Have you been arrested and charged with terroristic threats or aggravated assault in Essex County? We can help. Here is an example of a real case we recently handled for a client facing those same charges.

The Essex County NJ criminal defense lawyers at the Tormey Law Firm recently represented a client who was charged with third degree aggravated assault as well as third degree terroristic threats arising out of Orange, NJ in Essex County. This was an alleged domestic violence incident and our client was facing 5 years in prison on each third degree charge. Our client is an active member of the United States Navy and a felony conviction for either of these charges would jeopardize his career in the military.

The alleged victim in this matter did not want to proceed with the charges. As a result, we were able to convince the Essex County Prosecutor’s office to downgrade these two felony charges to disorderly persons(misdemeanor) offenses and send them back to the Orange Municipal Court for disposition. Our client agreed to take 12 anger management counseling sessions and they carried the case for several months to ensure that no other incidents of domestic violence occurred. Then, we appeared in court with proof of the anger management sessions and, since there were no other incidents between the parties, the Judge dismissed the charges completely. Our client now applied for an immediate expungement to have the arrest removed from his record as well.
