Degree of Criminal Charges in Monmouth County Superior Court

Depending on the specific offense, you may face charges for a first, second, third, or fourth degree crime. First degree crimes are considered the most egregious under New Jersey law and are punishable by a sentence to serve between 10 and 20 years in New Jersey State Prison. Second degree crimes are also very serious, resulting in prison terms ranging from 5 to 10 years. Third degree crimes are slightly different from the two mentioned previously, as they entail a presumption of non-incarceration for first time offenders. This means that if you have no prior criminal record and are charged with a third degree crime, you may be considered a good candidate for probation or a diversionary program such as Drug Court or Pre-Trial Intervention (PTI). Fourth degree crimes are the lowest-level felony offenses, and may result in a sentence to serve up to 18 months in NJ State Prison.

Success in Monmouth County Superior Court

The following is one client’s story of success when represented by Ms. Breslow:

“I was arrested in June of 2015 for a felony charge and was absolutely scared out of my mind. I had never been in any sort of legal trouble, but that fright I felt quickly dissipated the second I retained Tara. Her confidence, brilliance and professionalism completely put me at ease. I honestly felt like I had an attorney who cared more about my well being and my future than she did her attorney fees, and that feeling was quickly proven true. Tara somehow managed to get my charges completely dismissed by the County Prosecutor without even having to make a single court appearance.”
