Multiple charges face man in Ocean County

Some New Jersey residents may be concerned about the risk of being accused of criminal activity. Among the issues to face when this happens is the fact that it is possible to face more than one type of criminal charge at a time. This may complicate matters and potentially increase the penalties that a person may be at risk of serving.

An example of this type of situation can be seen in a recent case involving a man from Manchester. The 44-year-old defendant is accused of trying to kill a 35-year-old man from Toms River. The alleged victim suffered non-fatal injuries after being shot. Specific details on the shooting are not known yet police stopped the defendant while in his vehicle. After that, a police chase on foot ensued. This chase led to the defendant’s arrest.

In addition to the attempted murder charge, the defendant is accused of weapons charges. Reports indicate that two guns were found in his vehicle. Details on exactly what types of guns were found have not been released. In addition to the weapons and attempted murder charges, the man is facing additional charges for resisting police arrest and eluding officers. His bail has been set at $900,000. He has been put in custody in the Ocean County jail.

Situations like the above are rarely simple or straightforward. Given this, it is understandable that defendants would be nervous about the potential outcome. Talking with an attorney may provide options for a defense that can help people at these difficult times.
