Penalties for Second Offense DWI in New Jersey

If you have been charged with your second DWI offense in New Jersey, the penalties will be significantly heightened. Therefore, you are likely facing monetary fees between $500 and $1000, a one-year to two-year license suspension, up to 48 hours of jail time, and 30 days of community service. You will also be required to install an ignition interlock device in your car for between 2 years and 4 years after your license is restored. However, an experienced and aggressive DWI attorney may be able to minimize a 2nd DWI charge by seeking to have it classified as a first offense, or even defeat the charges outright.

As you can see, the penalties associated with a Second Offense DWI are grave and differ significantly from the first offense. Therefore it is necessary to hire a lawyer who will aggressively fight the state’s case against you. Will Proetta, Esq., our firm’s founding attorney is certified in the use and correct maintenance of the Alcotest 7110, which is the very device used by New Jersey police to measure BAC. Furthermore, he is a certified Standardized Field Sobriety Testing instructor. These unique qualifications allow him to carefully scrutinize the state’s case against you. He is also qualified to bring into question the arresting officer’s conduct by challenging the validity of the traffic stop, the arresting officer’s use of field sobriety testing and the Alcotest, and any other areas of protocol in which a thorough understanding of the technicalities of DWI arrests are needed. To build a case strategy with an experienced Ocean County Second Offense DWI lawyer, call us at (848) 238-2100.
