Assault: Assault refers to a verbal or physical threat of violence. Assault does
not necessarily involve actual injury or physical harm. There are several
kinds of assault: simple, gang activity, aggravated, domestic, and sexual.
Child Endangerment: New Jersey's child endangerment statute encompasses all laws related
to the possession, making, and distribution of child pornography. If you
have been accused, contact my firm today.
Conspiracy: When two or more people plan to commit a wrongful or illegal act, it is
considered the crime of conspiracy. An attempt to commit conspiracy, or
a conspiracy crime is often graded at the same level as the object of
the conspiracy itself, meaning the person can face the same charges even
if the crime was never carried out.
Domestic Violence: Domestic violence refers to violent acts committed against members of
one's family or household, and may involve physical violence, sexual
abuse, emotional abuse, economic abuse, or other offenses.
Drug Crimes: Drug crimes involve possession, manufacturing, and distribution of controlled
substances and illicit drugs. In order to be convicted of possessing drugs
with the intent of selling them, prosecution must present considerable
evidence against you.
DWI: Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a crime in all fifty
states. Depending on the circumstances surrounding the arrest, a DWI may
be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony.
Expungement: In short, an expungement erases any criminal conviction from your past
record, giving you the opportunity start with a clean slate. Legally speaking,
an expungement seals any record of arrest or conviction from the eyes
of the law.
Juvenile Crimes: Juvenile crimes are similar to crimes committed by adults; however, the
court process is very different, though the defendants can still face
Kidnapping: The crime of kidnapping involves taking someone or detaining them without
their consent. Under New Jersey law, a person can be sentenced to 15 to
30 years in prison if convicted of kidnapping another person.
Manslaughter: Manslaughter refers to the unlawful killing of another human being. Unlike
murder, manslaughter charges may be brought against individuals who did
not necessarily intend to kill someone, and manslaughter is not necessarily
Murder: Murder refers to the unlawful killing of another human with malicious
intent and premedication. Murder and manslaughter are both considered
homicide, but murder carries more severe penalties.
Sex Crimes: "Sex crime" is a generic term referring to any number of sex-related
criminal offenses including rape, child pornography, and prostitution.
Theft Crimes: Theft is broad term that refers to any number of offense involving the
intentional procurement of someone else's' property. Theft may
include larceny, robbery, burglary, wire fraud, identity theft, forgery,
welfare fraud, embezzlements, or other crimes.
Traffic Offenses: These offenses range in severity and include simple infractions (running
a red light) and serious crimes (driving under the influence of alcohol
or drugs.) Traffic offenses may result in a simple traffic ticket, fines,
probation, license revocation or incarceration.
Weapon Charges: Weapons charges include a variety of crimes, such as illegal possession
of a weapon, arms trafficking, and illegal transportation of weapons.
In New Jersey, weapons charges carry strict penalties and law enforcement
takes weapons charges very seriously.
White Collar Crimes: White collar crimes include embezzlement, money laundering, fraud, identity
theft, computer crimes and a variety of other financial offenses.
