What cases require a court appearance?

If you live in New Jersey and have been arrested or even received a traffic violation you will want to have an understanding of how the court system works. The New Jersey Courts explains that serious criminal matters are handled or heard in Superior Court. Other less severe offenses are handled or heard in Municipal Court.

Plea deal in DWI case

New Jersey residents who have ever been stopped or arrested on suspicion of drunk driving know that the laws in this arena can be quite tough. Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs is not a criminal matter but even as a motor vehicle offense only, the consequences can be serious. These charges can also be faced by anyone, including a member of a law enforcement team.

What factors are measured in field sobriety tests?

If you are ever pulled over by and officer in New Jersey, you can be requested to participate in field sobriety tests. This request can be made if, during the stop, the officer suspects that you may be intoxicated. There are three different tests administered as part of the field sobriety tests. All are outlined by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

How a plea bargain works

New Jersey residents facing criminal charges can understandably feel nervous about the prospect of enduring a full criminal trial. The reality is that only a small portion of cases end up being decided in this manner. Instead, they are settled out of court. The American Bar Association explains that this type of an agreement is referred to as a plea negotiation or a plea bargain.

Army weapons stolen, two arrests made

Being charged with a weapons crime can happen in different situations. In some cases, New Jersey defendants are accused of crimes such as theft or domestic violence along with charges related to weapon use or possession. In other cases, firearms or other weapons are the sole focus of a criminal charge. Local, state or federal authorities can all be involved in cases involving felony weapons charges.
