Joint Municipal Court of Hazlet, Keyport and Matawan
If you have been charged with a Disorderly Persons Criminal offense, or a Petty Disorderly Persons offense, often referred to in other states as a misdemeanor, you need an experienced defense attorney to effectively guide you through the municipal court process. Although charges handled in municipal courts are referred to as “Disorderly Persons Offenses,” they are still criminal offenses with lasting consequences if you are convicted.
A person convicted of a disorderly persons offense, for example, can be sentenced up to 6 months in jail and up to 30 days for a petty disorderly persons offense. In addition, the municipal court judge can impose heavy fines, can take away your driving privileges, or both.
A conviction for any disorderly persons offense means that you would have a criminal record which could effect employment and educational opportunities.
