Does a Laurick motion lower suspension time or only jail time?
I plead guilty to a dwi in 1989. I was charged with a dwi in 2008 and refusal in 2013, but was granted a Laurick motion for the 1989 conviction. I did not have to go to jail thank god, but am trying to put my life back in order, not easy to do without a license. Is there a way to have the Laurick order apply to my suspension (2 years vs 10 years)?
Yes a Laurick Motion relates to the jail portion of the sentence not to the loss of license.
Hi... In New Jersey if you are convicted of a 2nd DUI, is there a mandatory jail term or is that up to the judge? Thanks, Mac
I had some wine and drove to work at 10 am. While parking I dented the car next to me. I was arrested on DUI.
A second DWI carries a mandatory 2 - 90 days in jail, though often two days at the IDRC are substituted for the two...
I got a dui in NJ. I had to get an interlock device during my suspension. Do i have to get it again after i get my license back?
The judge only told me i had to have the interlock on my car for six months but did not mention anything about having to get it again after my license is reinstated.
Unfortunately Yes. The N J law was written thinking conditional licenses would be available. That law never was enacted....
I would like to know what my possible charges could be for a DWI, refusal to take a breathalyzer, and a careless driving ticket?
I received a DWI ticket, a refusal to take a breathalyzer ticket, and a careless driving ticket in the state of NJ recently. I was given a field sobriety test, which I failed, but I have read that they could be disregarded in court. There is currently no evidence that I was drinking and driving other than the above and that the cop received a complaint call. I currently work as a Teacher Aide and plan to do AmeriCorps in the state of Colorado in January for a year then get my master's in teaching, which will take two years (also in Colorado). I am very nervous that this will stay on my record and it could jeopardize my career path. I would like to know what my possible charges could be, and with my future plans, as long as I take the proper classes, if I can get a conditional license etc.
You are correct that the DWI charge can be beaten if the SFTS where not performed properly, the refusal is another...

Your question is a bit unclear. Have you already been convicted of a DUI or just charged with it? You should get an...
If the cops didn't request a BAC Level test after my accident, can they see the results of my Medical BAC Level test?
The doctor said he had to test my blood to treat me. My BAC was almost twice the legal limit and I'm afraid the cops are going to find out. Will they?
The police do have the right to find out the results of your blood test if they have a reasonable suspicion that you...
I am 21 years old. I was arrested in NJ for DWI. Blew a .10. I have a NY license.
Are you able to reduce charges in NJ? Will I be able to get a conditional permit for I work in NY. I work only 20 hours a week at minimum wage and cannot afford an attorney. Will I be able to get a point appointed attorney? I was given ticket for DWI, going 20 miles over the speed limit and careless driving. I appreciate your response. Thank you.
Apply to the court to appoint a PD. You will need an attorney to deal with this. If you lose you will have you NJ...
