How To Beat A NJ DWI Charge Video Series
“For an Alcotest reading (breath test reading) in New Jersey DWI cases to be admissible in court, the police officer must have watched the defendant for a minimum of 20 minutes before placing them on the breath machine. One potential defense is to review the times on the police report, Alcotest report, videos, and CAD report to show that the 20 minute observation period wasn’t properly followed.”
“Challenging the CAD Report”
Based on the CAD report we can determine when you were first checked into the station and when the initial sample breath occurs. If it is not in fact 20 minutes, we can use this in court to motion the case be dismissed or reduced. There are also times on the videos, police reports, and Alcohol Influence Report (AIR) to compare with the CAD and, if the times don’t match up, it’s a great way for us to get your breath reading suppressed. Without a breath test reading that it over the legal limit of .08% BAC, it is must more difficult for the State to prove their case against you beyond a reasonable doubt.
