Changes to the rules of evidence may benefit defendants

The New Jersey rules of evidence, like the federal rules, were designed to govern how forms of proof are offered at trial. Under the federal rules of evidence, for example, a prosecutor cannot introduce evidence of a past crime for fear it may prejudice the jury. This can be particularly important in cases involving violent crimes such as domestic violence charges and aggravated assault where a prior conviction could be the nail in the coffin for the defendant.

Police suspect group of juveniles of violent crimes

When juveniles are involved in violent crimes, long-term consequences can impact their future. In some cases, juvenile law procedures in an area may allow authorities to charge suspects as adults, which can create even more dire consequences if individuals are convicted. Such ramifications may be facing four juveniles who are suspected of being involved in more than a dozen violent crimes in New Jersey.

When someone is arrested on serious charges, possible penalties can include fines and jail time. Facing a violent crime charge means the accused needs to know the laws, rights and defense options for his or her particular situation, because a conviction can mean a lifetime behind bars.

Man allegedly bites police officer en route to hospital

Assault charges can carry serious penalties like fines and jail time, and if the assault is carried out against a police officer, the consequences can become more severe. People involved in violent crime incidents of any kind should understand their rights under the law, as these incidents, depending on the severity, can lead to misdemeanors or felonies on your record.
