Is there any possibility to downgrade a first driving while suspended for DUI on a first DUI, or a way to beat the charge?
Got caught driving on a dui related suspension in evesham twp on 05/10/2016. This is my 39-3-40 on the dui, and it is my first ever dui. I pleaded guilty to the DUI in Gloucester county superior court judge allen-jackson on 02/01/2016. I believe I was stopped because of the automatic license plate reader (ALPR) technology as this municipality has a notorious reputation of using this technology and for being tough. When informed I was being stopped because I was coming up as suspended, I pleaded with the officer, and was honest with why I was suspended and said I only go to and from work. He gave me a summons of 39-3-40 and 39-4-81 because he claimed I ran a red light. I have court in about two weeks in evesham twp municipal court. I have read some other avvo posts about similar situations, but I never read a case where an attorney was able to possibly negotiate a downgrade to say 39-3-10 unlicensed driver. Is this possible at all? so far from what I've read, all attorneys seem to advise is to recommend using an attorney and the harsh penalties associated with being convicted of driving while being a dui suspended driver.
I am a little confused. first off, do not discuss your case on the internet in such detail. second, are you concerned...
Would a 30+ year old dui and refusal (1980s) in NJ, be used the enhance a 2010 dui and refusal?
I was nabbed in 2010 in NJ. Received a dui. Was January . A few months later , in NJ, I was sitting in my car, keys in the glove box, drinking. A supposed passers-by notified the police ( I have no reason why) , and they (4 cars ) showed up. I refused all their calisthenics. Was taken to station, tried blowing twice, I could not , I guess get a good reading because the Sgt screamed, put him down as a refusal. Long story short, they couldn't get me for dui (because I wasn't driving ), was convicted of refusal. Now, I have a refusal from 1985, and a dui from 1984, both in NJ. In january 2010 received the new dui in NJ. April 2010 received above mentioned refusal. At the time, my attorney said the 2 1980ish convicons would not count, since they were over 10 years old . They did. 14 susp
1980s is not 30 years before 2010. If they only asked you to blow twice, perhaps a lawyer could help you and I always...
DUI-D, In IDRC program, am I going to be referred for assessment?
I got a DUI for there being drugs in my system even though my BAC was .06. This occurred while I was on probation; as such, I have since passed several drug tests. Additionally, I recently took a DSM 5 Point Diagnostic that also involved a drug test that determined I do not require further treatment. My fear is that because on my scantron, I answered honestly saying that I had attended NA meetings, I will be further referred. I told the instructor straight up that it was back in high school (now 23) and my test will confirm that though I admitted to hard drug use, I haven't in over a year. My biggest concern is that I will be referred by default, fail for marijuana as a result, and be screwed. Any insight would be helpful.
That is up to the IDRC counsellors.
Will this show up on my background?
I am being charged for theft. I wasn't processed at a precinct and they do not have my finger prints shots or anything. I've yet to be convicted and I am awaiting the date for trail. Because I have not gone to the precinct (they let me off the hook and I went that home that night without any police visit of any sort at the site or at home). I've just been extended a job offer and they are going to do a back ground check.. Will this show up? What if i get this done and settled before court appearance? I desperately need this job and it's a good job. I'm being convicted of theft but I probably will be recieving pti or a slap on the wrists and a fine, it's my first offense.
More information is needed to answer this question. You use the term "PTI". This is a Superior Court program available...
