DWI in Camden County
Driving while intoxicated (DWI) cases are heard in the municipal courts in Camden County. You can be charged with DWI if prosecutors believe that you were driving a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol content (BAC) over the legal limit of 0.08 percent. Even if they do not know your BAC, prosecutors can still charge you with DWI based on a police officer’s alleged observations of intoxication.
DWI is too often mistaken for a relatively benign offense. In reality, a DWI conviction can have serious and long-lasting consequences including probation, jail time, license suspension, and costly fines. The penalties sharply increase if you have a prior conviction, so it is crucial to avoid any DWI conviction whenever possible. Robert E.
