Criminal Charges in New Jersey
Unlike other states, New Jersey classifies criminal offenses into three categories:
The most severe of these crimes are indictable offenses, where you can face at minimum one year in prison.
Within each offense, New Jersey then selects one of four degrees of severity of the crime. For example, if you were charged with a first-degree indictable crime, you could face up to 20 years in prison plus various fines. However, if you were charged with something such as shoplifting, you may be only facing a fourth-degree disorderly person offense which could be just a fine.
