No, while a DWI in New Jersey isn’t a criminal matter and you won’t have a criminal record if convicted, it is also distinct from most other traffic infractions when it comes to the levels of penalties you’ll face.
As a first offender, your license can be revoked for three months, and you’ll be stuck facing fines, and time in an Intoxicated Driver Resource Center (IDRC).
Subsequent convictions mean even harsher penalties, including loss of your license for up to two years as a second offender, and a decade on a third offense.
In every DWI case, there are defenses. Matthew Reisig has helped more than 1,000 New Jersey drivers avoid conviction on DWI charges.
