Theft by deception charge, Middlesex County, NJ. Thx for your answer. However, it is actually being heard in Municpal Court, NOT Superior Court. The charge is for the Amt. Stated. Why is it being heard in Municipal Court?
A very big difference in Municipal Court you're only subject up to 180 days in jail and up to a thousand-dollar fine. However the amount taken must have been under $200 to be in Municipal Court. Amounts taken over $200 and up to $500 is in Superior Court and subjects the offender to up to 18...Read more »
if i have a party in my basement and there’s alcohol there but my parents don’t know about it and we end up getting caught by police or another family can my parents be charged with anything even if they didn’t know
Yes you can file charges. There is a long list of possible criminal charges that can be filed against both the 19 year old and your ex-wife. The sooner you take action the less danger your daughter will be in. Good luck.
A woman that I know had stolen my credit card and used it at multiple different stores (11-13 stores). I have more then enough evidence: messages of her sending my card information to another women, email receipts of food deliveries that were sent to the apartment that she was staying at, also...

In any case the outcome is always the same until it comes out of the judges mouth that no one knows. Thus it can be guilty or not guilty. Based on what you have presented it sounds like it would definitely be a guilty
I've been having trouble with her for a while. My documents went missing for at least 2 weeks from where my father and I usually put them. My father ask my stepmother if she knows anything about it and she said no but sent him looking directly where they were in her room. My passport and social... Read more »

Of course although you've told us what you are charged with, you have not given us the violation numbers but in general you'd be at least looking at a third degree crime which can carry 3 to 5 years in jail. This is just the penalty foremost crack charges. Do you need a lawyer that is up to you...Read more »

I was in a vehicle with 3 others but I was not the driver. The bottle was not consumed in the vehicle or even opened in the vehicle, it was in a backpack. I claimed the bottle because it was in my bag. However, no one in the vehicle was breathalyzed, not even the driver. She also did not receive... Read more »
By you claiming the back pack the law will then charge you with whatever is in it. They could of still charged everyone in the car, but most police try to be fair and charge the person who admits to the crime/offense. As for the loss of license for 6 months it is mandatory. That being said if I...Read more »
Maybe that's your problem they didn't deliver on their promises because attorneys are not supposed to promise you any result other than that they will do their best and show up to court on time. An attorney can tell you their past success rate with similar cases, they can tell you what they've done...Read more »
Not to my knowledge it's done a lot of the time at the sentencing hearing but it appears that that is already over. You really need to ask his attorney on what you should do that's what you paid him for.
The person I was with placed the items unknown to me. I would like to know if I will be charged for shoplifting even though I paid for the items I purchased which the store kept despite my paying for the items I purchased. Under this offence will I be held liable for shoplifting even though I did... Read more »
If you acted in concert with another which is what it appears to be by your question yes, you don't need to take anything to be charged. But can you be convicted is the real question and much more information would need to be known to answer that question. I suggest that you setup one of the free...Read more »
I know this person. He comes from a family of law enforcement and he himself, is a CO. He sent me a picture and they looked good so it didnt cross my mind that could be fake nor would I think he would sell me fake shoes. After I inspected the shoes I realized they were fake and asked where he got... Read more »
It depends on the degree of the charges which you have not indicated, but generally 2nd degree carries 5 to 10 years in jail with a presumption of incarceration even for first time offenders. For third degree charges your looking at 3 to 5 years and for 4th degree (doubt your looking at that low)...Read more »
