Defendant Charged with DWI in Robbinsville NJ

Although driving while intoxicated charges are considered traffic in nature and thus will not result in a criminal record if convicted, the penalties associated with the conviction can be more devastating then most disorderly persons offenses (misdemeanors). If you have been placed under arrest and charged with DWI in Robbinsville, you are not alone. The Robbinsville Municipal Court presides over just under 150 DWI charges each and every year. The penalties if convicted include a lengthy license loss, high fines, community service, court ordered rehab, imposition of the ignition interlock device and jail time, even for a first time offender.

Robbinsville Police Charge Hamilton Man with DWI

A routine traffic stop in Robbinsville leads to a Hamilton Township man being taken into custody under suspicion of driving while intoxicated. According to the Trentonian, the Defendant was pulled over for failing to yield to a pedestrian. Following a brief conversation with the Defendant, the officers asked him to step outside the vehicle so he could be put through several standardized field sobriety tests (SFST). Based on his performance, the Defendant was placed under arrest and taken to the Robbinsville Police Station so that he could submit a breath sample into the Alcotest Machine. Based on the results, the Defendant was formally charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI), failing to yield to a pedestrian and careless driving. He was released upon a summons to appear in the Robbinsville Municipal Court to answer for the charges. If this is a first offense for the Defendant, he will be facing the following penalties:
