I recieved a notice this morning in the mail (I live in NY) from the Jersey City court saying I have a warrant issued for my arrest over unanswered complaint, and bail set is $0. As far as I know, I am in no trouble. But why the warrant f...
That's weird. Call the court. Although it is almost impossible to get in touch with anyone in Jersey City Municipal Court. Even though your bail is $0, if you live in NY it could be come a problem if you got picked up on the warrant there.See question
I was caught shop lifting a pair of jeans at Lord and Taylor. They took me to the back room and took down my information and took my photo, but the explicitly told me that I wouldn't go to jail, and that it would not appear on my permanent record....
If the police didn't come, then you probably weren't criminally charged. This was just Lord and Taylor's people taking your information to put on the wall in their security office so they can recognize your and charge you with trespassing if they see you in the store again. So don't go into the store again. Or ANY Lord and Taylor. You should probably stay away from the mall for a while, too.See question
I pled guilty in 2004 to disorderly persons(simple assault) & plead guilty in 2010 to disorderly conduct? Could not get these expunged because I plead guilty to these charges.
Well, the job application shouldn't have that question on there anymore, because there is a recent law preventing it. In any event, because NJ law defines "crimes" as violations of law that you could be sentenced to more than a year in prison, and anything else as an "offense", you can honestly and legally answer that you have never been convicted of a "crime". This is because disorderly persons offenses and petty disorderly persons offenses are not "crimes" in NJ. And if that is your only record you are eligible for an expungement now.See question
2 Friends put there money together to buy drugs. One friend takes the ride to pick up the drugs and returns back to get high. The next morning the one friend does the rest of heroin and overdoses and dies. Can the other friend be charged in relati...
Possibly, yes. "Distributes or dispenses" are the magic words under NJSA 2C:35-9. So whoever they get it from is at risk of being charged under that statute as a 1st degree.See question
What is an example of each one
DPs: Shoplifting or theft under $500. Possession of under 50 grams of marijuana.
PDPs: Disorderly conduct. Harassment.
She told us it was a disorderly persons offense but didn't give details
A "guilty charge" doesn't mean anything. She could have been charged with something, then pled or was found guilty of that charge or something lesser. But the term "guilty charge" doesn't exist in NJ criminal practice.See question
I got charged with interfering with transportation 2c:33-14a(1) i was told it was a.disorderly persons offense just want to find out thanks
Yes it is a disorderly persons offense as long as it doesn't cause damage over $500. Then it becomes an indictable offense.See question
i applied for pti for my 3rd degree agg assault charge is there a set time on how long it lasts i know it can be 1-3 years but i wanted to know if there was an exact time per charge
There is no set amount of time per charge. And actually, the court rule only says no more than 3 years, but has no floor. So theoretically, it could be one day, but since probation has to be at least one year, that's how PTI usually goes.See question
PTI is kind of like probation, but your case gets dismissed at the end if you do everything you're supposed to. If you get into PTI, then if your PTI is terminated for any reason, your plea offer from the prosecutor will usually be for probation.See question
My probation ended because I paid the restitution. I just found out that there is a judgment against me from 1994 for unpaid restitution. I can't locate my bank records from over twenty years ago. What do I do?
If the judgment is for the restitution and is solely out of the criminal charge, you should get proof of that from the probation office you were reporting to. They should be able to provide you with proof of it, and hopefully a satisfaction of the judgment. You might need to talk to a civil attorney about it.See question
