Frequently Asked Questions About New Jersey Criminal Law

FAQ: What should I do if I have been arrested on criminal charges in New Jersey?  

Immediately after you discover you are under investigation, contact a criminal defense attorney. Alternatively, if you have already been arrested, politely remain silent and ask to speak to a lawyer. As tempting as it may be to defend yourself, it is far better to remain silent even if you are certain that you are innocent or that there has been a mistake. Legally, the police must stop interrogating you once you request to speak to a lawyer. In far too many cases, people make the mistake of talking to the police, only to have their innocent words turned against them by the prosecution at a later stage. Because every criminal case is unique, it is always in your best interest to speak to an experienced criminal defense lawyer who is on your side before telling your side to the police.

FAQ: Are there any alternatives to conviction if I have been arrested for committing a crime in New Jersey?  

Yes.  For certain non-violent first offenders, New Jersey offers several alternatives to conviction.  These are known as diversionary programs, and may include conditional discharge, conditional dismissal or pre-trial intervention.  All of these options will include conditions that you must abide by in order to successfully complete the program but can, in some cases, present viable alternatives to formal trial and conviction.
