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.

Dui question
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. Wants to return home to reside with family - I stated "no" because our nj insurance carrier along with other carriers clearly stated they would drop us if she resides with us (considered high risk) in nj. What is the law in nj regarding auto insurance and someone residing in your home that lost their license for 10 years and hasn't paid any restitution. Thank you
Insurance companies are allowed to set conditions for their policy holders. Your daughter is of such a high risk...
