Are you a first-time offender? By filing for a pretrial intervention in the State of New Jersey, you could avoid a criminal conviction. If you have been pulled over for drunk driving or you face drug possession charges stemming from the possession of paraphernalia, you may be eligible for the PTI (PreTrial Intervention) program. Do not let one mistake haunt you for years to come; we can help you explore all options for a successful resolution.
Are you facing a New Jersey State Prison term? You may qualify for the Intensive Supervision Propgram (ISP). By filing for ISP on the day that you are sentenced, you could appear before a resentecing panel in as little as four months. The program is, as the title suggests, Intensive. If accepted into ISP, you can avoid serving a term of State Prison.
If you have ever been arrested, you have a criminal record. It does not matter whether or not you were convicted. Your criminal record could affect your ability to get a job or a loan. If you get an expungement, your arrest or conviction will be taken off of your permanent record. An experienced lawyer can help you determine whether or not you will qualify under New Jersey law.
Criminal charges can haunt you for the rest of your life, but a good defense can make all the difference. At the Newark Law Offices of Kevin Crawford Orr, we can help you make sure your rights are protected in court. Contact us today to find out more about your options.
