New Jersey has recently relaxed its Draconian sentencing laws with respect to DWI. If you are charged with DWI you should know the new penalties and consequences. If your reading is above the legal limit, it is possible the Alcotest machine was not working properly or perhaps law enforcement did not follow proper protocol in administering the test. Often times this reading can be thrown out before a trial. Also certain Field Sobriety Tests have been deemed unreliable for certain individuals. It has been said a DWI conviction can set someone back tens of thousands of dollars. Don’t fight a DWI alone. Hire an experienced DWI attorney to fight the battle with you.
