New Jersey man sentenced for selling illegal weapons

Being charged with a crime is can be a very scary experience. Depending on the charges, an individual charged with a crime faces the possibility of years in prison and large monetary fines. Due to the magnitude of these potential penalties, it is important that anyone facing criminal charges enlist the aid of a qualified defense attorney. A good criminal defense is the only difference that exists between defendants that go to jail and defendants that go free.

Reasonable suspicion and traffic stops that lead to arrest

Drug charges are taken very seriously in New Jersey. Sentencing for individuals convicted of drug crimes, however, can vary dramatically. Factors considered in sentencing include the amount of drugs found on the individual, the type of substance seized, specific drug charge including whether the person is charged with drug possession or drug manufacturing, the age of the defendant, and of course, whether the defendant has a history of drug charges.

What should I do if arrested or if the police are looking for me?

If you receive a call from the police that they are looking to arrest you or if you believe that you are going to be arrested, the first thing you should do is call a criminal lawyer. Make sure the attorney has a lot of experience handling criminal cases from beginning to end. You may have a friend who is a lawyer and offers to help, but you really want someone who specializes in criminal law because the choices you make in the beginning of the case can have an impact on how well the resolution will be in the end.

DUI charges can have long-term consequences

Drunk driving is treated very aggressively in New Jersey. Under New Jersey state law a person who operates a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol content level of 0.08 percent or greater is considered to be driving while intoxicated. Being found guilty of a drunk driving charge in New Jersey is a serious crime that carries penalties including community service, probation, monetary fines and fees, mandatory license suspension and possible jail time.

Driving while intoxicated can carry some serious ramifications for the offender. A person who is caught driving with a blood alcohol content level above the legal limit may end up facing penalties that include license suspension and jail time. If individuals drink and drive while on the job, they could end up losing their jobs as well, especially if that job involves driving and public safety. Facing a drunk driving charge requires a thorough understanding of both legal rights and potential consequences.
