Attorney needed for aggravated assault charge in Morris County? We can help.

Travis Tormey, an experienced criminal defense attorney and the founding partner of the Tormey Law Firm, recently defended a client against charges of third degree aggravated assault with a weapon in Morris County, New Jersey. The very serious criminal charges stemmed from an alleged domestic violence incident at a Florham Park NJ residence.

The kind of aggravated assault charges filed against the client are ordinarily classified as an indictable, felony-level offense in New Jersey and are adjudicated in superior court. As a result, the case involving the client was transferred from Florham Park Municipal Court to Morris County Superior Court in Morristown, New Jersey. The potential penalties in the case were severe: a conviction could have resulted in a sentence of 3-5 years in NJ State Prison, as well as a mandatory minimum term of incarceration under the No Early Release Act (NERA).

The client was a 70-year-old woman who had been married to her husband for more than forty years and who had two adult children. Moreover, she had never been arrested or convicted of any criminal offense. She was arrested in connection with this case after she had a minor disagreement with her husband at their home in Florham Park NJ. The fight began with the husband calling the client names, followed by the client bopping him on the head with the butt end of a small kitchen knife.

When the client was placed under arrest and charged with third degree aggravated assault, Travis Tormey got involved and immediately went to work building a strong defense on behalf of the client. Mr. Tormey spoke with Morris County prosecutors and persuaded them to reduce the charges from a felony to a disorderly persons offense. Since the client was now charged with a lesser offense of simple assault, the case was sent back to Florham Park Municipal Court.

This was crucial as the client was facing a 3rd degree felony charge punishable by 3-5 years in prison. Now, since it was downgraded to simple assault, she is now facing a misdemeanor assault with a maximum of 6 months in the Morris County jail if she was convicted.

Ultimately, the Florham Park prosecutor elected to dismiss the charges entirely because there were no witnesses willing to testify at trial. Thanks to Travis Tormey and his diligent work, the client was able to avoid criminal penalties and keep her permanent record clear of a criminal conviction. This was a great outcome for our client and a huge win for the Tormey Law Firm.
