Muni-mail – DWI is a Continuing Offense – State v. Sylvia

[02/22/12 – 10:14 pm] In yesterday’s Appellate Division opinion in State v. Sylvia, the Court ruled that the fact that the defendant was initially observed operating a motor vehicle in one jurisdiction but was arrested in the neighboring town for DWI did not deprive the municipal court in the first town of jurisdiction to try the case based upon the fact that drunk driving is a continuing offense.
