The officer came to my residence in New Jersey and wanted me to give him My fingerprints because he forgot to do it on the night of the arrest.
Officers frequently forget to take prints, I recently had a young man who was arrested for a disorderly persons offense and the officer there also forgot to take prints.
The answer is overwhelmingly, yes. Your DWI arrest does not get effected by whether the officer forgot to take your prints the night of the arrest, and the judge will not sentence you without same.
I would also follow the advice of the other lawyers in this forum and advise you to seriously consider getting counsel in this matter.
