Re: Right Description, Wrong Statute
As far as your original question -- will the wrong statute be enough to get that ticket dismissed -- it's hard to tell. I'm not familiar with NJ law, but in WA it certainly is enough for a dismissal.
The "description" on the ticket is one thing, but the statute contains the actual "elements" that must be proven in order to get a conviction. In order to defend yourself, you must, therefore, know the elements. We have case law on the books that basically says that a defendant is NOT responsible for researching the law in order to determine the charges against him/herself.
Unfortunately, I don't know if it's the same in NJ, but it might be worth a shot. There's also a chance that the officer won't show up, which I think is a requirement in NJ. Lwpat or Mr. Knowitall might be able to provide better answers -- I'm on the other side of the country.
Where am I going? And why am I in this handbasket?
