Teenager charged with DWI in New Jersey

Halloween, for many people in New Jersey, is a night to which many look forward all year. It is often a night of fun. Unfortunately, this past Halloween left one teenager in the hospital with serious injuries and another facing criminal charges, including DWI.

Police say that the incident that led to the hospitalization and arrest, respectively, happened just before 8 p.m. Reports indicate that a car driven by a 19-year-old male struck a 14-year-old pedestrian. It is unclear if the pedestrian was trick-or-treating at the time.

In fact, many of the details surrounding the incident are unclear, including whether the pedestrian had been in a crosswalk at the time of the accident. Police say that the pedestrian suffered injuries that were severe, but he is expected to survive. The driver now faces multiple charges, including possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, among others. He was also issued multiple summonses, including for failure to yield to a pedestrian, careless driving and reckless driving. It is unclear if police suspect that the driver was under the influence of drugs, alcohol or both.

Those facing DWI and other criminal charges in New Jersey often face an uncertain future. In many cases, they may be unsure of their legal options. As such, many choose to seek guidance from an experienced criminal defense attorney. A professional can help those in such a situation fully understand their options and choose the most appropriate course, including whether to fight the charges in court or seek a plea deal.
