PostSubject: 20K DWI cases could be tossed in N.J. after Supreme Court ruling   Tue Nov 13, 2018 5:17 pm

As many as 20,667 people found guilty of drunken driving in New Jersey could have their convictions tossed based on a Tuesday ruling of the state's Supreme Court.
In a unanimous decision, the high court found criminal charges against a State Police sergeant who was in charge of calibrating breath-testing devices made the test results from five counties inadmissible as evidence.
The court vacated the conviction of a woman who pleaded guilty to drunken driving based on a result from one of those machines - and then died while waiting for the legal fight to finish.
It also ordered state authorities to notify anyone whose case involved results from machines Sgt. Marc Dennis handled that those results weren't scientifically sound.
The decision opens the floodgates for thousands of people to challenge DWI convictions that occurred over nearly a decade.
