In New Jersey a third conviction for BUI or DUI the convicted person will serve 180 days in the county jail. It does get serious. But I am very good at what I do, so there are a few "technicalities" I can use if the facts fit on the prior DUI conviction which could keep the defendant out of jail even if found guilty on the new thrid offense charge.

I am being a smart ass with the use of the word technicalities, it is knowing the correct application of the law (case law) for the situation.

I've always thought the best advice was this. If you get into a situation where you've had too much to drink, park it and call a cab. If on the water, well you just shouldn't have done it in the first place. Anchor or keep it docked.
Chit happens, but you should learn from it.


Have any of the lawyers looked through this law to see if it fits the thread title?

Enforcements job is to enforce the law how they sometimes interpret the law, sometimes they do bad and sometimes do good. Theres just a lot of big talk in here and everything I've see is you dont get away with it, and the ones that do SPEND big money.

A peice of advice for you all out there your best defense is silence. Most of the time COPS do not have evidence on you they talk you into telling the whole story. You dont know how many times in court Ive seen defendants come in and the COPS didnt have anything on them, and the defendents talking themselves into a conviction. Personally on a lot of things dont waste your time on a lawyer, if and when you get arrested dont say anything, but dont be a pain in the ace either. Get to court plead the fifth, the burden of proof on the prosecution.

Its better to have an opinion even if its wrong than no opinion and be a mindless bafoon like yourself.
You sure are a cocky know-it-all for someone your age. I need to roll my pants up your BS is so DEEP. Where do you get this crap "Its better to have an opinion even if its wrong than no opinion". LOL

At times it's better to take a step back instead of stepping it up a notch each time. That is something you will learn with maturity. Be safe and enjoy your summer!

Just when I was about to compliment you on more good advice, you do this:

Whatever. He who has himself as a lawyer has a fool for a client.

Also, I wasn't being dismissive or derogatory towards MP's. Just like any other occupation, there are good and bad. So what is your job? (PS - if you give the "top secret, national security" answer, these dudes are never gonna let you live it down.

Whatever happened to "Better to remain silent and look like a fool than open your mouth and remove all doubt"?

National statistics show that it works every time, 76% of the time!

It also works when your having trouble swaying the d.a.

Just bring him out for a round of golf and give him a glass.....
