of the ten year stepdown but it is still a 2nd offense. The IDRC is...
Error on police report
I was stopped for a DUI and the case has been adjourned 3 times. While there are other issues that is feel is bogus about the stop, the most important thing I think is that there is a huge error on the police report narrative. There is a paragraph about a completely different person's stop. The prosecutor was not impressed with this defense. Also, I was taken to one police station only to find out their breathalyzer wasn't working so I was taken to another police station. Also, the description of my balance and blood shot eyes was never acknowledge for the fact that I was on 4 different medications for depression and anxiety. Should I fight or give in because the prosecutor isn't budging.

Would it be advisable for me to file a hardship motion with the court requesting that interlock installation be waived?
I was convicted of dui in June 2014 - this was my first offense, first time ever in trouble with law enforcement - however, because my bac reading was over .15, in addition to license suspension for 7 months, I was to install an interlock device during suspension, and for 7 months following reinstatement -technically, a total of 14 months, which would have concluded in Aug 2015. Because no longer able to drive, I had to seek alternative employment, as my job was not on any public trans. schedule. Due to considerably less pay. and addition of DUI fines, I had no choice but to file bankruptcy in Nov. 2015. Not long after filing bankruptcy, I received a notice from DMV stating I was not responsible for DMV surcharge fines 'at this time' and could have license reinstated. After paying $200, was told I had to provide certificate to prove I had interlock installed. Explained I gave up my car when I lost license, and was told I could provide anybody's interlock certificate - in so many words, after many questions to reconfirm what I was being told.
The judge does not have discretion to waive your interlock. It id mandatory with a BAC of .15.
