No drugs or alcohol in my system I was charged with 4 counts including dui and reckless with no law enforcement present. It was seen by civilians all firmly concluding I was 100% in the right. An hour after the incident speaking to a dozen police and medical personelle left unsupervised over 30 minutes a cop decides he had probable cause since I had my head down and a dry mouth. The only reason they conclude charging after passing 3 breath tests their DRE decided my pupils were not dilating properly after 6 checks. I had prescription medication with me that they felt impaired my driving. I gave a urine sample but how could they conclude that it was taken before or after the accident regardless of the fact that I had not taken any that day?
All facts need to be reviewed in this case to provide an accurate answer. You should definitely hire counsel for this...
I was driving with my friends and they had a DUI checkpoint. Officer ask me for DL, INS, and REG, and I ask them why I been stop what is the problable cause. Officer got mad took me out of the car and start searching me even when I told them that I don't consent any searches. They told me that I going to be arrested. They make me do the breathalyzer test came to " 0 ". They still lock me and charge me with 2C:29-1B, 39:8-1, 39:3-29A, 39:3-29B, 39:6B-2. I do have driving licenses, registration, insurance, and the car is inspected. When the searched me they took my Driving lincese and in all the tickets appear my driving lincese if they charge with no DL why they gave a ticket for not DL
Very good chances. Retain an attorney immediately.
I am looking to buy a breatlizar from bactrack S 80 that is approved by DOT/NHTSA. However, my friend told me to buy another unit that can store data which are more expensive. Or maybe to video type when the test is taken. My question is can data stored by these devices be used as evidence to fight a DWI charge? How about if she videotype while take the breath sample? it is a christmas gift for a young person and I want to make sure that I buy the correct unit. Of course you should not drive when you drink but I think this type of devices are a must and very helpful. Pls advice. Thanks
There is no way having that device will help someone defend themselves against a DWI charge. I can envision scenarios...

'i was recently charged with a dui but when the cops found me i was pulled over sitting in a car in an empty lot. I had passed out head down on the steering wheel and was sitting in the driver's seat but I was not driving. What happened was I was at a man's house that i did not know at all. In fact I had just met him face to face that night although we had talked many times by text phone and dating site. He fixed me two drinks but by the second I started not to feel good so I chose to leave. I do remember leaving the guy's house but cannot tell you how I ended up parked in the empty lot. what I do kno though is that this man could have raped me if i had stayed
One of the elements that the prosecutor will need to prove is that you intended to operate the vehicle. You may have a...
Was arrested in feb. 2012 in nj, for 2 bags of heroin. Initially my court date was for may 3 at county court, got a letter in mail stating charges were lowered at case moved to municipal court instead. Never got a letter for a new court date and as of today (may, 3 2012) there is no scheduled court date for me at county or municipal court. Is this good news? Charges possibly dropped? Or is this standard procedure?
This is rather standard procedure in Union County. Your case, a felony under 2C:35-10 (a), was sent to the county...
I was out on bail and traveling across the state time and time again for a 2 year long trial during which time I completed an outpatient mental health program and went to a counselor and psychiatrist. Finally a plea bargain was reached for a felony DWI charge that resulted in among other things 'up to' 5 years of felony probation. I was told at the time that after half was done I would get a chance every 6 months at being released early. I have attended all probation meetings and all counseling and psychiatric meetings and have not reoffended as well as obeyed all restrictions. Probation tells me that its up to the courts now and the court and lawyer I had are not very reachable and left it as being in probation's hands..Is there anyway to avoid 7 years of my life being lived like this
It would seem from your question that your charges are from a state other than NJ. Is this correct? If so, you would...
