I represented a client recently who was charged with 2nd degree eluding arising out of Parsippany, New Jersey. This second degree indictable (felony) level charge must be handled at the Morris County Superior Court in Morristown, New Jersey. My client was facing five (5) to ten (10) years in New Jersey State Prison with a presumption of incarceration. This means that, even with no prior criminal record, it is presumed that you will receive a state prison sentence if you are convicted of a second degree offense. Moreover, he was facing a permanent indictable (felony) charge on his record. Finally, because he is a permanent resident (green card holder), he would be deported if he was convicted of any indictable (felony) level offense.

I was able to carry the probation violation for several months to allow my client to comply with his probation officer while I resolve the pending charge in Monmouth County.
