Ony a few attorneys in New Jersey have been trained in the Draeger Alcotest® 7110, but Carmine Villani is one of those lawyers. The Alcotest® is the official breath test permitted by police in New Jersey.
Field Sobriety Test Practices
Police are allowed to use the standardized field sobriety test (SFST) on people suspected of drunken driving or of being otherwise impaired. A test is only reliable if they follow the exact, standardized method of implementation.
Drug Recognition Evaluation
Drug recognition evaluation (DRE) is the process by which law enforcement determines whether a driver is using drugs. Errors do happen when an officer uses the DRE to decide if a driver is under the influence. When these errors take place, you need a lawyer familiar with DRE protecting you. Villani & DeLuca will search for mistakes that may have happened during your arrest to protect your rights.

Your license will be suspended and a fine of up to $1,000 will be required when convicted of intoxicated driving. Interlock ignition devices are also a frequent requirement for a DUI conviction. Your blood alcohol concentration and number of DUI arrests will factor heavily in the penalties you receive.
Were you incorrectly charged with DWI in Marlboro, New Jersey? False BAC levels occur due to various factors. Villani & DeLuca will go after a strategy that looks closely at procedure by officers and malfunctioning equipment readings if you think you were wrongly charged.
Breath Test Refusal
The implied consent law that is implemented by police in NJ states that you don't have the right to refuse a breath test if there is enough reason to think that you have been driving intoxicated. If you do refuse to participate in the Alcotest®, you will be taken into custody and charged with refusal. Refusal charges in NJ can even overshadow the charges that result if you are convicted of a DUI.
If you were stopped under suspicion of drunken driving, a police officer must have enough reason to administer a breath test. If a police officer was not able to find probable cause, you will have a strong case to make against your DWI charges.
