Charged With a Second DWI Offense in Holmdel New Jersey

Unlike a first offense or third offense where there is room for flexibility in terms of penalties, this is not the situation when someone has been charged with a second offense. If you are found guilty of this variety of 39:4-50 violation, the consequences are relatively set. You will have your driver’s license suspended for a period of two years. In order to restore and maintain your privileges once the suspension period has elapsed, you must pay $1,000 per year for three years to the NJ Division of Motor Vehicles as a surcharge. You will also be responsible for payment of a fine of $500-$1,000 and court assessments that can exceed an additional $500. An individual convicted in Holmdel of a second offense must also serve 2-90 days in jail, 30 days community service, 48 hours in the Intoxicated Driver’s Resource Center, and maintain an Ignition Interlock on their motor vehicle for 1-3 years following restoration of their privileges.
