Morris County NJ Intoxicated Driver Resource Center

Intoxicated Driver Resource Center (IDRC)

When you are charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI) in New Jersey, one of the consequences of being found guilty is having to attend an Intoxicated Driver Resource Center (IDRC). There are specific requirements for each level of DWI offense and there are a variety of IDRC locations throughout the state. Travis J. Tormey is an experienced drunk driving defense attorney who has been representing clients for years charged with alcohol-related offenses including refusal to submit to a breath testDWI in a school zone, and leaving the scene of an accident. He and the DUI defense team at The Tormey Law Firm regularly defend clients in courts throughout Morris County and New Jersey, including in Morristown, Parsippany, Mount Olive, Denville, and Madison.

Mr. Tormey is one of a few New Jersey attorneys who is a certified Alcotest 7110 operator, the breath-testing device used throughout the state to prosecute drunk driving cases. As a result, Mr. Tormey knows the components of the machine, how it works, and if there are any issues with the functioning of the breath testing device. This knowledge and expertise can be used to attack the reliability of the breath-test result in your case. Additionally, our DWI defense team is composed of a former New Jersey DWI prosecutor and a retired NJ State trooper who is certified not only on the breath test machine but also in the field sobriety tests. If you have been charged with driving under the influence in Morris County or elsewhere in New Jersey, contact our offices anytime for a free initial consultation at 866-949-9468.

NJ Intoxicated Driver Resource Center (IDRC)

If you have been convicted of a DWI in New Jersey, you must participate in a program at the Intoxicated Driving Resource Center (IDRC). For a first offense DWI, the court will sentence you to twelve (12) to forty-eight (48) hours in the IDRC. The program provides for mandatory alcohol and highway safety education courses. IDRC will also evaluate each offender for alcohol or drug problems and if they determine treatment is needed you will be referred to a mandatory additional sixteen (16) week minimum treatment program.

There are IDRC centers in each county in New Jersey for first and third time DWI offenders and three regional IDRC centers for second time DWI offenders. The IDRC keeps track of your compliance and will notify the court and DMV if you do not complete your required IDRC classes. This will result in your license being suspended indefinitely until you finally do the IDRC and the court can impose jail as punishment for non-compliance.

For a first offense DWI, typically you complete two (2) six-hour alcohol awareness classes over a weekend period. For a second offense DWI, you typically serve 48 hours straight (in lieu of the two (2) days jail that must be imposed on a second offense). For a third offense, ninety (90) days of the mandatory 180 day jail sentence can be served at an IDRC approved in-patient rehabilitation center.

Parsippany NJ Alcotest Certified DWI Defense Lawyers

In New Jersey, the state uses the Alcotest 7110 breath testing device to prosecute DWI cases which is manufactured by Draeger Safety. Travis J. Tormey attended a seminar in 2011 to obtain his Alcotest 7110 certification. The seminar was given to only about 20 lawyers in New Jersey and was conducted by the vice president of Draeger Safety. Mr. Tormey is now trained on the Alcotest 7110 MKIII-C Version NJ3.11′s analytical system, components, and peripherals, as well as how to operate the instrument and perform a New Jersey specific breath test sequence. As such, Mr. Tormey is licensed to operate the breath testing device used in all New Jersey DWI cases and can utilize this expertise to determine the admissibility of the breath test result in your case.

Note: The Tormey Law Firm also utilizes the services of a DWI expert, a retired New Jersey state trooper who is also a certified Alcotest operator. Additionally, he is certified in field sobriety testing, the tests used at the scene by law enforcement officers to determine if probable cause exists to arrest a driver for DWI.
