N.J.S.A. 39:4-50 Springfield, New Jersey

Driving While Intoxicated or Driving Under the Influence charges are prosecuted under N.J.S.A. 39:4-50. Even though DWIs are statutorily defined as a “traffic violation” under Title 39, the penalties are more in-line with criminal charges. Because DWI cases may result in such severe penalties, courts have required the Municipal Prosecutor prove certain necessary elements before someone can be found guilty. These “proofs” include: (1) Operation of a Motor Vehicle and 2) Intoxication. While these two elements seem straightforward, proving them can rely and multiple other factors and elements that must be analyzed on a case-by-case basis. In the past, our firm has had success in suppressing these pieces of evidence based on procedural defects and evidentiary issues.

What are the Penalties For a DWI in Springfield?

The penalties will vary depend upon various factors. These include (1) whether or not a Breathalyzer/Alcotest was used, (2) what the results of that test were, (3) whether you have any prior convictions for Driving While Intoxicated, (4) whether an accident was involved and (5) whether or not the incident occurred within a school zone. For our purposes, I will lay out the penalties for the most common DWI charge, which is a first offense DWI:

When Your Alcotest reading is between .08 and .10 or it is an “Observation Case”

When Your Alcotest Reading is above .10
