2nd Offense DWI Penalties In New Jersey
If you are convicted of a second offense DWI there are certain fines and penalties you must be aware of. First of all, you are subject to a two-year loss of license and if this DWI happened in a school zone, you could be subject to a four-year loss of license. In addition, you’ll be subject to two to ninety days in the county jail. However, two of those days can be spent in the intoxicated drivers research center and most judges do not impose incarceration for the remaining time. If you are convicted, the court will order you to install an ignition interlock device regardless of what your breath alcohol reading was. The court will also order you to serve thirty days of community service.
