DWI Attorney in Keyport, NJ
New Jersey Driving While Intoxicated charges are severe. Our state does not recognize the right for a provisional license and does not allow plea-bargaining in DUI related cases. This is why it is imperative that you find the support of a legal team who understands your rights, as well as what the state needs to prove in order for charges to stick. In order for the prosecutions to successfully convict a person of DUI charges, two things must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt:
1) The accused operated a motor vehicle demonstrating control over the vehicle and a substantial intent to drive.
2) The state must prove that operation of the vehicle occurred while the accused was intoxicated.
