Millburn NJ First Degree, Second Degree, Third Degree & Fourth Degree Indictable Crimes
If someone is arrested for a felony offense like burglary, possession of heroin, or some other first-fourth degree crime, the case is referred to the Essex County Superior Court. The case may thereafter be listed for Remand Court, Central Judicial Processing or for formal indictment. In many instances, securing representation quickly after the arrest helps to insure that an accused has the best chance for a remand/downgrade of an indictable offense. Taking advantage of this opportunity is very important as a conviction results in a felony record, significant fines and the a potential jail term of 18 month for a fourth degree, 5 years for a third degree, 10 years for a second degree and 20 years for a first degree crime.
Experienced & Skilled Lawyers To Fight Your Millburn Criminal Charge
In our experience, there are many defense attorneys that solicit potential clients on the internet and elsewhere but a limited number that truly have the qualifications to back up their claims. Sometimes its the noticeable absence of their date of licensing to practice law, other times its an obvious situation where the individual is a jack of all trades. It is therefore important that you take a close look at the qualifications of those lawyers you are considering.
