Wayne NJ Criminal Defense Lawyers
The penalty for possessing controlled dangerous substance (“CDS”) in a motor vehicle is extreme. Believe it or not, the penalty for the motor violation under N.J.S.A. 39:4-49.1, possession of CDS in a motor vehicle, is more stringent than that which applies to driving while intoxicated. If you are convicted of this charge, the court must impose a mandatory drivers license suspension for a term of two years. And it is important to keep in mind that the fines and penalties under N.J.S.A. 39:4-49.1 are in addition to those that apply if a commensurate conviction is imposed for Possession of Less than 50 Grams of Marijuana or some other drug offense.
