Tormey Law Firm Successfully Contests Disorderly Conduct, Trespassing Charges in East Rutherford, NJ
Need a lawyer for a disorderly conduct charge in East Rutherford? We can help.
The Tormey Law Firm recently defended a client against criminal charges for walking onto the field at MetLife Stadium after a New York Jets football game. MetLife Stadium is located in East Rutherford, New Jersey and is home to two NFL teams: the New York Jets and the New York Giants. The client went onto the field shortly after the football contest ended and removed a towel from a team bin.
Although the client had a field pass permitting her to be on the MetLife field, she preemptively entered the field before she was allowed to do so. This resulted in law enforcement detaining her and subsequently charging her with disorderly conduct and defiant trespassing. The client also received a citation for a municipal ordinance for creating a disturbance at the East Rutherford stadium.
Improper, Tumultuous Behavior at Metlife Stadium
The client needed an aggressive criminal defense lawyer on her side because the charges were serious. As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:33-2, a person who engaged in tumultuous behavior with purpose to cause public inconvenience can be charged with a petty disorderly persons offense and potentially be sentenced to as many as 90 days in the local county jail.
After being arrested at MetLife Stadium, the client called Travis J. Tormey. Mr. Tormey spoke with the East Rutherford prosecutor and emphasized the fact that his client had permission to be on the field. Additionally, Mr. Tormey noted that his client did not have a prior criminal record. Mr. Tormey was able to work out a favorable plea agreement for the client, with prosecutors agreeing to drop the criminal charges and the client entering a guilty plea on the less serious municipal ordinance violation.
Thanks to Travis J. Tormey, the client will not end up with a criminal record. Instead, she merely had to pay a small fine. The outcome of this case was a tremendous victory for the Tormey Law Firm and a fantastic result for the client.
