About Washington Township, NJ
Washington Township is located in Gloucester County, New Jersey. It was incorporated in 1836 from portions of Deptford Township. Washington Township was originally settled by members of the Collins, Turner, Hurff, Heritage, Morgan, and Bell families, who lend their names to many buildings and landmarks throughout the township. Washington Township was named for George Washington, and is one of more than 10 communities in New Jersey named for Washington. Washington Township moved to the newly-created Camden County in 1844; it, along with the portions that were taken to create Monroe Township in 1859, were moved back to Gloucester County in 1871. In 2008, Money Magazine ranked Washington Township 58th on its list of the 100 best places to live in America.
Frequently Asked Questions about Washington Township, NJ Criminal Defense
Although many people may believe that criminal charges are resolved by a trial resulting in a jury verdict, the reality is that most criminal cases are resolved before trial. Many criminal cases are resolved through plea agreement, in which the defendant agrees to plead guilty to certain charges in exchange for the prosecution recommending a sentence that is generally more favorable than the defendant would have likely received if convicted at trial. In certain circumstances, it may be possible to obtain an alternative disposition of one’s criminal charges, such as through drug court. Finally, it may be possible to have charges dismissed if you can demonstrate that the prosecution has insufficient evidence to establish probable cause.
Unfortunately, criminal records are permanent; once you are convicted of a crime, you will have a criminal record for the rest of your life. However, under New Jersey law it is possible to seek expungement of arrest and conviction records for certain kinds of offenses. If your criminal records are expunged, they are unavailable in many circumstances, such as in employment or housing applications; however, they may still be available to law enforcement and court officials in certain circumstances. More serious criminal offenses, such as sex crimes or violent offenses, are ineligible for expungement.
