Revoked List Enhancement Repealed by Legislature – NJSA 39:3-40(g)

[05/12/10 – 1:31 pm] Effective January 16, 2010, the legislature repealed the provision of N.J.S.A. 39:3-40(g) which required a $3000 fine to be paid to the Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) when the underlying reason for the defendant’s suspension came about from a failure to pay surcharges on a timely basis. This sentencing enhancement was formerly imposed in addition to all other sentencing penalties and was collected by the MVC. The $3000 was automatically reduced to a judgment against the defendant until paid in full.

Defendants who have been assessed this fine since January 16th of this year should move for sentence reconsideration pursuant to Rule 7:9-4.
