Drug Paraphernalia Charges Newark NJ

The criminal trial lawyers at the Tormey Law Firm LLC recently represented a client who was facing drug paraphernalia charges, a disorderly persons (misdemeanor) criminal offense, in the Newark Municipal Court. He is a student at a military college and a conviction for this offense would severely impact his future for jobs, school, etc. If convicted of possession of drug paraphernalia, he would have a permanent criminal charge on his record (which he could expunge in a few years depending on any other charges he may have). He also could be fined $1,000, incarcerated up to six (6) months, and lose his driver’s license for a period of 24 months.

In this case, the police allegedly found some empty baggies with drug residue in his motor vehicle. We appeared in court several times over a long period of time (a few months) and the State failed to provide all of the required discovery. Discovery is police reports, witness statements, videos, lab reports…..all of the evidence that the State possesses and intends to rely upon to prove the charges against the defendant. We asked the Judge to sign an Order that if all the evidence was not provided then the case would be dismissed.
