Second Offense DWI in Woodbridge
If you are convicted of a second offense DWI in Woodbridge, NJ, the surcharge is the same as that of a first offense, $1,000 per year for three (3) years. The amount of the fine for a second offense increases to between $500 and $1,000 dollars, with the exact amount being left up to the discretion of the judge in Woodbridge Municipal Court presiding over the case. A second offender is also required to perform 30 days of community service (each day consisting of 6 hours).
Additionally a mandatory jail sentence is imposed for second offense, ranging from 2 to 90 days. Although this incarceration doesn’t often take place in a jail (a 48 hour period of internment at an Intoxicated Driver Resource Center is often acceptable), certain aggravating factors can make actual jail time more likely. There is a mandatory loss of driving privileges for a minimum of two years. The second time offender must also satisfy the requirements of the Intoxicated Driver Resource Center. Finally, the second time offender is required to install an Ignition Interlock Device in all of the vehicles he owns, leases, or regularly operates for 1-3 years.
