Handling Simple Assault Charges in Parsippany Municipal Court
Have you been arrested and charged with simple assault in Parsippany? Were false allegations made against you? Travis J. Tormey can help. Here is an example of a real simple assault case we successfully handled for a client in the Parsippany Court.
A client of the Tormey Law Firm was recently charged with simple assault under N.J.S.A. 2C:12-1(a) after an altercation with his girlfriend’s brother. Our client is a young man with no prior criminal history and a promising future. A domestic violence conviction for simple assault could significantly jeopardize that future. He is exposed to a $1,000 fine, up to six (6) months in the Morris County Jail, probation, and a permanent disorderly persons conviction on his record. He hired the Tormey Law Firm to defend against these charges and protect his record and his future.
We appeared in the Parsippany Municipal Court after receiving the discovery package. Discovery means all the evidence in the case that the State possesses and intends to use to prove the charges against the defendant. They typically include police reports, victim or witness statements, videos, pictures of any injuries, etc. The alleged victim appeared and spoke to the prosecutor as well. We were able to negotiate a carry order which had the charges carried for 90 days. The defendant attended anger management counseling and as long as there were no other incidents between the parties, the case will be dismissed.
When we again appeared in court a second time, we provided proof of the anger management counseling to the prosecutor. Because there were no other incidents between the defendant and the alleged victim, the simple assault charge was dismissed. Now, the defendant was eligible to file for an immediate expungement to have the arrest removed from his record as well.
