Crime of the First, Second, Third or Fourth Degree in Metuchen
Offenses issued in the Borough of Metuchen certainly are not limited to municipal court matters. The Metuchen Police Department files indictable charges of the first degree, second degree, third degree and fourth degree as well. A crime falling within one of these grades must be referred to the Middlesex County Superior Court for resolution since the local court lacks jurisdiction. Common third degree and other violations that must be sent to the county courthouse include possession of cocaine, aggravated assault, robbery and distribution of CDS, including heroin. If you were arrested for an offense within this category, it is crucial that you hire the best lawyer you can find as a conviction can result in years in state prison, tens of thousands in fines, and other significant penalties.
