Juvenile crimes come with their own consequences

In the United States individuals who have not yet reached the age of majority are generally viewed as juveniles in the eyes of the criminal justice system. The juvenile law system is very different than the adult criminal justice system, and it requires specific expertise on the part of attorneys who handle these types of cases. Juvenile law, for example, consists of different procedures and different laws than the adult criminal system.

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.

Jersey City man arrested for DUI after crashing into police truck

When it comes to alcohol and driving, a momentary lapse in judgment can sometimes result in severe penalties.

That kind of representation is likely what a Jersey City man will need after he crashed his vehicle into a police truck.

Bayonne man gets 60-year prison sentence for kidnapping, rape

Sometimes intoxication is a factor in sexual assault allegations.

Two men exonerated after 27 years in prison

When two men were prosecuted for a murder back in 1975, it only took the jury 12 minutes to deliberate and return guilty verdicts.
