If you’ve been charged in New Jersey for a DWI and you have been previously convicted in New Jersey or another state of a DWI, you would be facing in New Jersey, obviously, a second offense. If you are facing a second offense, the ramifications for you are significant. You are looking at a mandatory two year loss of license. You are looking at a mandatory thirty days of community service. You are looking at high monetary fines. You are also looking at between two and 90 days in the county jail; however, you can serve those two days at the Intoxicated Driver’s Resource Center. Again, it is important if you are charged with a second DWI that you contact an attorney who has experience handling these types of matters.
