Arrested for DWI Morris Twp. NJ? We can help
The Tormey Law Firm recently defended a client against DWI charges in Morris Township, NJ.
Amazingly, our client was charged under the New Jersey DWI statute despite the fact that she was not actually driving the vehicle; she was a passenger in a vehicle that her friend was driving.
Our client’s friend was driving in Morris Township when she was pulled over by a traffic officer. The officer then administered field sobriety tests, which the driver subsequently failed. This led to the driver being placed under arrest, taken to police headquarters, and charged with drunk driving.
However, this was not the end of the story for our client. Since the vehicle was register in our client’s name, she was charged with violating New Jersey DWI laws that prohibit a person from allowing an intoxicated individual to operate a motor vehicle.
These were very serious charges that carried significant penalties, including a sentence of up to 30 days in jail, suspension of our client’s driver’s license for a period of 3 months, and $3,000 in Motor Vehicle Commission surcharges over three years.
