Handling Marijuana, Drug Paraphernalia Cases in Trenton, New Jersey

Second Degree Marijuana Distribution Attorneys NJ

Second Degree Marijuana Distribution Attorneys NJ

Nationwide, various states and the District of Columbia have decriminalized or legalized recreational marijuana. However, New Jersey continues to prohibit the possession of the plant or any of its derivatives. Possession of larger amounts of marijuana can subject a person to second degree charges, punishable by up to 10 years in prison, fines of up to $150,000, and a driver’s license suspension of 6 months up to 2 years.

In light of the serious penalties involved for possession of even a tiny amount of marijuana, it is absolutely vital that a person charged with these offenses obtain the representation of a great criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible.

A recent client of the Tormey Law Firm was travelling through the state on the way to his home in Washington D.C. when he was stopped for a traffic violation. The officers who stopped him ended finding a rather large quantity of marijuana and edible items containing THC inside the vehicle. Although our client could legally possess and use the items he possessed in Washington D.C., the same items led to his being charged with second degree possession of a controlled dangerous substance in New Jersey.

After he retained our firm, we assisted our client in applying for a program for first-time offenders known as Pre-Trial Intervention, or “PTI” for short. Through participation in PTI, a person is able to have their charges ultimately dismissed so long as they stay out of trouble and abide by the rules and conditions of the program. PTI is a discretionary program, meaning that a prosecutor may object to a defendant’s entry into the program based on a number of different factors. In most cases that involve second degree charges, the prosecutor will object to entry based on the facts and circumstances surrounding the offense and the seriousness of the charges.

In this case, attorneys from the Tormey Law Firm were successful in convincing the PTI program and the prosecutor to allow our client to participate in the program. Additionally, he will be able to be terminated from the program successfully and have his case dismissed after only half of his PTI term so long as he abides by the terms of the program. In the end, our client will have gone from facing upwards of 10 years in prison to having his case dismissed.
