Legal Answers
51 Questions Answered
Q. Is it illegal in New Jersey to get 25 years for drug induced homicide? I’m asking because the law states the max is 20
A: Under New Jersey law, Strict Liability Drug Induced Death is a first degree crime, which ordinarily carries up to 20 years New Jersey State Prison. But a defendant who is extended term eligible would face 20 years to life. Therefore, a sentence of 25 years would not necessarily be illegal.
Q. Generally speaking. What will an expungement cost for a 20 year old Harassment charge I pled guilty too? Thanks
A: This is an excellent question. And I t seems to me the answer will require calling and meeting various attorneys to find out the answer.

One might ask about each attorney’s experience with expungements because this will presumably weigh in one’s decision to retain the attorney. Additionally, one might be able to get a sense of this by asking about the expungement process. Furthermore, meeting attorneys in person might be a good way to make this decision. Before meeting any attorneys, however, it would help for the prospective client to get his / her Criminal History from the State Police.

This is a great question, and finding the right attorney for the job will require some effort, which in the end will be worth it. ... Read More
Q. SWIM got a DUI after NJSP were dispatched for a med check and saw paraphanalia on his lap when asleep in wawa parkin lot
A: More information is required to know the totality of circumstances and to identify any defenses available to this person. A charge of DWI can be defensible, but the defenses turn on the facts of the individual cases. If this friend is unhappy with the legal advice provided by his present attorney, then contacting another attorney for a consultation and retaining a new attorney seem to be actions to take without further delay.
