My question is can this be at least brought down to tier 1?
Hello, I was charged with a DWI this past Dec after leaving a holiday party in Roselle, NJ. The police officer was waiting outside the bar and I didn't notice he was there so I decided to move my car to my jobs parking lot that is less than a mile away from the bar so it would get towed. The officer followed me around and saw me slightly touching the yellow line which gave him probable cause to stop me. Long story short I did the sobriety test but I obviously failed, therefore, I was arrested. My BAC was .20 , which I know is very high , however, that day I took some advil pill so I don't know if this affected my blood? I usually don't drink and I just got carried away because I wanted to be merry with my co-workers and boss. Is it possible to work something out with the persecutor in order to be consider a tier 1? I just want my license to be suspended for 90 days. PS. this is my first offense and no one got hurt. I am very scared because I'm a recent college graduate who moved to the states alone and I'm in the process of bringing my mom here. I don't know if this could affect her process in any was
Absolutely. Is not uncommon for a tier 1 to be dropped down to a tier 2. You higher than average reading will...

NJ out of state DUI
I recently received a first time DUI out of state in WV. In WV a DUI is also considered a criminal offense. I will be entering a deferral program through that state of WV which will require a conditional guilty plea. Upon completing this program the DUI will be dismissed. One year later I will be eligible to have the charge expunged. I plan on applying to a nursing program in about two semesters which requires a criminal back ground check (NJ). With this said, will this charge show up on my NJ criminal background/prevent me from entering into the nursing program? Thanks!
You were prudent to reach out for help. You may have to disclose the arrest. Read the application carefully and...
I was arrested for DWI but the charges were dropped. Do I need to put on applications for jobs that I was arrested still?
They said I failed the field sobriety test but when I got to the station and they gave me a breathalyzer I blew a .00. The charges were dropped in court. I am actually trying to become a police officer and I know you need to be honest with things but is something that they cant find out on a background check? Is it like I was never even arrested and there is no record of the arrest? Thanks
DWI is not criminal in NJ and therefore is not on a CCH. It is on your abstract but only if you plead guilty or are...
Will I be able to get my DUI reduced?
I went to the bar for the first time in 8 months. I left and got lost and realized I was too Intoxicated to be driving so I pulled off the road and parked. I tried calling for someone to come get me, no one answered so I fell asleep in my car. Next thing I know I'm outside my car at 4am with flashing lights behind me and two officers asking me to step on the white line. Okay so facts: I left the bar at 1am. I unfortunately did not pull far enough off the road, my car was slightly sticking out. I was asleep from 1:30 to 4 am. Bac was a .17 . I went to court today and pled not guilty... Will I be able to bargain outta this?

How do I fight a DUI case against me and also get my license back?
I went out to party in NYC had a few extra drinks, decided to drive the friend (he had a few drinks as well) back home in NJ. I got stopped by a traffic police for turning right at a red light (illegal in NYC; legal in NJ, if "no turn on red" sign is not posted). Officer performed a breath analyzer test and reported the alcohol level was 0.11 (legal limit is 0.08). I was taken to the station for further tests and I failed the breath analyzer test but passed the coordination test. I kept a clean driving record since I started driving at age 17. This is my first time offence. The judge suspended my license in NY and I am going to presume that it is suspended in NJ as well. The date of the case has been set for 3/15, I have been asked to take the alcohol abuse screening scheduled for thursday 2/2. I would like to know if I have a fighting chance of staying out of prison and also any chance I can get my license back also if I can reduce these charges to something a bit closer to a violation taking into consideration my driving record also my work / academic standing?.
Get local DUI/DWI counsel involved before moving further to best liit the negative fallout from that night.
