what happens if you get pulled over drunk and if you are not drunk but suspended for ten years in NJ for third dwi charge?
New Jersey is part of the interstate drivers compact and will be notified If you are convicted of any moving violation. You have committed a violation of 2C 40-26, a 4th degree charge punishable by 15 months in jail. Fight the out of state charge like your freedom is at stake. Because it is.
You do not have a license. So you will likely be charged with either unlicensed driver or driving revoked in the other State. You will be punished by that State’s laws. Then NJ will find out about it. James Abate is a great attorney and we rarely disagree. But here I think you would be subject to driving revoked on a DWI suspension by the MVC and the jail would be 10 days to 90 and another 2 1/2 year suspension and $2000-$3000 fine plus surcharges. The criminal offense with the 18 months prison sentence was not committed in the State so I do not know if that would be charged.
