No Plea Bargaining DWI in New Jersey
By New Jersey court rules, a prosecutor is prohibited from plea bargaining a DWI charge. What that means is prosecutors rarely dismiss a DWI charge unless they believe that the DWI charge cannot be proved at trial. For a prosecutor to believe that a DWI charge cannot be proved, a defense attorney must convince the prosecutor that there are problems with the State’s case. Attorney Kevin Leckerman routinely finds problems with DWI prosecutions that either result in the dismissal of the DWI charge or a significant reduction in the severity of the penalties.
