For Your Information:
- The Municipal Courts in New Jersey have jurisdiction over motor vehicle violations and disorderly persons offenses. There are new laws about license forfeiture and the interlock device to avoid driving suspension in DUI cases. Traffic offenses heard in the municipal court are speeding (NJSA 39:4-98), Careless Driving (NJSA. 39:4-97), Driving While Suspended or Revoked (NJSA 39:3-40) and Driving While Intoxicated or DUI in violation of N.J.S.A. 39:4-50 , Reckless Driving (NJSA 39:4-96), Leaving the Scene of an Accident (NJSA 39:4-129) and Driving without Insurance (NJSA 39:6B-2). All traffic offenses carry potentially serious penalties. Heavy fines, loss of license, insurance premium surcharges and motor vehicle points are common. In some instances, county jail time can be imposed. There are many defenses to most traffic tickets, but these require an attorney with extensive experience in the municipal courts.
- A conviction for a disorderly persons offense such as harassment (NJSA 2C:33-4), disorderly conduct, shoplifting, and simple assault, can result in a criminal record, fines and jail time. The maximum penalty for a disorderly persons conviction is $1000 and a 6 month jail time.
- If you or your loved one is convicted of underage gambling the penalty is a disorderly persons offense which is a criminal charge that becomes part of your criminal record. A conviction for underage gambling in a casino in Atlantic City will also result in a fine of between $500 and $1000 and the individual's driver's license will be suspended for six months. If the individual is under 17 and has not yet obtained a driver's license, the issuance of that person's driver's license will be postponed for six months. If a parent or guardian allows an underage individual to gamble, that person can be charged with a disorderly persons offense.
