I pled guilty in 2004 to disorderly persons(simple assault) & plead guilty in 2010 to disorderly conduct? Could not get these expunged because I plead guilty to these charges.
DPs are under the criminal code. So I would disclose them. You can explain that New Jersey does not consider them crimes until you are blue in the face, but they are going to be on your criminal case history. You should consider an expungement so that you don't have to deal with these questions.See question
I had to drive a friend and her car home from a bar around midnight. I was not familiar with the area and was receiving directions from an intoxicated passenger. We were followed by a police car as soon as we left the bar and there was some hesita...
You have a very bad driving record, a number of tickets you shouldn't have recieved and face 7 points, loss of license, possible jail, community service and over a thousand in fines. Although you ask "how should I handle these?" I think you already know the answer. Hire a professional that will negotiate you through this matter and to a safe harbor.See question

i applied for pti for my 3rd degree agg assault charge is there a set time on how long it lasts i know it can be 1-3 years but i wanted to know if there was an exact time per charge
That is going to vary based on the facts of the case, the prosecutor and defendant's PTI interview. Its simply not the kind of thing where you can look at the charges and decide what is the length. There are some cases where the facts require probation to keep its eye on a defendant a little longer before dismissing the charges. On aggravated assault the prosecutor may oppose PTI and recent developments have taken PTI off the table for domestic violence cases.See question

The officer did you a favor as that offense does not have any points. It will go on your record and will be reported for insurance. I don't know what impact it will have on your rates. But it is better than a point bearing violation.See question
getting a second DWI 12 years after a 1st one, how does that work in regard to the penalties? Confused
If the violations are 10 years apart, it will be. Treated as a first for sentancing purposes. It remains a second offense however. Should you recieve a third it remains a third and you would be incarcerated for 180 days.See question

The officers testimony is evidence and is sufficient to convict you. If you are facing those penalties you would be strongly advised to retain counsel. The prosecutor in that court is rather tough, but you will do better with an attorney.See question

I was charged with dwi 10 years ago and I never took care of it. Now I have a court date but I live in Arizona. I am also disabled. Can I hire an attorney to go on my behalf or so I have to appear in person?
One way or the other you require a lawyer. Start there. Considering that you likely have a warrant for your arrest, it may be more difficult to convince the court to give you a break. But without counsel you will have a problem.See question
Got a dui in new jersey. Now reside in florida. No way can i come to new jersey. But want to take care of this. If it is possible around how much will it cost
It is possible if you have retained counsel and have decided to plead guilty. In fact, our Superior Court Judge in Somerville has aproved a form of affidavit for attorneys to use. I don't know whether that would be accepted in Wildwood, but there is likely a way to resolve this. If you are fighting the charges, it may be possible to have your appearances waived if an attorney is hired. Whatever you do, do not ignore this or a warrant will be issued.See question
