New Jersey man charged with DWI after fatal NJ Turnpike crash

Prosecutors in New Jersey say that a 24-year-old man was intoxicated when he was involved in a fatal collision in the early morning hours of Oct. 19. The North Plainfield resident was charged with driving while intoxicated and death by auto. The accident occurred in the southbound lanes of the New Jersey Turnpike shortly after 4 a.m.

New Jersey DUI penalties

New Jersey law provides for some rather severe penalties for those convicted of DUI, even if the person is a first-time offender in that area. It is important for many people to understand the potential consequences they face if they drive while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Penalties faced by DUI defendants

Someone who has been accused of DUI in New Jersey may face a variety of penalties, including license suspension and imprisonment. The precise penalties the accused can expect to face typically vary with respect to the individual circumstances of the case. A defendant's history of past DUI offenses, where he or she was driving at the time of being taken into custody and how the initial investigation was conducted can all play a substantial role in penalty imposition.
