Mr. Porreca represented a defendant in Parsippany Municipal Court on a first-offense DWI. The client's blood alcohol was .15%, which exposes a defendant to the required installation of an ignition interlock device as well as a 7-12 month driver's license suspension. .
After obtaining an expert report which exposed several procedural inadequacies with the officers' operation of theAlcotest device, Mr. Porreca was able to convince the prosecutor to offer this client a "tier 1" DWI, which only carries a 90 day drivers license suspension. Mr. Porreca was able to get all of the defendant's other tickets dismissed.
