Criminal Offenses in New Jersey

New Jersey classifies criminal offenses through a system not used by many other states. Offenses are categorized into two distinct classes, with the main difference being the level of punishment allotted for each. The categories are as follows:

  • Disorderly person offenses – Similar to misdemeanors and have less severe punishments.
  • Indictable crimes – Similar to felonies, and hold severe punishments of at least 1 year of jail time.

There are four degrees of severity for every criminal offense in New Jersey. For example, a fourth-degree charge for petty theft may lead to a light fine. A first-degree indictable offense like murder, on the other hand, could result in many years of prison and up to life imprisonment.


DUI/DWI Charges in New Jersey

You may be charged with drunk driving if you are found operating a motor vehicle or boat with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08 percent or higher. The state takes DWI charges very seriously, and even a first offense could lead to severe punishments, such as:

  • Jail time of up to 30 days
  • Hefty fines and legal fees
  • Surcharges
  • Increased insurance rates
  • Driver’s license suspension
  • Up to 5 points on your license
  • Installation of ignition interlock on your vehicle

New Jersey does not allow plea bargains for DWI charges. If your case goes to court, your attorney must win your case or get the charges thrown out.
