DWI Changes: An Update

In January, I posted a discussion of State v. Ciancaglini here, regarding the sentencing changes in the DWI and refusal laws.

Because the decision in Ciancaglini differed so markedly from prior court decisions, it has created confusion in the courts and defense bar.  Therefore, on May 7, 2010, the New Jersey Supreme Court granted certiorari, and will be reviewing the Appellate Division's decision.  Oral argument has not yet been scheduled.
