Possession of Marijuana Under 50 Grams Lawyers Bergen County NJ
Wood Ridge Drug Charge Attorneys
A recent client hired The Tormey Law Firm after he was pulled over for a traffic violation and subsequently found to be in possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. These charges are punishable by up to 6 months in county jail if convicted, as well as fines up to $1,000 for each offense.
In addition to the onerous jail time and monetary fines, our client faced substantial additional penalties if he were convicted of either charge, due to the fact that he had open pending cases in other counties and towns in New Jersey. Any new conviction could have very serious consequences with his other cases, possibly resulting in prison time or probation.
After our client brought The Tormey Law Firm into the case, attorney Christopher Perry appeared with him in court, where Mr. Perry was able to successfully argue that the charges should be downgraded from disorderly persons offenses to a single violation of a town ordinance. This downgrade allowed our client to avoid having a disorderly persons conviction on his record, which would have affected his other pending cases in other courts.
