Driver in New Jersey faces DWI charges

A woman believed to have been speeding has been arrested following a traffic stop, according to an article in the New Jersey Herald. Officers in Sparta pulled the woman over and ended up charging her with DWI as well as with traffic violations. She has since been released in advance of an upcoming court appearance. There is no word as to whether she has retained criminal defense counsel at this time.

According to officers on the scene, the 24-year-old woman was on Sparta Avenue around 2 a.m. in the early morning of Sept. 29 when she was stopped. Police say she was speeding, but did not mention the speed she was clocked at. When officers approached the car, they said they could detect the smell of alcohol in the vehicle.

Field sobriety tests were conducted on-site after the woman allegedly admitted to having consumed three drinks. She was arrested and charged with driving under the influence, careless driving and speeding. She was processed at the local police headquarters before being released to a sober adult.

The details of the case are sparse in this report, making it difficult to determine whether New Jersey police acted in accordance with the law and the woman's rights. Depending on the type of roadside sobriety tests performed, her counsel could argue against their viability, as breath tests and other forms of sobriety test are not always reliable. A defense attorney will work to build a strong defense against the DWI charges charges by carefully reviewing the facts of the case as well as the applicable law.
