    I agree with the other attorneys. It was a disorderly persons offense (misdemeanor) and you were eligible to have the record expunged five years after you completed probation for it. If your job applications ask if you have ever been convicted of anything (not just a felony), then you would have to answer yes. If the offense is expunged, however, you would legally be able to answer "no" (with a few limited exceptions such as employment with law enforcement or the judiciary) to that question....

    I strongly urge you to consult a lawyer. If you plead guilty to the offense, you will have a criminal record. Most NJ cocaine possession arrests are for simple possession (3rd degree). If convicted of a third degree offense in New Jersey, the defendant faces up to five years in jail. The reality is that most first time drug possession offenders will never see the inside of a jail cell, as there is a presumption against incarceration for third degree offenses. Moreover, there is a deferred...

    I would first try to attack the stop on your behalf by filing a motion to suppress evidence. Hopefully, the charges would be dismissed. Your second best option would be to enter into a diversionary program. Upon completion, the charges would be dismissed. Six months after dismissal, you could have the record of the arrest expunged. Some agencies (law enforcement and the judiciary) would still have access to the record.

    You will not only be assessed points and fines if you plead guilty but your insurance rate will also increase. You should hire an attorney to get the points reduced and save money in the long run. An attorney could most likely get the charge reduced to unsafe driving, a 0 point ticket. Please call if you have questions.

    You should consult an attorney and have your record expunged. Even though the charge was dismissed, the record of the arrest still exists. Under N.J.S.A. 2C:52-6, you may at any time following the dismissal of a charge expunge the record of the arrest and all records and information pertaining to the arrest. Expungements take time to process so its best to get started on the process asap. Please call us if you have any questions.

    All juvenile cases are heard in the Superior Court. All juvenile cases are heard in the family court. Municipal Courts have no authority over juveniles for anything other than motor vehicle offenses. All juveniles must be represented by an attorney. If our family's income is below a certain amount, then you may be eligible for a public defender. Otherwise, you must hire a private attorney. Since the amount shoplifted is below $500, the offense would be classified as a disorderly persons...

    I agree with the other attorney. Rather than merely plead guilty to a simple possession charge, which many individuals unfortunately do because they do not speak with an attorney, a defendant charged with simple possession is often eligible for a conditional discharge. This is a diversion which allows a defendant, who has never been in trouble before, to avoid this criminal charge on their permanent record. Essentially, the individual is given a one year probationary period where, if the...
