The first makes it a disorderly offense to possess marijuana and the second outlaws possession of drug paraphernalia- such as hypodermic needles and marijuana smoking pipes . Both are disorderly offenses.

I am sorry to know of your family and legal issues. The legal issues are very complicated and are serious so I strongly urge you to retain an attorney . His/her fee will not be cheap but necessary in my opinion. Good luck to you.
I work for a coffee delivery company where we are provided company vans. I mistakenly drove my van into an interstate where no commercial vehicles are allowed and received 2 tickets. One for driving in a forbidden interstate (Palisades Parkway) and the other for having the company’s advertisement... Read more »
More information would be helpful, but if your employer reported to the police that on that occasion you knowingly disobeyed company policy or instruction, then conceivably you’re personally responsible . You can not rely on the employer to defend you so retain independent counsel right away...Read more »
I tried filling for my spouse before but he was denied because he had a record at 21 yrs old of possession of marijuana. The embassy denied him and told him that he have to wait 7 to 10 years before he can file again so the time has passed and I want to file again. I'm currently receiving... Read more »

More information, such as of the relationship between the alleged victim and the alleged perpetrator and more would have to be known to give a firm answer. A critical factor in a prosecutor's decision to prosecute would be assessing how probable it is to prove such a very,very old accusation.

You have already given away any chance you might have had to defend so I would not advise talking with the private detective. You should retain a lawyer immediately to possibly avoid prosecution. Good luck.
Generally speaking short of habitual drunkenness, death by auto or some other serious felony, a traffic offense (which DUI is in NJ), a DUI conviction would not be admissible to challenge your credibility as a witness.
I got pulled over and the stated reason was "Your license plate lights are out." I replied that I wasn't aware and thanked her for letting me know. She comes back with a ticket for me. I go home and inspect to find that only one of the lights were out, not both. It seems unfair that... Read more »
Because we have no "right" to be warned of a traffic violation, I don't think a judge or prosecutor will agree that you're innocent on that basis. Pay the fine and costs and in the future perform periodic equipment checks on your vehicle. Good luck to you.
In the course of the stop she gave me 4 tickets, i did not have my license. She accused me of careless driving, improper passing, failure to show license and disregarding officer signal, is there a way to beat this without a lawyer, can i file a complaint against the officer?

With so many tickets and with serious potential consequences, you are best advised to consult and hire an attorney. Remember this: as worldly and as intelligent as you may be, as a non-lawyer you will be facing a judge who is a lawyer and a prosecutor who is a lawyer as well.
