There are several ways to beat a NJ DUI. Many of these defenses involve the police officer or State Trooper who arrested you to have made some kind of mistake. A small mistake made by the officer can be the difference in keeping your license and losing it. Some common mistakes made by arresting and processing officers in DWI arrests include not observing the suspect for 20 minutes prior to the breath testing and forgetting to change the mouthpiece between the two (or more) breath tests.
Other defenses to a DWI charge are that there was no probable cause to arrest and conduct breath testing, that the Alcotest machine was not functioning properly, or that the officer who conducted the breath testing was not properly certified to do so. Other defenses exist depending on the facts of your case. A good defense attorney will force the police to turn over all evidence they have. If they fail to do so, this in itself can be grounds to get the case dismissed. Call now for a free DWI consultation.
