Best Issues for Defeating a Driving While Intoxicated Charge in Sayreville NJ
Although the penalties for committing a DWI offense are significant in NJ, there are many issues that can help prevent a conviction. The following are a few that can be raised in your Sayreville Municipal Court DWI case:
- The Police Officer Lacked Reasonable Suspicion for the Traffic Stop. Unless the encounter with police was the result of a valid road block, they must possess reasonable suspicion to believe a motor vehicle violation occurred. Our decades of experience, many years of which as prosecutors, allows us to identify when there is an opening to contest the stop.
- You Passed the Field Sobriety Tests. Police must possess probable cause to believe that the accused was operating a vehicle in violation of the NJ DWI Law. To fulfil this requirement, police customarily administer field sobriety tests. However, many officers fail to comply with the standards for administering and scoring these tests. This is where a defense attorney certified, perhaps even one who is an instructor in field sobriety testing, can prove invaluable. Our firm possesses this level of training and expertise.
- The Alcotest Operator Failed to Comply With Protocol. There are guidelines that must be followed by police in order for blood alcohol content (“BAC”) reflected in your Alcotest breath test results readings to be admissible in court. We know how to identify when a guideline has been violated, ignored or otherwise not adhered to.
- The Alcotest Malfunctioned and/or Failed. Standard discovery can reveal an issue with the breath test that prevents the prosecutor from utilizing BAC readings in a case. There is also “digital discovery”, which basically refers to the audit information generated with respect to a particular breath test machine. An attorney must request this information and, when it is received, either hire an expert to analyze it or have the know how to do so on their own. The lawyers at our firm are among the limited number in the state that have the ability to review the digital download and figure out what it reveals.
- The Prosecutor Fails to Provide Discovery. One of the keys to success in defending NJ DWI charges is relentless pursuit of any and all documents and other discovery. Pressing for discovery often involves filing motions and taking other steps to force the police and/or prosecutors to produce an item(s). When they fail to provide the information or do so in an untimely fashion, we are ready to seek dismissal or other relief.
