The Tormey Law Firm recently represented a client who was charged with Possession of Marijuana under N.J.S.A. 2C:35-10(a) and Drug Paraphernalia under N.J.S.A. 2C:36-2 in the Midland Park Municipal Court in Bergen County. She was stopped for a minor motor vehicle violation and a subsequent search of her car revealed a small amount of marijuana. If convicted on these disorderly persons charges (misdemeanor), our client could have faced up to 6 months in the Bergen county jail, as well as thousands of dollars in fines and other penalties including probation. She would also have had a Disorderly Persons conviction on her criminal history for a minimum of 3 years before being eligible to expunge the conviction from her record. In addition, if convicted of a drug charge in the State of NJ, you are supposed to lose your driving privileges for six (6) months to two (2) years.
Through careful use of the evidentiary rules and assertion of our client’s constitutional rights, attorney Christopher Perry was able to successfully petition the Court to dismiss the criminal charges outright, saving our client the possibility of jail time, financial penalties, or having any conviction on her criminal history. Additionally, she is eligible to have the record of her arrest expunged from her record right away, without the need for any waiting period. The expungement process takes about three (3) to four (4) months on average and the arrest record can be removed from her record. This is important for background checks for work, school, professional licenses, traveling in and out of the country, immigration status, etc.
