Arrested for a First, Second, Third or Fourth Degree Crime in Edison Township
Although Edison Township would not be described as a high crime community, over one thousand individuals are arrested for indictable charges of the first, second, third and fourth degree almost every year. These offenses include not only the extreme like robbery and sexual assault but also fourth degree aggravated assault and third degree shoplifting in Edison. The municipal court in Edison lacks jurisdiction to preside over cases falling within this grading since you have a right to presentation of the charge to a grand jury which can only be empaneled at the Middlesex County Superior Court. The result is that all proceedings in an indictable crime case, with the possible exception of an initial arraignment, must occur at the county courthouse in New Brunswick NJ. These types of offenses typically carry the possibility of many years in prison and thousands of dollars in financial consequences and fines if you are convicted. Representation by a highly experienced criminal lawyer is always advised.
