DWI Charges Dismissed in Lodi, New Jersey
Fight a DWI Charge in Lodi NJ with Travis Tormey
Have you been arrested and charged with a DWI in Lodi NJ? We can help.
The DWI defense team at our firm recently defended a client against DWI charges in Lodi, New Jersey with great success.
Our client had been accused of driving while intoxicated (DWI) in Lodi NJ. Since the client did not have any prior convictions for drunk driving, he was charged with a first offense DWI. Although the penalties are more severe for a second offense DWI or a third offense DWI, our client was still looking at significant penalties, including a potential jail sentence of 30 days, suspension of his driver’s license for 1 year, an $800 fine, and up to 48 hours of mandatory alcohol education classes at the Intoxicated Driver Resource Center (IDRC).
Moreover, the prosecutor could have sought maximum penalties against our client because the case involved a DWI accident. A DWI accident is an aggravating factor used by judges when determining sentences in drunk driving cases.
On the bright side, Travis J. Tormey and his team of DWI defense lawyers immediately got to work defending the client. We showed that our client’s blood alcohol concentration (BAC) was actually below the legal limit of .08 percent at the time of the accident. Additionally, we argued that the evidence against our client was weak because the state failed to use a drug recognition expert (DRE) to evaluate our client after his arrest. Beyond that, we argued that the prosecution could not prove that our client was driving under the influence of drugs because the state had failed to get a urine sample from our client after his arrest.
