Multiple charges levied against man

New Jersey residents who may be concerned about being arrested for a criminal offense should learn that sometimes being stopped for one incident may actually result in them being accused of multiple offenses. These situations can be very unnerving and make a defendant wonder if there is any hope of defending against so many charges. At this time, keeping a focus on the fact that the law does provide such an opportunity is important.

One man who is only 19 years old today may well need to be reminded that he does in fact have a right to a thorough defense. Reports indicate that in the early morning hours the defendant is said to have taken four bags of snack items from a mini mart and left. Officers apprehended the man and placed him under arrest for shoplifting.

However, the defendant is said to have been intoxicated and, because he was under the age of 21, he was also charged with consuming alcohol by a minor. The reports did not indicate if a breath test was administered and, if so, what his blood alcohol level might have been. The reasons are not explained but a disorderly conduct charge was also levied against the young man.

Getting a consultantation with an attorney who is exerienced in representing people charged with misdemeanor offenses in New Jersey may give defendants an opportunity to learn how they may proceed when facing multiple criminal charges.
