I was pulled over and the cop asked me where I was going, I told him I was going and gave him my current address. However when he arrested me and took me for booking, he did not even bother to ask me to confirm my current address, he simply took information from an ID that expired 5 years ago.
Unfortunately this is not a defense for the case. I suggest hiring a good criminal lawyer to find a defense that will have a good chance of winning and if not at least some way to minimize the penalties you are facing.
In NJ that is not a defense. What is worse is that they will notify you of court dates at the old address. You will not receive it, will not appear and an FTA warrant may issue. What is even worse, as I read your post, is that MVC has the old address too so you will not receive notice that you will be suspended if you do not take care of the ticket. You are required to change address on your license. If you were driving with an expired license you have that problem as well. That are not many tickets that require "booking" at the the station. DWI is one. If you such a serious charge retain an attorney. Even if the technical defects you search for are valid without an attorney you will not be able to negotiate a dismissal. The prosecutor in Middlesex is Tim Asch. Good guy but tough prosecutor. Judge Fackelman is no patsy either.
