You need an attorney regardless. Let him worry about the expert.
Why do I need a 16 week idrc course when my dui was 13 years ago and my blood alcohol content was.01?
I just recently started trying to get on track with my license and the counselor told me I have to do this 16 week course and it doesn't work around my schedule. I know people that got in a drunk driving accident and had beer in the cup holder and only do a 12 hour course..

Furthermore, although I'm not sure if it matters or how it works, this person was observed driving/pulled over/arrested outside of the township in which the police officer works. The border of that township is about 3 miles from where this person was stopped. Does he have legal jurisdiction to make a stop here?
Yes you can. When pulled over for a moving violation, where the police officer suspects that the driver may be...

? Since one of drug courts rules is to go to a twelve step program like NA or AA atleast in New Jersey and part of those programs Is finding and having a diety of some sort, is there an alternative program that is specifically based on a more secular guideline?
