State v. Chun, et al.: New Jersey Supreme Court DWI Case
If You Already Entered “Conditional Plea”
If you have already entered a “conditional plea”, contact your attorney to follow up on the effect the Supreme Court’s decision (new case law) will have on your case. If you do not have an attorney, or if your attorney recommends that you consult an attorney that made the new case law, contact New Jersey DWI attorney Bartholomew Baffuto, Esq. for a consultation
. There may be something you can do depending on the evidence for conviction. You may be able to go back to the municipal court where you were convicted and try the case. You may have an opportunity to reverse your conviction. If you have a chance to fight it, you should fight it with a top DWI attorney. Otherwise, you are wasting a great chance! If you have a chance to go back to the municipal court and try the case again, you should plan well ahead and do it right. Contact New Jersey DWI attorney Bartholomew Baffuto, Esq. to discuss your options
If you pled guilty and were sentenced but sentence was stayed (i.e., you did not pay fines and your driving privilege was not suspended), a so-called “Chun stay”, you will receive a notice to return to court for execution of sentence.
On March 17, 2008 Chun stays ended because the Supreme Court decided the Alcotest litigation. Now, you decide. My clients will go to court to demand a trial; not for execution of sentence.
