Winslow is the largest municipality in Camden County so it is not surprising that you may have been charged with DWI in the town. Approximately 150 motorists face a driving while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs (e.g. marijuana, prescription medication, etc.) offense in the community virtually every year. Chances are that you were stopped on the Atlantic City Expressway or New Jersey Route 73, the two highest volume highways in the community, although there is 245.16 miles of roadway in Winslow Township in which you could have been arrested. What is imperative for you to know is that your success or failure in avoiding penalties that include a mandatory driver’s license suspension will hinge on your ability to persuade the court that the case against you is genuinely flawed. You will not be able to escape a conviction unless your attorney persuades the judge that the charge is defective since plea bargaining is outlawed in resolving N.J.S.A. 39:4-50 offenses.
