Haddon Heights, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/23/2014 -- New Jersey DWI defense attorney Stephen Lukach recently scored a major victory for his client, P.P. During a hearing on 26, Judge Casarow of the Mid-Salem Municipal Court dismissed the DWI, reckless driving, and Possession of a controlled dangerous substance in a motor vehicle charges against his client, P.P. "This was a long time coming," said Lukach. Mr. Lukach successfully challenged the operation of the motor vehicle in this case, which is one of the elements of proving a DWI, reckless driving, and possession of CDS in a motor vehicle.
"They didn't have the operation element," Mr. Lukach said. The vehicle was parked at a rest stop with the engine running. DWI defense attorney Lukach explained that there is well settled case law that a parked vehicle with the engine running doesn't constitute operation. Mr. Lukach further said, "what it really boils down to is 'did the person intend to operate the vehicle?' In this case, it was an emphatic "NO!"
