Essex County NJ Aggravated Assault Charges Dismissed

Travis J. Tormey and Alissa D. Hascup of the Tormey Law Firm recently represented a client who was charged with aggravated assault, a third degree indictable (felony) level offense, arising out of East Orange, New Jersey. Because it was a felony level case, the charges were sent to the Essex County Superior Court in Newark, New Jersey for disposition. The charges stemmed from an alleged domestic violence incident between our client and his wife.

The wife was the only witness to the alleged offense and she refused to testify against him in court. Thus, our criminal defense lawyers were able to convince the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office to downgrade the charge to simple assault (a disorderly persons offense) and remand the case back to the East Orange Municipal Court. Then, in East Orange, the State required our client complete eight (8) anger management sessions and that there be no other incidents between the parties for sixty (60) days. At the end of the sixty days, the charges were dismissed completely against our client.

The criminal defense attorneys at The Tormey Law Firm defend clients charged with eluding in Bergen, Morris, Passaic, and Essex Counties in NJ. Call (201)-330-4979.
