Arrested for DWI in Howell

Howell ranks number two in size in Monmouth County and is almost always in the top ten percent for DWI violations. This was certainly the case over the period from July 2014 through June 2015 when members of the Howell Township Police Department wrote a summons or ticket 203 times for DWI. All of those cases were handled in Howell Municipal Court, 300 Old Tavern Road, Howell, NJ 07731. Judge Susan Schroeder Clark, J.M.C., presides over all cases in this court and is solely responsible for all decisions as there is no right or ability to have a jury trial in a DUI case. Sessions are conducted by Judge Clark every Wednesday at both 1:30 p.m. and 5:00 p.m., and on the first and third Tuesday of the month at 5:00 p.m. All appearances in driving under the influence cases are mandatory with the exception of initial arraignments which can typically be waived if you retain an attorney. The Court Administrator, Rosemary O’Donnell, C.M.C.A., and the rest of her court staff may be reached at (732) 938-4848 ext 4106. We cannot stress the importance of proper representation enough if you faced with a DWI offense in Howell. There honestly is not anything that can be done without an effective defense other than impose the mandatory license revocation, fines, surcharges, ignition interlock and other penalties. This is not the type of case to be handled on your own.
