FAQ: Can I Post Bail in New Jersey?

Just a few years ago, New Jersey reformed its bail system. You no longer pay to post bail in New Jersey. The new system is supposed to increase fairness, especially because many people failed to post bail due to financial hardships. Now, the state can hold people in jail only if they create a danger to the community or present an unacceptable flight risk.

FAQ: How Will My Record Impact My Sentence?

If the state convicted you of previous crimes in the past, you might face more severe consequences first subsequent conviction. Your criminal history is just one of several potential aggravating circumstances. Some other factors that might negatively influence your sentence include, the risk – if the court feels that it is highly likely that you will commit another crime – and the severity of the harm that any victims suffered.

While a past crime may serve as an aggravating factor, there are also mitigating circumstances that may reduce sentencing terms. For instance, if you participate in community service, compensate victims, display an attitude that suggests you will probably not commit another crime, acted under provocation, and/or are willing to cooperate with law enforcement, the court might consider a less stringent sentence.
