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....
My question is if I do go down to the DMV and they do end up restoring my license could there be ramifications down the line?
I was convicted of a 2nd offence DUI in NJ. I've fulfilled all my court mandated community service, IDRC, alcohol screenings etc. After fulfilling my 2yr suspension I received a letter from the DMV stating that my driving privilege was restored. There was no mention of the interlock install that is mandatory for a 2nd offence DUI. I also called the DMV and they have no record of a court ordered interlock installation/limitation in my records.
Talk to the attorney that handled your 2nd DUI offense. There are risks of later ramifications. Good luck.
I surrendered my NJ DL TO FLORIDA two years ago and I am operating under a FLORIDA DL; should NJ DUI be on my NJ or FL DL?
I recently received a DUI in NJ. I had 3 previous DUI's in NJ. I am a Florida resident with a Florida driver license. I use to reside in NJ and surrendered my NJ DRIVERS LICENSE to FLORIDA two years ago. NJ is saying my NJ LICENCE was ACTIVE at time of DUI even though I surrendred it to Florida and have a current Florida DL. NJ is charging me with a THIRD DUI on my NJ DL that has a 6 month MANDATORY JAIL sentence attached to a third DUI in NJ. I previously received my DUI's in NJ in 1994, 1996 and 2001. My argument is being a surrendered my NJ DL to FLORIDA two years ago and have been living and working in Florida the last two years; NJ should be charging me with a FIRST DUI on my FLORIDA DL and report it to FLORIDA. As far as my NJ DL being ACTIVE at time of incident; that is not my fault as I physically surrendered my NJ DL to FLORIDA two years ago when I moved to Florida and registered my car in Florida.
You do not get to wash away your prior offenses by getting a Florida license. NJ and Florida are signatories to the...

Where does the police report future DWI checkpoints and can I refuse to take a soberity test?
I started working at night, and I am afraid about DWI checkpoints. My concern is that my eyes are really red and dry all the time, people always joke if I have smoke something and on the top of it I have an issue with my back that to perform some tests will make me failed. I was in a car accident and I have severe lower back and numbness in my legs, I also have a very heavy accent when I talk English. I am afriad that if I get stop a cop looking at my eyes and hearing me talk may suspect that i am drunk or high and then if he ask me to step out and do some physiscal tests may fail. How can I protect myself? Should I get a notice from the doctor showing my conditions I can get it from the eye doc and my orthopedic. Is there a way to know exactly where and when those checkpoints will be done?

Can the NJ DUI surcharge for DUI ($1000/year for 3 years) be paid monthly?

Directly from the states website: You are encouraged to make payment in full. If you are unable to do so, you can...
What penalties can I expect for an open container in public?
This was in Rockaway, although court is in Dover. This was not an open container in a car, but in public. Great error of judgment. What can I expect in court? This is my first offense, aside from speeding tickets. Also, what would be the consequences of FTA, aside from a warrant for arrest, which is to be expected? A friend told me I would be looking at anywhere from 30 to 120 days for FTA and had better show up or have it postponed if I can't make it to the appointed date. That sounds like a lot to me. It's the only thing that's made me nervous. I have no experience with this kind of thing. It is my first mandatory court appearance. Thank you.
The penalty for a first offense is $200. The statute NJSA 39:4-51b. If there is a mandatory Court appearance, you need...
