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 harassment and
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 a 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..
