DWI attorney in Cinnaminson NJ
Being arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated or driving under the influence (both refer to the same thing) in Cinnaminson, then you are probably full of concern over what penalties you may be facing. New Jersey has implemented some of the country’s most severe penalties when it comes to drunk driving. Depending on the number of prior violations and the circumstances surrounding your offense, you could be facing up to ten (10) years in prison and six (6) months in the Burlington County Jail. If you are also charged with other violations like Refusal to Submit to a Breathalyzer, Reckless Driving, Leaving the Scene of an Accident, Eluding, Endangering the Welfare of a Child or Assault by Auto, then you can expect additional penalties and a criminal record. As you can see, it is imperative that you take your DWI or DUI charges seriously and consult with an experienced Cinnaminson DWI attorney about your pending case. For an immediate and complimentary consultation with a Burlington County DUI Lawyer today, please contact our office at (609) 850-8284.

Unlike other traffic and criminal charges, the Cinnaminson Municipal Prosecutor cannot offer a negotiated plea or downgrade of your DWI offense. According to Part VII, Guideline 4 of the Guidelines for Operation of Plea Agreements In the Municipal Courts of New Jersey, Prosecutors may not offer a plea agree for certain drug charges and DWI charges under N.J.S.A. 39:4-50. This means that simply showing up to the Cinnaminson Municipal Court on your court date will not get you a “better deal.” If you hope to reduce or avoid the mandatory license suspension that a first offense DWI carries, you must raise legitimate issues in the State’s case.
