New Jersey leads the nation in strictly monitoring prescription drug orders including imposing maximum durations for some first-time prescriptions for narcotic drugs. This is an effort on the part of the government to curb what it says is the fraudulent issuing of too many prescriptions for potential financial gain. In the last year, over 30 doctors have been targets of criminal action for allegedly prescribing narcotics when not appropriate.

Man accused of abusing former student

People in New Jersey who are accused of serious criminal offenses should always know that there are many nuances to the laws that may help them in their defense processes. One thing that often comes to light is the difference between what it takes to have a person found guilty of a crime versus what it takes to find a person responsible of a civil accusation. It can sometimes be for this reason that people are not always charged with crimes but may still sometimes be sought after in a civil lawsuit.

In such an instance, you may justified in questioning an alleged violation. Understanding what the expected speed limit is in a certain area may help you in contesting the claim that you were speeding.

As WebMD explains, many prescription medications with viable medical uses may be highly addictive

Woman charged with DUI

New Jersey residents who are investigated for suspected drunk driving may have to undergo many different tests before they are arrested, if that is the outcome of their investigation. These tests include both field sobriety tests and potentially chemical tests. Details of the results may be used by prosecutors to support certain consequences but they may also be used by defense teams if any of the tests were not accurate or performed properly, for example.
