Former County Prosecutors Who Have Served In Top Level Positions & Are Certified As Criminal Trial Attorneys Are Ready To Discuss The Crime You Are Facing At The Somerset County Superior Court
If you have been summoned to appear in Somerset County Superior Court in connection with a complaint for a criminal offense, you are most likely facing charges for an indictable felony, which may be classified as a first, second, third, or fourth degree crime. These offenses can range from robbery, to aggravated assault, to possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, and may entail penalties ranging from 18 months to life in New Jersey State Prison. Once these charges are filed, your case is transferred to the Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office for review, after which it may be downgraded, diverted, dismissed, or presented to a grand jury at Somerset County Superior Court for an indictment.
Your Pre-Indictment Conference is likely your first appearance in Superior Court, before the evidence is presented to a 23-person panel referred to as a Grand Jury that has the task of deciding if sufficient evidence exists to formally charge you. If they do so, your case will either be resolved through a negotiated plea agreement, enrollment in a diversionary program such as Pre-Trial Intervention, or a full trial where the jury ultimately decides your fate. In order to effectively navigate through the complex process necessary to resolve your legal matter, it is critical to identify and enlist an experienced legal advocate who can ensure that you are thoroughly protected. Understanding the legal avenues which may be available to you will allow you to make informed, confident decisions with your future in mind.
