Are New Jersey's shoplifting laws more severe than other states?

Shoplifting laws in New Jersey factor the value of the allegedly stolen item into the punishment. Items of little value might only amount to a misdemeanor charge. More valuable items, however, may result in more serious charges. For example, if the stolen item is valued over $75,000, the charge might be classified as a second degree defense, punishable by up to ten years in prison and penalties of up to $150,000.

Does an early release or bail impact one's criminal defense?

The repercussions of a criminal conviction can be far reaching. In a recent example, a New Jersey man discovered that the law does not permit him to own guns because of his wife’s criminal charge relating to domestic violence allegations.

At first thought, bail seems like a great provision for those who are accused of a crime. "All you have to do is pay some money and you get out of jail? What's not to like?" But, of course, if you extend that first thought to a second, third, or fourth thought, the flaws of the bail system will immediately become clear.
