“The Tormey Law Firm knows how to fight DWI charges and drug charges in Bergen County and everywhere else in NJ.”

Paramus New Jersey DWI LawyersTravis Tormey and Christopher Perry, with the Tormey Law Firm LLC, recently helped a client beat charges for driving while intoxicated (DWI) and simple possession of marijuana under 50 grams in Long Hill Township, NJ. Since DWI is classified as a traffic offense and marijuana possession is considered a disorderly persons offense, the case was dealt with in the Long Hill Township Municipal Court, not the Morris County Superior Court in Morristown, New Jersey.

If the client was convicted on the first offense DWI charges, he would be in store for severe penalties, including suspension of his driver’s license for one year, compulsory attendance at alcohol education classes held at the DMV, a significant fine and court costs of $800, and up to 30 days in jail. Beyond that, a conviction on the marijuana possession charge could have resulted in additional penalties, including a criminal conviction on the client’s permanent record, a $1,000 fine, an additional suspension of the client’s license for a period of two years, and a sentence of six months in jail.

Mr. Tormey and Mr. Perry immediately got to work reviewing the evidence and discovered that the client registered a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .06 percent, which is below the New Jersey legal limit of .08 percent. Moreover, the police reports contained no evidence to suggest that the client was under the influence of marijuana when Long Hill Township police pulled him over on the roadway. Although police took a urine sample that later came back positive for marijuana, this was not conclusive proof that our client was under the influence of marijuana while driving because pot typically stays in a person’s bloodstream for approximately 30 days after initially being ingested.

Mr. Tormey and Mr. Perry also cast significant doubt on the marijuana possession charge because the State lacked sufficient evidence. Although law enforcement reportedly found flakes of marijuana on the client, there was not enough evidence to be tested by the NJ police lab. As a result, the prosecution could not prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the client actually possessed marijuana.

Based on these evidential issues, Mr. Tormey and Mr. Perry were able to get the charges against the client thrown out. This was an extremely positive outcome for our client and a major victory for the Tormey Law Firm.
