Pennington NJ Traffic Ticket Attorney
In a case that received press several years ago, a lawyer from Pennington was driving his girlfriend in his BMW SUV. The two were having a dispute, and at one point, the woman fell from the car and onto the street. She later died from her injuries. The Pennington lawyer had been drinking and was charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI). While it was unclear whether there was foul play on the part of the lawyer in the woman’s accident, the one thing that was certain is that the lawyer was now facing a DWI charge. If you were recently charged with a traffic violation, from a minor moving violation to a DWI, you should be represented in court.

Let’s discuss the more common offenses that occur in the Pennington area.
Driving With A Suspended License. Driving while suspended is a very serious offense. A conviction for a first offense will result in a $500 fine and an added 6 months of license suspension. A second conviction will result in a mandatory jail sentence of 1 to 5 days, plus a $750 fine, and another 6 months without driving privileges. A third conviction results in a 10-day jail sentence and a $1,000 fine. What happens if you are involved in a car accident while driving with a suspended license? It is a 45-day jail term, even if the accident was not your fault.
Driving While Intoxicated (DWI). DWI is not considered a criminal offense in this State, which means that you do not have the right to a trial by jury for a DWI in New Jersey. That said, the punishment can still be significant. A conviction for a first offense results in a 1-year license suspension. A second conviction is a 2-year suspension, and a third conviction is a 10-year suspension. Further, a third DWI conviction means the judge must impose a jail sentence.
