DWI dismissal in Monmouth County

May 10, 2012

The Law Office of Tara Breslow was successful in winning a DWI matter by having it dismissed today, based upon the State's lack of evidence in proving that the defendant was under the influence at the time of the motor vehicle stop. The State failed to produce a Drug Recognition Expert during the night of the stop. This is often grounds for dismissal since the State cannot properly prove that the defendant was under the influence at the time of the motor vehicle stop. In this case, the defendant tested positive for marijuana in the urine test, however, the State could not link that to the Defendant being under the influence the night of the incident.
