What Happens When You Have a Criminal or Traffic Case in Bordentown NJ

With 2 miles of the New Jersey Turnpike running through Bordentown Township and traffic from U.S. Route 130 and U.S. Route 206 coming through the town, Bordentown Police make many arrests for DWI and motor vehicle offenses. Other common charges include theft from one of the many small shops and boutiques in downtown Bordentown. The police also make arrests for disorderly conduct, marijuana possession, criminal mischief, and a wide variety criminal offenses at the Bordentown train station and other local spots.

If you are charged with a crime in Bordentown, your case will be heard in either municipal court or superior court, depending on the type of offense you are charged with. Disorderly persons offenses and municipal ordinance violations are heard at the Bordentown Municipal Court before a municipal court judge. If you are charged with an indictable offense (a fourth, third, second, or first degree crime), your case will be heard at Burlington County Superior Court. Since a DWI is technically considered a traffic offense and not a criminal offense in New Jersey, drunk driving cases are usually handled in municipal court unless you are charged with an indictable criminal offense in connection with the same case. The penalties for a drunk driving violation are often far more severe than a standard traffic violation and could include mandatory jail time, so you are almost certainly going to want an experienced DWI lawyer representing you throughout the legal process. A knowledgeable lawyer can potentially challenge the evidence in your DWI case and help you avoid license suspension, a requirement to install an ignition interlock device on your car, and a minimum jail sentence if you already have a prior conviction for DUI on your record. The lawyers at our firm have handled countless criminal and DWI cases in and around Bordentown, and are familiar with the Bordentown Municipal Court and Burlington County Superior Court. If you have been arrested in the Township of Bordentown and are facing criminal charges or a traffic summons, we can help.
