There is no way to get your license back early for a DWI in NJ. However, if you feel that you have a claim for post-...
After a DUI, can I be forced to pay for weekly IDRC alcohol tests for 16 weeks if I am not a regular drinker?
I made a very big mistake in deciding to drive after having had too much to drink. No accident, no property damage. I was stopped and convicted of dui. I paid my court costs, I lost my license, I pay a monthly surcharge, I went to the 48 hour IDRC program. I also went for evaluation as directed by IDRC. Because alcohol is not even a minor part of my life, I know I have no addiction. I was told I could have an "extended evaluation" where I would be called at random four times. If I tested positive for alcohol at all, I would have to do the 16 weeks of counseling at my own expense. Not a problem. Then I was told they weren't going to do this. Though I didn't need counseling, I would have to be tested once a week for 16 weeks again, at my own expense. Is this legal? Or a money scam?

DUI's in NJ are not considered misdemeanors, but what will the state of California classify them as?

Will public defender be likely to help reduce my charges of possible repeat driving while suspended (not DUI-related) after mva?
I was driving a friends car (with my toddler in the back) going speed limit of 25mph, when I was hit at an intersection by an elderly person, who says they thought I was going to stop for the pedestrian at the side of the road, so she continued through her stop sign. Both myself and other driver went to the hospital, I believe we both had minor injuries. I later found out the officer ran my license to find it suspended, which I had dealt with a couple times a few years ago before and around the time of storm Sandy, and I believe my lawyer got those charges lowered/dismissed. Apparently I missed some court payments, which I didn't see the notices for due to the confusion of relocating after sandy. I realize I dropped the ball on this, but will being an employed mom help avoid jail time?
Yes a public defender should be able to help you. Obviously its better to have your own private lawyer but if you...
