Monmouth County Lawyer & DWI Defense

Freehold Township, NJ has a long history in the United States as a welcoming place for new residents of every ethnicity and background. With its small-town values, beautiful parks and recreation, great schools and proximity to commuting to big cities like New York City, Newark, Trenton, and Philadelphia, Freehold is a perfect community for raising a family.

Along with all the perks of living close to the Jersey Shore, new residents should avail themselves of access to the state’s laws. One area that impacts folks regardless of economic or social standing is a DWI. Some may not be aware that the state considers driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs a serious traffic violation, not a criminal matter.

Although the person charged with DWI in New Jersey may not have to fight the state in criminal charges, the civil penalties are expensive, time consuming, and burdensome. In addition to fines, fees, surcharges, and community service, serving prison time is still possible. This is why the attorney of the Law Offices of Anthony J. Vecchio, LLC fights zealously for the rights of residents of Freehold, NJ in DWI.

General facts about a Freehold DWI Charge

First, the police will ask for a roadside breath test on the Alcotest 7110. The breath test determines the blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level of drivers. The legal limit for BAC is below .08%. Although state lawmakers and courts approve of using the Alcotest 7110 to gather driver’s BAC levels, the testing method is far from foolproof. An experienced New Jersey DWI attorney can challenge the science, accuracy, and dependability of the Alcotest 7110.

The state uses a series of financial penalties –including fines, fees, and surcharges – in addition to other restrictions like community service hours, license suspensions, and even prison time to impose punishment for New Jersey DWI.

For instance, a first-time DWI charge with a BAC of greater than .08% but less than .10% involves:

  • Loss of license for 3 months;
  • Prison term of up to 30 days;
  • Intoxicated Driver Resource Center (IDRC) for 12-48 hours, plus paying a $230 IDRC fee;
  • A three-year period of paying $1,000/year surcharge;
  • $250–$400 fine;
  • $100 to a state drunk driving fund;
  • $100 to the Alcohol Education and Rehabilitation Fund; and,
  • $75 to Neighborhood Services Fund

The fines, surcharges, time in prison, and other penalties increase sharply for multiple DWI offenses. The penalties differ for DWI while in possession of narcotics, or underage drinking.

As a DWI attorney, the Law Offices of Anthony J. Vecchio, LLC is here to serve those accused of DWI in Freehold, NJ and throughout the state.
