New Jersey man facing drug charges for heroin found in wallet

Criminal cases involving drug charges can arise in some of the most unusual situations. For instance, one New Jersey man recently popped up on police radar after he allegedly left his wallet in the bathroom of a gas station in Pennsylvania. Though this may seem like a perfectly innocent situation, the wallet was said to have several individually wrapped bundles of heroin inside of it.

Coming up with a defense plan for sexual assault charges

Any of our New Jersey readers who have seen previous posts here know that planning a criminal defense strategy when it comes to sex crimes charges can be very difficult. In fact, when someone is facing these types of charges, any New Jersey criminal defense attorney would likely inform them that they have three basic defense options to present, if they are planning to contest the charges instead of seeking a plea agreement.

What's the difference between a felony and a misdemeanor?

Every state in the country has a classification system set in state law for the range of criminal offenses. Criminal offenses are categorized from the least serious, such as infractions or traffic offenses, up to misdemeanors - something like a drunk driving charge - all the way up to felony level offenses, like burglary or armed robbery. But, not everyone who is arrested for a criminal offense in New Jersey knows the difference between misdemeanors and felony level offenses.

New Jersey man charged with drug crimes after traffic stop

Most New Jersey residents drive. Most pay attention, and obey the rules of the road while driving. These residents also normally avoid car accidents and getting pulled over by the police because of their ability to drive the way we are supposed to drive. However, even a driver who makes a point to be obedient to the rules of the road at all times can make a mistake. For instance, many New Jersey residents have been pulled over for something that is seemingly small, like the failure to wear a seatbelt or a broken taillight on their car. In most instances, the result is a small fine and not much else. Nonetheless, our readers may not know that small infractions like this commonly lead to much bigger problems for some drivers.
