The state of New Jersey categorizes criminal offenses in two forms: indictable felonies and disorderly behavior misdemeanors. But in either case, the state has the burden to prove a defendant’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. When you’ve been arrested and charged, the arresting officer is required to follow procedures based on our state laws and our Constitution.
While your rights matter, fighting DUI cases is still difficult. The established penalties for operating a vehicle or boat while intoxicated depend on the defendant’s Blood Alcohol Content BAC levels at the time of arrest. A BAC of .08% or greater is the legal level of intoxication, while a BAC of .10% or greater results in stricter fines and penalties. If the arresting officer suspects intoxication, the defendant is required to take a breathalyzer test. Refusal to do so could result in greater charges.
Always remember that you have the right to legal representation and to seek North Wildwood criminal lawyers that protect you from or reduce the severity of punishments. Joseph C.
