New Jersey Felony DUI Attorneys Fight To Protect Your Rights And Prevent One Mistake From Derailing Your Entire Future
We’re Your Most Powerful Resource In The Face Of Tough Opposition
The state of New Jersey takes drunk driving offenses very seriously and imposes strict punishments for multiple convictions. Many other states have additional laws governing felony DUI charges. However, in New Jersey, DUI convictions are classified as traffic offenses as opposed to indictable criminal offenses. Despite this, there are still very real consequences if you have a prior history of DUI convictions. The team of DUI defense lawyers at Lomurro Law work hard to keep up with recent developments to ensure that you receive the latest and most accurate legal advice and representation.
Even Though DUI Offenses Do Not Lead To Felony Charges, Penalties Are Severe And Long-Term
While some states provide for enhanced penalties for felony DUI convictions, New Jersey’s DUI laws are similarly harsh despite only being classified as traffic offenses. A single DUI conviction may cause you to pay fines of up to $400, spend at least 48 hours at the Intoxicated Driver Resource Center (IDRC) and lose your driver’s license for up to one year. A second conviction leads to increased fines, the potential for additional jail time and a suspension of your driver’s license for two years. In addition, installation of an ignition interlock device is mandatory for second and subsequent offenses.
Additionally, there are enhanced penalties for DUI offenses that occur in a school zone on school property or within 1000 feet of such property. There are also significant penalties for underage persons convicted of DUI. Despite not classifying DUI convictions as criminal offenses, New Jersey laws still provide for serious penalties that may impact your personal and professional life long after your offense.
