As a repeat DWI offender, you can count on your history being used as evidence that you were likely driving drunk.
After all, most people can readily accept the idea that a person who does something once is more likely to do it again, so this is a flawed, if effective, strategy by the prosecution.
Obviously, the fact of a previous DWI has nothing to do with the facts of the case against you today.
In fact, the arresting officer may have become aware of the past conviction prior to approaching you, and that knowledge may have influenced their interaction with you.
A past DWI in New Jersey may make your case harder, but few DWI prosecutions are insurmountable.
