Frequently Asked Questions About Criminal Defense Strategies in South Jersey

What should I do if the police approach me or ask me questions about a crime? 

You should always be polite to the police and remain calm. However, you should never answer any questions without first speaking with an experienced criminal defense lawyer. Having a lawyer by your side is your right—and in no way makes you look guilty.

What are disorderly persons offenses and indictable offenses? 

In most states, crimes are classified as either felonies or misdemeanors based on the severity of the crime. In New Jersey, a felony is called an indictable offense, and a misdemeanor is called a disorderly person offense (or a petty disorderly person offense). The difference is based on the amount of jail time you can face if convicted. Indictable offenses are crimes for which more than six months of jail time may apply. Indictable offenses are prosecuted in the New Jersey Superior Court, while disorderly persons offenses are handled in the Municipal Courts.
