New Jersey DWI Attorney Discusses a First Time DWI Charge
I am often asked as an experienced New Jersey DWI Attorney, what can happen if you are charged with a DWI for the first time. In the state of New Jersey, a DWI first offense is a traffic infraction. It’s not a crime, and as such, it is a serious traffic infraction that is handled in the Municipal Court, not in the Superior Court. There are a lot of potential sentences that can occur to you when you’re charged with a DWI. Obviously, there are fines that would be a financial obligation to the Court. You may have to install an ignition interlock device in your car, depending on your blood alcohol level. There’s also the potential of losing your license for as little as three months and as much as twelve months.
