Newark, NJ- In New Jersey, if an individual is convicted of their first DWI, they are most likely going to have their license suspended for up to one year, or more, depending on the details of their case. When their court-ordered suspension is up, a DWI defendant can have their license reinstated, but some DWI defendants fail to do so for different reasons. Perhaps, a defendant can’t afford the reinstatement fees or simply failed to go through the administrative process when the suspension period is up. What happens to these people when they are caught driving after their period of suspension should have ended but didn’t? How should the courts treat individuals who drive while suspended in these circumstances?
