Travis J. Tormey of the Tormey Law Firm LLC recently represented a client charged with simple assault, a disorderly persons offense under N.J.S.A. 2C:12-1(a). The client was a young professional with no prior criminal history. If convicted of this charge, he would face a $1,000 fine, up to six (6) months in the Morris County Jail, and a permanent criminal charge on his record (which could be expunged after 3-5 years in certain circumstances). The client and his wife were celebrating at the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Morristown, New Jersey. There was obviously some alcohol consumption by both parties. The wife wanted to leave and go home and the husband wanted to stay out a little longer. As they were walking back to their apartment in Morristown, their verbal argument was observed by Morristown police officers and, according to their reports, the client pushed his wife as they were walking down the street. She did not fall, get hurt, or have any injuries from this “push”. Based on this evidence, and the fact that the wife did not want to press charges and was not willing to testify against her husband, the charges were dismissed in the Morristown Municipal Court.

Now, the client can file an expungement to have the arrest record removed and then the incident is completely removed from his permanent record.
