The first step in defending against a DWI is to attend your arraignment and enter a plea of not-guilty. If you retain a defense attorney before your first arraignment, your appearance can be waived at this hearing.
Next, your attorney will demand a speedy trial and request all discovery in your case. Discovery simply means evidence. You have the right to have all evidence in your case turned over, as well as any information which may lead to exculpatory evidence under Brady v. Maryland and Rule 7:7-7. Your attorney should make sure to obtain all police reports, narratives, arrests reports, both the officer’s dash cam (MVR) and any in-station video which may exist.
There is also a battery of reports pertaining to the alcotest machine, including the Alcohol influence report (AIR). The police dispatch time log, known as the Computer Automated Dispatch Report (CAD) should also be requested, along with the Data Downloads from the breath testing machine. The Data Downloads are only downloaded every six months, which may delay your case.
