Mendham NJ Underage Alcohol Possession and Prescription Drugs Charges
Have you been charged with underage alcohol possession in Morris County? We can help. Here is one case we handled for a client in Mendham Court with great results.
Travis J. Tormey recently represented a client who was charged with illegal possession of prescription drugs and underage possession of alcohol. Our client had no prior criminal record and was a college student at New York University (NYU). He was also interning on Wall Street and had a bright future ahead of him. Therefore, it was imperative that we keep his record clean of any criminal conviction.
Our client was facing a felony on his record for the illegal prescription drug possession. He was also facing a charge for possession of a controlled dangerous substance (CDS) in a motor vehicle, which carries a mandatory two-year license suspension if convicted.
Our client was stopped in his parents’ motor vehicle with his cousin in the passenger seat. In the trunk there was liquor belonging to his parents who recently had a large party at their home in Mendham. Additionally, when the officers searched the vehicle, they found nine (9) Adderall pills. Adderall is used by many college students to focus and study for exams.
Both our client and the passenger were charged with felony possession of prescription drugs and underage possession of the alcohol in the trunk of the vehicle.
Based on our client’s background and the circumstances of the case, we were able to convince the assistant Morris County prosecutor to remand the case back to Mendham Municipal Court as a misdemeanor. Then, Mr. Tormey appeared in Mendham and worked out a plea agreement with the municipal prosecutor.
