Drunk driving conviction anywhere in U.S. will expose you to 2C:40-26

[04/27/2016, 3:38 p.m.]  In today’s published Appellate Court opinion in State v. Luzhak, the Appellate Division construed NJSA 2C:40-26 (Operating motor vehicle during period of license suspension, fourth degree crime) to apply anywhere in the United States.

Your clients need to know a drunk driving conviction anywhere in the U.S. will expose them to 2C:40-26 – not just in New Jersey.

For example, if your client gets nailed with a 2nd offense in Kansas, he is eligible for prosecution under 2C:40-26.
