Indictable Offenses

New Jersey has some of the strictest mandatory sentencing schemes in the nation.  Major crimes in New Jersey are referred to as “Indictable Offenses.”  These are divided into degrees: First, Second, Third and Fourth.  Crimes of the First, Second and Third degrees generally equate to what are called felony convictions in other jurisdictions.  Indictable crimes are tried in Superior Court with the exception of Fourth degree offenses which can be tried in Superior or Municipal Courts depending on the circumstances.

If you have been arrested and charged with an indictable offense in New Jersey, a sentence of imprisonment, in accordance with N.J.S.A. 2C:43-6, is a possibility.  If you have been previously convicted for certain offenses, you may also face the risk of an extended term of imprisonment.  In addition, New Jersey incorporates a host of mandatory minimum sentences and special sentencing provisions throughout its statutory system.

If you find yourself charged with an Indictable offense in New Jersey, you need to understand what is at stake.  The Bahuriak Law Group understands the legal complexity involved in all facets of your case from charging, pre-trial motions and trial.
