H. Scott Aalsberg Esq.'s answer Much more information would be needed to properly answer your question but either way if you have a gun charge your looking at serving 85% of the time sentenced for in jail we call this NERA and the chance of not doing jail in NJ for carrying a firearm in NJ is slim.
H. Scott Aalsberg Esq.'s answer You should report the accident to the police, the fact that the other person copied your drivers license is not big deal in all honesty, because most of that information is a public record anyway.
H. Scott Aalsberg Esq.'s answer You can oppose it for any reason, however township officials know that any project will create noise, traffic problems etc that effect residents, but deem it needed for improvement/modernization.
H. Scott Aalsberg Esq.'s answer I have to admit I never heard of a prime contractor in regards to real estate. Generally it is general contractor and subcontractor. Thus I agree with attorney Boyer's comments
H. Scott Aalsberg Esq.'s answer Of course a disorderly persons offense is just like any other crime, a complaint is based on information and belief. Just like in a murder the police generally are not present to see the killing nor do the police need to be present for a disorderly persons complaint. All the same rules apply. I suggest hiring a lawyer especially if they have video and witness information against you.
H. Scott Aalsberg Esq.'s answer Yes, scams happen all the time. I suggest you have your son set up a consultation with a lawyer as you have many questions here and obviously this will take some time and more information would be needed to answer these questions. Expect to pay that attorney for his time and advice.
H. Scott Aalsberg Esq.'s answer Yes you can probably get what you want, but remember if you lose the trial you have to be willing to accept the consequences of a guilty verdict which could be jail. Obviously we don't know anything about your case, BUT this is what every attorney must tell their clients prior to trial when an offer such as PTI is on the table.
H. Scott Aalsberg Esq.'s answer You would get an unlicensed driver ticket ticket which could lead to up to 60 days jail and 6 months loss of license when eligible to drive and a fine and is not good when it comes to USCIS.
H. Scott Aalsberg Esq.'s answer The answer is it depends for example do you have a license to own or carry the gun. Before an attorney could give you an answer to this question he would need to ask you several questions I suggest setting up a consultation with the lawyer if you need to know the law.
H. Scott Aalsberg Esq.'s answer You need to wait 90 days and then if you don't get the money back you will need to file a motion and win it to get your money back, but it does sound like you have a good defense, but you will need more than just the receipt to win it.
H. Scott Aalsberg Esq.'s answer A traffic ticket that will go on your MVC record. That being said it called a quasi criminal offense and if an accident occurred it can come with criminal charges also. If charge with any DWI make sure you get a good lawyer if you want a chance to win.
H. Scott Aalsberg Esq.'s answer Drug Court is dicreatiionary so almost anyone the judge or prosecutor wants can get in pursuant to the guidelines rules. Yes some attorney simply don't do appeals, all can but some of us don't like myself.
H. Scott Aalsberg Esq.'s answer We are not supposed to give specific legal advise on this site on what to do, but you can setup an in office consultation with an experienced lawyer. What I will say is that arguments exist on both sides on whether or whether not to pay it. Either way I would contact the court in which the store was in to see if they filed a criminal complaint for shoplifting against you.
