Criminal Mischief Charges for Juvenile Offender in Bergen County NJ Dismissed

Juvenile Defense Lawyers Bergen County NJ

With offices in Hackensack, New Jersey

Bergen County Superior CourtThe criminal defense lawyers at the Tormey Law Firm LLC recently represented a client facing criminal mischief charges as a juvenile offender in the Bergen County Superior Court located in Hackensack, New Jersey. The charges arose out of Wyckoff but all Juvenile charges must be handled in the Superior Court, Family Division in the county in which the offense allegedly occurred. Three young boys (around 10 years old) were all charged with spray painting some property and destroying it at a local friend’s home.

The case was originally diverted to a probation officer for potential resolution. If the defendant admitted wrongdoing then they would impose a short period of probation, community service, and restitution for the damaged property and the case would be over. If the client abided by all the conditions of probation then the case would be dismissed at the end. However, our client was innocent of the offense charged so he could not take responsibility for something he did not do. As a result, the case was sent to a hearing officer in Bergen County for a hearing. When we appeared for the hearing, the alleged victim failed to appear. Without the victim there to testify, the case was dismissed for lack of prosecution. This was a very satisfying result for our young client and his family.
