Terroristic Threats Charges in NJ

Do you need an attorney for a terroristic threats case in Bergen County? Contact us now.

Travis J. Tormey of the Tormey Law Firm LLC recently represented clients who were charged with terroristic threats and harassment arising out of Hackensack, New Jersey. Our firm was referred this case by a Municipal Prosecutor in Passaic County who recommended to the clients that they hire our firm to defend them against these criminal charges.

The circumstances of these charges were very unusual. Our clients were a mother and son from Bergen County who had lost another member of their family (their son and brother, respectively) to a heroin overdose recently. The deceased had been sold heroin by a well-known drug dealer from Bergen County who is now being prosecuted for those drug sales as well as for the drug induced death of the deceased young man. This case has been pending at the Superior Court in Bergen County for over a year now. So, essentially, our clients are the family of the young man who was killed by the drug dealer’s heroin. Now, during one of the court proceedings in Bergen County, our clients had a verbal altercation with the drug dealer’s family where certain names were called and alleged threats were made. The drug dealer’s family members turned around and filed charges against our client’s for harassment and terroristic threats.

Felony Terroristic Threats Charges Downgraded and Remanded Back to Municipal Court

Our clients have never been charged with any prior offenses and have completely clean records. The terroristic threats charge, a felony, was quickly reviewed by the Bergen County Prosecutor’s office and downgraded back to Municipal Court as a misdemeanor, known as a disorderly persons charge. Then, our Hackensack NJ criminal defense attorneys appeared in Municipal Court and negotiated a plea agreement with the Municipal Prosecutor. The mother’s harassment charge was dismissed completely and the son’s harassment charge (which had been downgraded from a felony terroristic threats offense) was amended to a local ordinance violation which resulted in a fine and no criminal record. The drug dealer’s family members objected to this plea arrangement but the Judge and prosecutor disregarded that objection and the case was resolved.

Can I expunge the arrest or ordinance violation?

The mother’s case was completely dismissed so the charges are eligible for an automatic expungement immediately. This is merely to expunge the arrest off of her record. The son, on the other hand, plead to a municipal ordinance violation which results in no criminal record. However, under NJ law, he has to wait two (2) years and then he can expunge the arrest off of his record.
