Many of the main roads in Roselle Park were once believed to be Native American Trails that later became colonial roads when the European settlers took over the land. Once travelled by men on foot, and later carriage, these roads are now occupied by a constant influx of traffic, and with all this activity, traffic violations are bound to occur.

Roselle Park Municipal Court
A Municipal Court has its name because there is one located in every municipality. Thus, the Roselle Park Municipal Court is located in the Roselle Park Municipality. A municipality is like a town or small city, and it usually has its own mayor, city council, or municipal council. There is one Municipal Court in every municipality in New Jersey, making a total of 539 municipal courts throughout the state. Additionally, every municipality has its own local laws, and a violation of those laws would also be heard in Municipal Court.
Roselle Park Criminal Offenses
In New Jersey, criminal acts are not divided between misdemeanors and felonies, but are either called offenses or crimes, the latter being more serious. The Roselle Park Municipal court hears offenses, not crimes. The Most common offenses that come before the Roselle Park Municipal Court are disorderly persons offenses and include Simple Assault, Trespass, Resisting Arrest, Disorderly Conduct, Shoplifting (Theft), Possession of Marijuana or Drug Paraphernalia, Bad Checks, Loitering, Lewd Conduct, and Offensive Language. Even though these charges are not considered crimes in New Jersey, penalties associated with these acts are serious. A conviction of one of the above offenses can result in up to 6 months in prison, $1,000 in fines, probation, community service, and a permanent criminal record. At The Law Offices of Anthony N. Palumbo, I can help you develop an effective defense against these charges. There are many defenses that be used depending on the particular charge and the circumstances of your case. I have been building successful defenses for individuals charged with offenses in the Roselle Park for over 35 years.
Roselle Park Traffic Violations
The Roselle Park Municipal court also presides over most traffic offenses such as DUI/DWI, Driving without Insurance, Reckless Driving, Careless Driving, Speeding, or Driving While Suspended or Revoked, Leaving the Scene of an Accident, Failure to Report an Accident, Failure to Stop, Improper Lane Change, and Leaving the Scene of an Accident. A conviction of one of these offenses can have a serious impact on your life. Penalties associated with these traffic violations include fines, jail time, and loss of license. In some situations, loss of license can be permanent. An experienced Roselle Park Criminal Defense Lawyer will be familiar with these offenses, and will be able to answer any questions you have about them. Don’t enter a guilty plea without speaking to an attorney. These types of offenses are extremely defensible, and by pleading guilty you may be throwing away an acquittal or dropped charge.

Defending Your Roselle Park Municipal Court Charge
It is important to speak with an experienced and aggressive attorney about your case. A plea bargain has the same effect of entering a guilty plea, and if you enter one, you may be subjected to penalties when the charges against you would otherwise be dropped or reduced. There are many defenses that may be available to your charge. Evidence can be challenged on grounds of how it was collected, whether the individual who collected it was qualified, and whether it was carried in the proper chain of custody up to trial. Additionally, these types of offenses are ripe with constitutional issues, and there may be many constitutional arguments that can be exercised on your behalf.
