Here is an example of a simple assault disorderly person criminal charge we handled for a client in the Elmwood Park Municipal Court.
The Domestic Violence lawyers at the Tormey Law Firm LLC with offices in Bergen County, Hackensack NJ recently represented a client who was facing a criminal charge for simple assault under N.J.S.A. 2C:12-1(a), a disorderly persons offense. This crime is punishable by up to six (6) months in the Bergen County Jail, a $1,000 fine, probation, and a permanent criminal charge on your record (which can be expunged in 3-5 years in certain cases). This alleged incident involved our client and his wife. Our client has no prior criminal history and there is no history of domestic violence between the parties.
When we appeared in court, there was very little evidence of any assault. In addition, the wife did not appear in court and without her cooperation the State could not prove the charges against our client. As a result, the court agreed to carry the case for a few months, and, as long as there were no other alleged domestic violence incidents between the parties, the charges will be dismissed. After the period of time elapsed, we appeared again in court and the charges were completely dismissed against our client. Then, he was able to file for an automatic expungement with the court as well to have the arrest removed from his record.
