Jackson NJ First Offense Driving While Intoxicated Penalties

The penalties that you or your loved one now faces depend upon the level of intoxication determined by the arresting officers. The legal limit in New Jersey is a .08% Blood Alcohol Content (BAC).

  • If you or your loved one is charged with drunk driving and your BAC is between .08% and .10%, then you face a fine of $250 to $400, a three-month license suspension, 12 hours in the Intoxicated Driver Resource Center, and up to thirty days in jail.
  • Understand that the penalties associated with a first offense DWI significantly increase if your BAC was greater than .10% at the time of arrest. In this case, in addition to the previous penalties, you or your loved one faces a suspension between 7 months and 1 year, $300 to $500 in fines, and up to thirty days in prison.
  • Finally, if your BAC is .15%or greater, then you must also deal with the mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device on your vehicle for a period of time after the restoration of your license.
