The police charged me with one 3rd and one 4th degree crime. The prosecutor said that, if I waive grand jury indictment, she would charge me with the 4th degree crime only without the 3rd degree and also give PTI a consideration. I took the offer...
First of all, it sounds like you are so far into the process that you would have to already have an attorney. Assuming that is the case, you should ask your attorney. But that aside, it doesn't sound right. What county was this in?See question
I was charged with disorderly persons possession of marijuana and paraphernalia in NJ. I have a co-def who claimed it but they still gave us both summons's. I am 34 and have never been in trouble with the law or otherwise. The only reason we were ...
If your codefendant "takes the weight" by pleading guilty and absolves you of any wrongdoing, then your case should be dismissed. But bear in mind, that even if it does, you will still have the arrest and the charge on your record. To get the slate wiped clean so no one would be able to find the fact that you were charged would need an expungement.See question

It is the NJ version of a misdemeanor. Punishable by up to 6 months in jail, $100 fine, and at least 10 days of community service for a first offense. For a second, there is more community service, and for a third, it is 90 days mandatory in jail. They will probably offer you to plead guilty to it again with no jail time. Hire a lawyer.See question
Should I plea guilty to my charges? Criminal offense but no jail time. What will happen I plea not guilty? I only need to pay a fine? It's in the municipal court
You should hire a lawyer. Pleading guilty will leave you with a criminal record. Pleading not guilty will eventually lead to a trial.See question
Its my friend's case but I don't know all the details but i do know quite a bit. Je just told me that a while back, he was cited for loud music in New Brunswick in his off campus dorm. The people had a party by playing loud music, while he studied...
Probably not. He would at least have to call the municipal court and have them look up the money he paid and ask them to rescind the warrant. Otherwise he'll have to come into court and possibly risk a $500 contempt fee.See question

I had a weapon charge and assault charge but they were both dropped now all thats left is an interfering with transportation charge is it likely that it will be dismissed?
Without knowing more about your case, I can't say for sure. But if you are on for arraignment for something after other charges were dismissed or downgraded, it is unlikely that the remaining charge will be dismissed unless it's for a good reason.See question
I just recently been arrested while on parole. The charge is a disorderly persons for moving property that wasn't mine. I don't want my parole to violate me because I will take the case to trial for I am not guilty. But can parole arrest me or vio...
No, the level of proof needed by parole is lower than for a criminal conviction. You should keep your eye on jail credits, too. If you get locked up on the parole violation, you will only be getting gap time on any jail sentence for the new charge.See question
Yes. Unless you have had a conditional discharge or pre-trial intervention in NJ, or a similar program in another state, you are not precluded from it.See question
