Mahwah Aggravated Assault on a Police Officer Charges

Aggravated Assault on Police, Resisting Arrest Lawyer Mahwah NJ

Assault on Police Officer Mahwah NJOur lawyers recently represented a client charged with aggravated assault on a police officer, resisting arrest, and obstructing the administration of law (a disorderly persons offense) in Mahwah, New Jersey. Our client was a college student at Ramapo College with no prior criminal record. He was facing a felony charge, years in state prison, and multiple criminal charges on his permanent record if convicted of these offenses.

Our client allegedly obstructed the passage of a law enforcement vehicle while the officer was on his way to an emergency, then had words with the officer and got into a scuffle with the officer when refusing to provide his identification. Based on these facts, we were able to convince the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office to downgrade the felony charges and remand the case back to the Mahwah Municipal Court. Then, after conferencing the case with the prosecutor and the police officer, Mr. Tormey negotiated a plea to disorderly conduct, a petty disorderly persons offense, which resulted in a fine, no probation and no jail. This minor charge can be expunged from our client’s record after five (5) years from the date of the plea, meaning he can move forward with his life unimpeded by a criminal record. Needless to say, our client was extremely pleased with the results produced by our law firm.
