    Answered . Yes. You will have to give them at court. Might as well. Better than pissing everyone off. Dwi has serious consequences and you should consult with a nj dwi lawyer as soon as you can.

    Answered . 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.
