Arrested for a DWI in Morris Township NJ? We can help. Depending on the circumstances of your case including you alleged level of intoxication and your number of prior offenses, you could be facing fines, license suspension, and jail time. In addition to that, there are significant motor vehicle surcharges and insurance surcharges associated with a drunk driving conviction. But there doesn’t have to be. Here is an example of a real DWI case we handled for a client in Morris Twp which was resolved in the Madison Municipal Court.
The Morris County DWI defense lawyers at our law firm represented a client who was facing a drunk driving charge, first offense, which occurred in Morris Township, NJ. These violations are heard in the Madison Municipal Court. Her reported breath test reading was .15% BAC, almost double the legal limit of .08%. With that reading, she was facing a driver’s license suspension of 7 months to 1 year, alcohol and drug classes at the DMV, a fine, up to 30 days in jail, and an ignition interlock blowing device on her vehicle for 6 months to 1 year when she gets her license back (because her reading is .15% or higher).
Can I challenge the breath test in my DWI case?
Mr. Tormey examined the state’s evidence and determined that there was an issue with the Alcotest documents and calibration records that were provided. Mr. Tormey is certified to operate the Alcotest 7110 breath testing device in NJ, just like the police officers who use the machine to test suspected drunk drivers. In this case, we sent the records to our DWI defense expert, a retired NJ state trooper, who rendered an expert report to the court challenging the reliability of the breath test result in this case. Based on this report, the breath reading was suppressed and the client avoided a 7 month to one year license suspension as well as the ignition interlock device on her motor vehicle. She lost her driving privileges for three months instead.
