A conviction for a criminal offense can have devastating effects on one’s life. This result is further compounded when a defendant feels that they have been wrongfully convicted.
Victor Rotolo successfully argues before the NJ Supreme Court in a case of constitutional import, in which the Court ruled that a DUI conviction cannot be used in any later DUI case for sentencing purposes if, (1) the individual plead or was found guilty, and (2) the individual was not advised of his/her right to counsel and, as to indigent individuals, the right to assigned counsel.
If you or a loved feels that you have been wrongfully convicted, you have an opportunity to appeal your conviction.
