As New Jersey criminal defense attorney, I always have interesting cases,
good stories to tell.
I recently represented a woman charged with
simple assault and
Parsippany-Troy Hills Municipal Court. My client is going through a divorce. She was driving down the highway
and spied her husband's girlfriend driving next to her IN HER CAR!
The husband had purchased the vehicle for my client/his wife and now it
was being driven by his new girlfriend. This did not sit well with my
client, who promptly gave the girlfriend a well-known finger gesture and
proceeded to drive around and behind the woman for the next 20 miles.
The girlfriend drove to the Parsippany Police Department and ran inside
to file a complaint against my client for
simple assault. I was able to secure a "administrative carry" for the client.
This means that the case is essentially postponed for 60 days. So long
as there are no new incidents between the pair, the case will be dismissed
at the end of the 60-day period. We can then immediately proceed with an
expungement to erase this case from the client's record..
