Wall Township is a large municipality located in Monmouth County, New Jersey. The township has a population of over 25,000 people. Additionally, many of the major roadways in Monmouth County run through Wall Township. Wall borders multiple shore towns with a large number of bars. It is therefore a municipality that handles a significant number of Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) matters.

In New Jersey, DWI is a serious offense that can have significant penalties. A first offense DWI can carry a license suspension of between 3 months and 1 year, depending upon the blood alcohol content (BAC) of the individual involved. A second offense carries a license suspension of two years and potential jail time. A third offense carries a license suspension of ten years and a mandatory jail sentence of 180 days.

There are various defenses to a DWI charge, which can be raised. Some of those defenses include:

  • Challenging the reason the officer made the initial motor vehicle stop.
  • Challenging the way in which the field sobriety tests were administered.
  • Challenging the way in which the breath test was administered.

Obviously, your specific defense will depend upon the specific facts and circumstances of your case. It is important to have a qualified attorney review a DWI charge and determine what the best defense for your case will be.
