Presumption of Incarceration

If you’ve been arrested for a crime which bears a “Presumption of Incarceration,” you are unfortunately facing some bad news.

A presumption of incarceration simply means that if convicted, it is “presumed” that you will be incarcerated, or given a prison sentence. Obviously, everyone is considered innocent until proven guilty, but it is a good idea to understand exactly what you’re facing when making decisions that pertain to your trial.

Most crimes in New Jersey bear some form of prison sentence.  Even disorderly conduct charges can be punished with jail-time.  Even though a prison sentence is available in almost all crimes, it’s not necessarily presumed that a guilty party will actually go to jail.  A charge type in which the party will probably not go to jail bears a “presumption of non-incarceration“.

Presumptions of incarceration usually pertain to 2nd and 3rd degree crimes, and most highly violent crimes.  No matter what your charge or it’s severity, focusing on your defense is a good idea.
