My 20 year old daughter was arrested by a State Trooper. She took a breathalyzer but I do not know the levels, as the report is not yet complete. She was also cited for careless driving, improper lane change and underage drinking. She's never been in trouble. She was driving a car in my name and is listed as an insured on my policy. Should I get an attorney, or would it be a waste of money? I'm currently unemployed but hear public defenders work for the State and not to use one. I'm also very worried about my insurance being dropped. If she surrenders her license until she can afford her own policy, will my rates still be high? I have an impeccable driving record.
You should RUN, not walk but RUN to an experienced DWI defense lawyer. You should LOAN your daughter the money for a...
I was stopped at a dwi checkpoint and was asked if i had been drinking.I told the officer i had a few beers about an hour earlier which is the truth.I was told to pull up to a parking space and a guy that was not in uniform (maybe a detective) told me to step out of the car. He administered 2 sobriety tests witch i did with no problem.Then he called over another officer in uniform and he gave me the test that involves following a pen with my eyes. After that he then placed me under arrest for DWI. While at the police station i blew a .15 bac.What are my chances of getting the penalties reduced to say a 3 month suspension. Is that common for first time offenders.Thanks
If I'm not mistaken, you asked the same question yesterday. The answer hasn't changed. The penalties are based off the...
My car was not even started and they did the field sobriety test and said I failed the eye test. they only did that test and stand on 1 leg test i past that . I admitted i had a couple of glasses of wine earlier. I had gastric bypass done and my breating test came back almost 2 times the legal limit...I was flawed...I didnt feel drunk and hadnt eatin but never thought for a min i would fail the test! I have a clean record no tickets and was wondering if the bypass surgery is what caused a false reading....??? I cant afford to loose my lisence as I have my own business and 2 children...Any advise would help greatly.
The breathalyzer is a machine, not an instrument. It only estimates your blood alcohol level and can be challenged in...
Will I still have to pay both fines in both states if I change my license?
This is a good question. It may be best to ask the NJMVC directly as well. Assuming you do not change your license...

My Ex husband lost his license in Nov 2011 for 3rd DUI He said it was now only a 2nd offense and he would be getting his license back in Mar of 2014. In Jan 2014, he was ordered to go to Rehab instead of jail. He never tells the truth and I am not sure if he would have had to do his rehab/jail time right at the time of the arrest or over two years later? I am scared for my kids lives when they are with him. Do you know if this possibly sounds correct or like he received a subsequent DUI charge. He also was arrested in Florida for theft in Jan 2014 and had a 2003 theft charge in the past. I do not know where to turn for facts. Please help Thank you Desiree
These facts as to the DUI make no sense, so I think your husband is lying to you. Consult an attorney as to getting a...
