How to Defend a DUI in South Jersey

Individuals arrested on DUI charges in New Jersey often overlook the possibility of building a defense to those charges entirely.  It’s common to think that their arrest is conclusive and there is no way to defend the DUI.

Frequently Asked Questions About How to Defend a DUI in South Jersey

FAQ: Are DUI checkpoints legal? Can you challenge the DUI checkpoint to defend my DUI charges?

Yes and yes. DUI checkpoints in New Jersey are legal only if certain specific criteria are satisfied. For example, notice of the checkpoint must be published and available to the public. Proper police supervision must be provided, and the police must have some justification for the checkpoint—for example, past evidence of an increased number of DUIs in the area. We can challenge these and other issues with the DUI checkpoint—and a successful challenge could result in your traffic stop being invalidated and exclusion of all evidence collected during the stop.

FAQ: What if the arresting officer was wearing a camera? Can you still help with my DUI defense?

Yes. In fact, the video footage taken by the officer can possibly be used as evidence in support of dismissal. For example, if the officer’s statements about your level of intoxication were exaggerated, the video evidence could be used to contradict that evidence.
