Non-Indictable Criminal Offenses in Middesex County

Municipal Court Offenses

Non-indictable criminal charges, typically disorderly persons offenses, and ordinance violations are handled in Municipal Court. While a crime of this nature is categorized as a misdemeanor, we recommend that individuals consult an attorney when they have been the subject of an arrest or charge for one of these offenses as the penalties can be serious. The disorderly persons offenses handling in Monmouth County Municipal Courts include the following:

  • disorderly conduct
  • resisting arrest
  • issuing a bad check
  • simple assault
  • petty harassment
  • criminal mischief
  • possession of less than 50 grams of marijuana
  • possession of drug paraphernalia
  • trespass
  • shoplifting
  • other petty disorderly persons offenses

While a conviction for a charge of this nature typically involves a misdemeanor, a finding of guilt can carry up to six (6) months of jail. It is always wise in our judgment to consult an attorney when you are the subject of a criminal complaint in Municipal Court.
