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?

Is it a good idea for me to take the stand in my defense,even though I have a prior drug conviction with the same co defendant?
I am a male,my co defendent borrowed my motorcycle,she was apart of an investigation for drugs,my bike was parked outside of my home,the police into their investigation eventually ended up towing my bike stating that they had a informant that says my co defendant went to get drugs on my bike,they brought a drug dog by my bike and said they got an alert,so they towed it and days later said they found drugs and issued warrants for myself and my codefendent,I don't know absolutely nothing about anything,so I can't say its hers or whether they planted it or not,but my pool attorney is advising me to take the stand and state that,even though I have a past conviction for drugs with this person...should I take the stand or not?...I don't think its a good idea personally
A decision to take the stand is a personal one but must be discussed with counsel. Hire or at least consult with an...
