In New Jersey, driving while intoxicated (DWI) is a serious offense. A person found to be operating a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level of 0.08% or above is guilty of DWI in New Jersey. The offense of DWI also applies to a person found to be operating a vehicle while under the influence of drugs. This is often referred to as driving under the influence (DUI). Operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated or under the influence of narcotics are both serious motor vehicle offenses that are governed by the same statute in New Jersey, N.J.S.A. 39:4-50. For this reason, anyone charged with the offense of DWI should choose an attorney who is well qualified and experienced in handling DWI cases in Caldwell and throughout Essex County and the State of New Jersey.
The harsh penalties associated with a DWI conviction in New Jersey are complicated and vary based upon a wide range of factors. Some of these factors include the age of the offender, blood alcohol concentration level (BAC) at the time of arrest and whether the offender has ever been convicted of DWI on a prior occasion. It takes the expertise of an experienced criminal defense attorney to protect your rights, analyze your case and seek the best possible resolution of your matter.
Though today the Caldwell area is considered to be a suburb of both Newark and New York City, the area originally developed as its own individual, self-contained town and economy rather than as urban sprawl from a larger city. When it was formed, a few miles of woods separated downtown Caldwell from Newark or any of its developing suburbs.
A prominent local magazine ranked Caldwell as its 3rd best place to live in its 2010 rankings of the “Best Places To Live” in New Jersey.
