Understanding federal criminal charges
Under the Constitution of the United States, the federal government does not have a general police power. That is why there is no federal speed limit and why different states have different criminal laws. Only certain crimes can be heard in a federal court. These crimes involve certain factors such as the crossing of state lines or the violation of federal statutes. Our firm provides federal criminal law defense services to clients accused of violations that fall under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) statutes, money laundering, mail fraud and Internet child pornography. Federal cases are heard in district courts. The District of New Jersey has courts in Camden, Newark and Trenton. Cases heard here can be appealed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit in Philadelphia. Our criminal law attorney is admitted to practice in these courts
Representing state criminal law defendants against all charges
New Jersey has an unusual way of classifying offenses. What you’d commonly think of as a felony, New Jersey simply calls a crime; it can be an indictable offense (which requires a Grand Jury to issue an indictment) or a nonindictable offense. Lesser charges, generally known as misdemeanors, are called disorderly persons offenses. Trial judges in New Jersey’s Superior Court system hear cases ranging from drug possession to murder. There is one Superior Court in each county. Municipal courts hear traffic violations cases, including DUI charges. Our firm represents clients in all New Jersey criminal law cases against a variety of charges stemming from:
- Drug crimes
- Juvenile offenses
- Probation & parole violations
- Sex crimes
- Theft crimes
- Violent crimes
- White collar crimes
- Weapons charges
Our legal team aggressively defends clients against all charges. We use all available evidence and procedures as we work to get your charges reduced or thrown out.
