State v. Luzhak

On April 28, 2016 The NJ Appellate Court opinion of State v. Luzhak was handed down. The so-called “indictable/felony driving while revoked” statute, NJSA 2C:40-26 (Operating motor vehicle during period of license suspension, fourth degree crime) was construed to apply anywhere in the United States. So now a drunk driving conviction anywhere in the U.S. will expose you to 2C:40-26 – not just in New Jersey.  For example, if you get a 2nd offense in New York, and then drive while revoked, you will face a likely 6-month jail sentence.
