The state of New Jersey takes an aggressive stance on drugs. Law enforcement is proactive in combating the effects of abuse and the sale of drugs in the state. Courts hand down harsh sentences and penalties for drug crime convictions. Simple possession of a narcotic could be a misdemeanor while a larger amount can constitute a felony with large fines and possible jail time. If you are caught selling drugs, including marijuana, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, or over-the-counter prescriptions, you are most likely facing a felony charge with overwhelming fines and years of incarceration.
Drunk driving charges are a serious matter. In New Jersey, the laws are strict and the courts aggressively prosecute cases. If you have been stopped for a DUI and charged with a crime, you have a lot to consider. Some DUI charges can come with severe fines and probation. Higher level DUI charges can come with overwhelming fines and jail time. A DUI charge on your record can haunt you for years and affect your livelihood. If you have been charged with a DUI, you should contact an attorney immediately.
Everyone makes mistakes. In New Jersey, you may have the chance to erase the record of some convictions and arrests that would affect you for years to come. Even if you weren’t convicted, an arrest will stay on your record until you get it expunged. If granted by the court, expungement is a process that removes and isolates records of arrests, convictions, and anything related to a minor crime from databases that employers, schools, housing officials, and other authority figures may access to check your past.
Children don’t always make mature decisions. In some cases, those decisions may lead to detainment or arrest. When parents face the reality that their children have made a serious mistake and committed a crime, they have a lot to consider. Depending on the offense, consequences may range from something as simple as an essay written for the juvenile conference committee to being waived up and tried as an adult in the most serious cases.
Violent crimes are the most serious offenses you can be charged with in New Jersey. Being arrested and convicted of a violent crime has the potential to completely alter your future and that of your family. If you have been accused of a violent crime, it is critical that you retain an attorney who will effectively advocate for those who face dire charges and circumstances.
