Drunk Driving in Morristown Defeated

“I handle DWI cases regularly, all throughout NJ. I use several advance DWI defense strategies that can lead these cases to be dismissed, and thrown out of court entirely.”

In another recent case in Morristown Municipal Court, the firm represented a client charged with a first offense DWI with a .09% Blood Alcohol Content (BAC). Based on this reading, the client was facing a three-month driver’s license suspension as well as a DWI surcharge through the Department of Motor Vehicles of $1,000.00 a year for three (3) years.

After reviewing the discovery, Travis identified several issues with the State’s case. First, the probable cause for the stop was questionable. The defendant was stopped for failure to observe signal for allegedly running a red light on the green in the center of Morristown. However, when the firm investigated the scene of the alleged violation, it became clear that the signage and the “no turn on red” sign is on the left side of the street and there are no signs either above the light or on the right side of the road.

As a result, if you are in the right lane and there are cars in the left lane, it would be impossible to see the one sign that prohibits a right turn on red. Moreover, there was a twenty-minute observation issue as well as proof issues with the field sobriety tests that the defendant performed at the scene of the stop. Based on these proof issues, the State agreed to suppress the .09% BAC reading and dismiss the DWI charge in exchange for the defendant’s plea of guilty to a failure to observe signal ticket with a ninety (90) day driver’s license suspension. Our client was extremely satisfied with this result which allowed him to avoid a DWI charge on his record.
