You need to consult with an experienced attorney to review all of the discovery, and to learn from you the details of what transpired. Without more information, no valid assessment of your chances of success can be offered. Best of luck to you.


The chances of dismissal are slim to none. The chances of winning at trial depend on the facts of the case and what can be proven. Obviously, you and the cop have different versions of events. What evidence is available (witnesses? cameras?) and the circumstances will dictate the chances of success. Much more information about location, timing, and the details is necessary to advise you properly. You will need a lawyer to handle this case if you want to successfully defend yourself.


Green St. is a fair court for DWI. You need an experienced criminal defense attorney familiar with Newark. It sounds like a trooper stop. If so there will be some video. Call with more information.
