2nd Offense DWI BAC 0.17% Dismissed – No Loss of License

index-imgOur attorneys recently defended a client charged with a second offense DWI in Monmouth County. He had been pulled over for driving erratically and was subsequently given standardized field sobriety tests after the police became suspicious of drunk driving. According to the police report, the defendant was so intoxicated that he could not successfully complete the sobriety tests. He was subsequently arrested and brought back to the station where he blew over twice the legal limit.

Based on the facts, our client was facing a mandatory 2 year loss of his driver’s license and the ignition interlock for 3 years. Moreover, our client was adamant that he couldn’t lose his license because he would lose his job. Our New Jersey DWI lawyers vigorously fought for our client’s defense for nearly 20 months which included filing multiple motions to dismiss the case. Finally, after months of litigation, we were able to successfully argue that the Judge dismiss our client’s charges based on a speedy trial motion that our office had filed. Therefore, he was able to walk out of the courtroom without a single day loss of license or paying any fines or costs to the court.
