It is not usually for over 400 driving while intoxicated and under the influence of drug charges to be filed in the town in a twelve month period.

There is no doubting the fact that most of the individuals arrested in Toms River for DWI had their encounter with police on major roadways like the Parkway, Route 9, Route 35, Route 37, Route 70, and Route 166.

First and foremost is the fact that there will be no plea bargaining of driving while intoxicated charge. There is a strict rule in the state prohibiting an amendment or dismissal of a violation under 39:4-50 absent there existing a flaw in the state’s case. This is why is it so crucial for you to hire the most knowledgeable and experienced DWI defense lawyer if you want to have success in Toms River Municipal Court. The second thing you must keep in mind is that a DUI offense is defensible. The police must follow proper protocol when it comes to administering a breath test, taking a blood or urine sample, or field sobriety tests. You probably would be shocked to know just how often they deviate from the accepted standard and either make up their own or just forget what is proper. Irrespective, an effective defense strategy will identify these faults and allow you to escape a conviction. This task is extremely important as the penalties for driving while intoxicated or while driving under the influence of drugs in Toms River are extreme. There is a mandatory driver’s license suspension, thousands of dollars in financial consequences, and you can even be sent to jail. At least two days of incarceration is mandatory for a second offense and the minimum period escalates to 180 days for a third offense. Hiring a skilled lawyer is imperative if you want to avoid ramifications such as these.
