Several in New Jersey arrested for DWI, other charges, recently

On Behalf of | Jul 2, 2022 | Criminal Defense |

Police in New Jersey and other states are charged with keeping their communities safe and free from criminal activity. One of the most common aspects of their jobs is conducting traffic stops on drivers for various moving violations. Often, these traffic stops lead to other charges, as is the case with several arrests that occurred throughout the Lacey Township area over the past few weeks.

Traffic stops and arrests

On June 11, police stopped a vehicle in a parking lot for failing to maintain its lane. The driver, a 55-year-old woman, was suspected of driving under the influence, and she was placed under arrest. Her charges include DWI as well as reckless driving. The following day, authorities conducted another stop in yet another parking lot in the area for unsafe lane changes. That driver was said to have been driving with a suspended license.

On June 13 and June 14, two drivers were arrested in separate incidents for driving under suspended licenses. One individual who was a passenger in the vehicle stopped on June 13 also had outstanding warrants and was taken into custody. Reportedly, the person arrested on June 14 for a suspended license violation also had an outstanding warrant.

Criminal defense

Considering the reported details regarding the initial traffic stops and subsequent arrests, the accused may have options available for mounting an effective criminal defense against the charges. Although the charges are not serious felonies, they can still have far-reaching adverse impacts. In order to increase their chances of obtaining the best outcomes possible, each of the accused will each want to work closely with an experienced criminal defense attorney in New Jersey for assistance.
