If you’ve been arrested for a crime which bears a “Presumption of non-incarceration,” you are fortunate in that your criminal matter is not very serious.
A presumption of non-incarceration simply means that if convicted, it is still “presumed” that you will be not be incarcerated, or given a prison sentence. Your criminal matter still needs to be handled correctly, but on a first offense, you’re probably not going to jail.
A charge type in which the party will probably go to jail bears a “presumption of incarceration“. All second degree crimes in New Jersey bear a presumption of incarceration.
No matter what your charge or it’s severity, focusing on your defense is a good idea. You don’t want to end up with a criminal record, and you don’t want to end up in jail.
