When New Jersey residents are charged with crimes, they might be concerned that if they are convicted, that criminal record will be around for years to haunt them. It might seem far-fetched, but in some instances, however, this might not apply because a charge is simply forgotten about. That doesn't mean, however, that such charges will go away forever.
Sometimes, New Jersey residents can find themselves in trouble with the law stemming from charges that come about from unrelated incidents. This can catch people off guard; if police are investigating something unrelated to any kind of drug offenses, but then come across something that piques their suspicion, people might be less prepared to offer a defense.
New Jersey residents know that prosecutors take drug crimes with the utmost seriousness. This includes, but is certainly not limited to, drug charges regarding heroin. One man from the Bronx finds himself in trouble after being arrested at Newark Liberty International Airport in regard to a bag of heroin.
Being charged with burglary and theft is not something to be taken lightly. It doesn't matter if there doesn't seem to be a victim in the case; funds that have been received through apparently illicit means are cause enough for charges to be filed. This is what one many in North Jersey is finding out regarding an alleged property rental scam in Linden.
