New Jersey Intoxicated Driver Program for DUI convictions

Any time a person is convicted of DUI, New Jersey law requires that the individual complete an Intoxicated Driver Program at an Intoxicated Driving Resource Center. Those who are convicted and need addictions treatment but are unable to afford it may be eligible for funding from the Driving Under the Influence Initiative.

Questions growing about CTE and domestic violence

In our last post, we highlighted the importance of having experienced legal counsel in time where a person is accused of domestic violence. With the spotlight still on the domestic violence issue in the NFL, we would be remiss if we did not mention a telling article produced by NBCNews.com.

New Jersey penalties for driving under the influence of alcohol

The offense of driving under the influence of alcohol carries grave consequences that could affect a driver's life in a considerable and enduring way. Upon conviction, even first-time offenders will lose their driving privileges for up to one year if their blood alcohol content level registered at .10 percent or higher. The court may also require offenders to install an ignition interlock device in their vehicles for up to one year after license restoration.

Vikings' Peterson indicted by grand jury for child abuse

Just when you thought the National Football League’s public image couldn’t get worse, another star player was charged with domestic abuse. Adrian Peterson, running back for the Minnesota Vikings, was indicted by a grand jury in Montgomery County, Texas of reckless or negligent injury to a child. The indictment stems from Peterson’s alleged actions in which he disciplined his 4-year-old son by beating him with a “switch,” a small tree branch stripped of its leaves.

New Jersey auto accident injures cyclist

A Sep. 9 accident that injured a bicyclist in Mahwah may have involved drunk driving. The incident occurred around 5 p.m. on North Railroad Avenue near its intersection with Ramapo Valley Road. According to reports, a 1990 Dodge Ram pickup truck driven by a 64-year-old Mahwah man turned sharply left onto North Railroad Avenue and reportedly collided with a bicycle operated by a 62-year-old New York man.

What is the difference between a first and second DWI?

In New Jersey, driving with a blood alcohol concentration level of .08 percent or higher is illegal. Drivers who do so are considered legally drunk and may face significant penalties if convicted. Moreover, drivers who have consumed alcohol sufficient enough to effectively impair their ability to operate a motor vehicle may be charged with driving while intoxicated, irrespective of their BAC level.

Your breath test results may be inaccurate

It may be conjecture, it may be urban legend, but those who are accused of drunk driving (even though they may feel fine) may believe that the machines used to measure their blood alcohol level may be flawed. It certainly is not unheard of. As there are stories from throughout the country about law enforcement agencies inaccurately measuring BACs.
