  • Police failing to solve crime under Mayor Wilda Diaz

    Wednesday Jun 1 | via Clarks Hometown News Patriot 

    Perth Amboy residents should demand that Mayor Wilda Diaz explain why city's police force has failed to solve more than 85 percent of the crimes reported in the city last year. Even though there have been fewer crimes in the city, Perth Amboy police failed to arrest the vast majority of offenders and many of the incidents reported have been more dangerous than those in past years.

I got a DUI what should I do/expect?
I got a DUI in New Jersey at 7am on Sunday and have court next week. What should I do based on the following facts... I was in New Jersey for a Bachelor Party Saturday Night. Slept at hotel. I felt sober enough to leave early in the morning to try and beat traffic to get home for Mothers Day in New York. Got pulled over for speeding (118 on a 65). Officer thought I was drunk and had me do several tests which I passed. Then arrested me and brought me to the station for breathalyzer. I blew a .09. The limit is .08. Now I have court next Thursday. I only have $1500 saved up. I doubt that's enough for a decent lawyer. What should I do? Maybe try a pro bono lawyer? What should I expect? I really don't want my license to get suspended and I don't want my insurance to go up... any help/advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Anthony
You got pulled over going 118 mph with a B.A.C. over the legal limit. You run a real risk of doing jail time. Time to...
I got DUI ticket. please help.
Yesterday late afternoon I arrested for two hours in cliffside park police dept. I drunk 4 cans of beer and sake with family in house.

After then in police office I did breath test. I didn't refuse breath test. but they didn't get result so I did 3 times. and then they just released me with 5 tickets. 1. Operating under influence of liquor or drugs. 2. Refusal to submit to chemical test, penalties. 3. Reckless driving. 4. DWI on school property or within 1000 ft of school. 5.

When does DUI related suspension end?
I received a 7 month loss of license for a first DUI the end of January. I also got caught driving while being suspended for a first DUI 39:3-40(f)(2). Initially if I didn't get caught the DWS ticket, I was eligible to be restored for the DUI the beginning of September 2016. My question is when the DUI related suspension expires the end of September, what would happen if I got caught driving again while being suspended? Would it only be a "plain vanilla" DWS 39:3-40, or would I be subject to indictment under 2C:40-26?
Don't get caught driving while suspended because you must be smart enough not to drive if your suspended. Even if your...
Can a recent DUI be vacated by filling a PCR application to prevent enhanced consequences of Driving While Suspended for DUI?
I originally plead guilty to my first ever DUI on 02/01/2016. I received a 7 month loss of license because It was a drug related dui. Soon afterwards about the first week of April 16' motor vehicle sent me a letter stating they were taking action against me. They said in addition to the 7 month loss of license, they were administratively suspending me an additional 6 months for driving while suspended. They said this was because on 05/12/2015 Haddon Heights Court suspended my license due to non-compliance with a time payment order. Then on 05/13/2015, the very next day, I got a DUI in Washington Twp. When I got the DUI I was not ticketed for DWS, and neither myself nor the cop knew I was a suspended driver. I want to know if I can file a PCR to possibly vacate and even fight the DUI because in addition to the what id call unfair admin suspension, I got caught in evesham twp. in the beginning of the month driving on a DUI related suspension that is currently pending. Could vacating the DUI due to the adverse admin action motor vehicle took against me possibly help with the DWS I received in evesham twp.? The main reason I didn't fight it was bc it was linked to an indictable.
The adverse action taken by the MVC is not in my view a basis for filing a PCR on the DWI. The appropriate action...
Will a DUI drug related affect my app to physical therapy school or licensing?
I received a DUI 5 years ago in NJ where it's considered a traffic violation. The incident involved marijuana. I was convicted. I'm planning on getting my arrest record expunge. If asked I will disclosed the information but i'm looking to apply to physical therapy school in 2018. I'm going to talk to a NJ lawyer about this, I just wanted to ask on here first.
