If you are charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI), the prosecution must prove that you were operating a vehicle at a time when your driving capacity was impaired by an illegal amount of drugs or alcohol in your system. In turn, as the defendant, your job is to refute this argument in any way possible. This is because a strong defense strategy may help to reduce the penalties placed against you, or possibly even eliminate them. Follow along to find out whether you can get a DWI charge dismissed entirely and how a proficient Gloucester County DWI lawyer at The Vigilante Law Firm, P.C. can fight on your behalf.

Is it possible to get a DWI charge dismissed entirely?

Notably, our firm has a history of defending clients and ultimately getting their DWI charges dismissed entirely. You and your appointed Gloucester County DWI lawyer may make this a reality for you, as well, by making any of the following claims:

  • You may argue that the arresting officer misused a breathalyzer.
  • You may argue that the arresting officer deviated from standard legal procedures during your arrest.
  • You may argue that the arresting officer deviated from standard field sobriety tests at the time of your stop.

It is important that if you make any of the aforementioned claims, they are grounded on facts. That is, you must present a sufficient amount of evidence to prove such circumstances as true. Rest assured, your talented lawyer can help you in doing so.

Otherwise, you and your lawyer may be able to negotiate a plea bargain with the prosecution. With this, you will have to plead guilty; but this is in exchange for more serious charges being dismissed.

What if I cannot fight the accusations placed against me?

By no means should you take the DWI accusation placed against you, and your subsequent criminal proceedings, lightly. This is because, in the chance that you are charged as guilty, you may be facing any or all of the following serious penalties:

  • You may be ordered to pay a given amount of fines.
  • You may be ordered to serve a given amount of time in jail.
  • You may be ordered to attend New Jersey’s Intoxicated Driver Resource Center for a given amount of time.
  • Your driver’s license may be suspended for a given amount of time.
  • You may be ordered to pay a surcharge on your driver’s license for a given amount of time and money.
  • You may be ordered to install an ignition interlock device in your vehicle for a given amount of time and money.

Of note, the specifics of the aforementioned penalties are dependent on it being your first, second, or third offense. But overall, with the complex legal proceedings ahead, you should not go through it alone. Rather, you should have one of the experienced New Jersey criminal defense lawyers from The Vigilante Law Firm, P.C. stand by your side throughout. Contact our firm today.
