Domestic Violence Simple Assault Allegations in Denville NJ

Our client and his wife had a dispute at their home in Denville and the police were called. He was arrested and charged with simple assault, a disorderly persons criminal offense, under N.J.S.A. 2C:12-1(a). Our client, a young professional, had no prior criminal history and was extremely concerned that this arrest and potential conviction could have on his job and career. He was facing up to a $1,000 fine, up to six (6) months in the Morris County jail, probation, and a permanent criminal charge on his record if he was convicted of this misdemeanor level offense.

Fight Simple Assault Charges NJ 2C:12-1a in Denville Municipal Court NJ

Once we are hired in the case, we obtain all of the State’s evidence (known as discovery) which they possess and intend to rely upon to attempt to prove the simple assault charges beyond a reasonable doubt in Denville Municipal Court. This discovery usually includes police reports, videos, witness statements, pictures of injuries, etc. Once we have the discovery, the case is scheduled for a conference with the Denville Municipal Prosecutor to see if the case can be resolved or it will be scheduled for trial. A trial in Municipal Court is before a Municipal Court Judge, not a jury.

We appeared in court and his wife, the alleged victim, informed the prosecutor that she did not want to proceed with the charges and wanted the case dropped. However, it’s up to the State (the prosecutor and police officer) and the Judge whether or not the case actually is dismissed. Here, they agreed to carry the case for ninety (90) days and dismiss the charges at the end of that period as long as the parties had no other domestic violence incidents at their home and as long as the defendant completed anger management counseling. This is known as a “carry order”.

Our client agreed to those terms and completed the counseling that they requested. The charges were dismissed after the ninety (90) days and he has no criminal record from this event. In addition, he was able to file an expedited expungement with the court to have his arrest removed from his record as well.
