Defense requests change of venue for trial

When New Jersey residents must experience trials after being charged with criminal offenses have rights just as much as do other people. One of these most basic rights is a fair trial. In some cases, this may not be possible and therefore defense teams may seek to request a new location for trials. Such is the case today for one man facing charges of attempted murder.

Man's eligibility for drug court to be evaluated

In New Jersey, crimes involving drugs may result in a variety of penalties for people who are ultimately convicted of their offenses. The sentences may be influenced in part by the nature of the offenses, if they are felonies or misdemeanors and whether or not any violence was used. 

Criminal exemptions for medical marijuana in New Jersey

New Jersey may not be one of the states that has yet to legalize recreational use of marijuana but it does allow the legal use of marijuana for medical purposes. According to the New Jersey Courts, the New Jersey Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act provides people approved for participation in the state's Medicinial Marijuana Program an exemption from civil and criminal prosecution or liability related to the drug. It also protects physicians, Alternate Treatment Centers, caregivers and parents of minor patients from prosecution or liability related to the purchase or possession or transportation of marijuana or paraphenalia.

Physician and wife accused of drug, other charges

Many people in New Jersey either knowingly or unknowingly hold stereotypes in their minds about the types of people who might be charged with drug crimes. In general the stereotypical drug crime defendant might be part of a gang, potentially unemployed or employed in a low-wage position and may even have a prior criminal record related to other types of offenses. However, the reality is that many people who have legal access to obtain or prescribe controlled substances may also be accused of criminal activity related to those substances.
