DUIs can be very expensive, but not always in the way you would think. While the state of New Jersey imposes fines, fees and surcharges for both first-time and repeat offenses, there are other costs to be aware of.
In many states, first-time DUI offenders can participate in diversionary programs that allow them to avoid the harsh penalties of a conviction and keep their records clean. While New Jersey does have diversion programs - such as the Pre-Trial Intervention Program ("PTI"), the Conditional Discharge Program and the Conditional Dismissal Program - for certain offenses, none of these programs apply to DUI. However, that does not mean your case is hopeless.
