Q: I was recently charged with the bad check statute 2C: 21-5 in Glassboro NJ. What are the likely outcomes? First offense.
I am 21 years old graduating with a 3.8 gpa from Rowan University with a very bright future. I have no prior charges and plenty of professional contacts that can vouge for my character. It would fall under a 3rd degree bad check offense. How likey is this case dismissed? PTI?
A: More information is needed but dismissals are rare in Superior Court. With a good lawyer you up your chances but still you need some luck and the right facts.
It would be rare that the case is dismissed in superior court. The facts of your case will be a heavy factor in whether you are granted PTI. Depending on whether you have had your first appearance the charges may have been downgraded to a dp offense.
