He gave me a sobriety test and arrested me for DUI. At the station I blew a 0.0 and a DRA gave me a variety of tests and took a urine sample. I got a ticket for DUI, not pulling to the right and not staying in my lane. The DRA said I was under the influence of K2 or spice (synthetic marijurana) My urine test came back clean. I have two prior DUI on my record in NJ. This would be my third. I was not under influence of anything, I stayed my lane because I saw the cop and I pulled to the right when the light went on . I had a shoe box in my car with tobacco and rolling papers. I role my own tobacco. The cop looked opened the shoe box, maybe he thought that was k2 or spice. Does any lawyer have any advice for me as to a defence? I would really appreciate it.
You have many defenses based on your version of the facts. Probable cause. Search and serizure. Observations. Lab test challenges. DRE credentials. These defenses are just a few of the many you may have. I suggest you contact a lawyer about this matter. A 3rd conviction or DWI in NJ carries a mandatory jail sentence of 180 days.
Based on your facts, you have many defenses to the charges. As a person with two convictions, I'm sure you understand the serious consequences of a third conviction and the importance of retaining a lawyer to get what appears to be a BS charge thrown out. Call me for a free consultation.
As you're aware, a 3rd conviction for DUI subjects you to a mandatory 180 days in the County jail as well as other fines and penalties. However, it sounds like you have many viable defenses in this case. Please call me or contact me through my website.
