Can I get my case dropped or lowered?
Question Details: I was pulled over for speeding; I think I was about 19 mph over the limit. I was arrested and they searched my car without asking. They then took me back to the station. I blew a .1 and was charged with a 4th degree DWI. This is my first offense for anything ever. I am a graduating senior in college, so I cannot afford the fees or afford to get my license suspended since I'm a commuter.
It is very unlikely that you can get the case dropped or dismissed. Police, prosecutors, and the courts take DUI very seriously. A practice in NJ and and handle DUI cases as well as other traffic offenses and I have never seen a DUI be dropped. It is likely you will get the minimum penalties since you otherwise have a clean record and are in college, but i doubt they will drop the case entirely.
