The NJ domestic violence lawyers at the Tormey Law Firm recently represented a client who was facing a disorderly persons criminal charge for simple assault under N.J.S.A. 2C:12-1(a) in the Millburn Municipal Court. The complaint arose out of a dispute with his wife. There have never been any domestic incidents involving these parties in the past as this was their first interaction with the Millburn police department and the criminal justice system. Our client was not a United States citizen so a conviction for this simple assault charge could have serious implications on his immigration status. In addition, he would be facing a permanent misdemeanor charge on his record, up to six (6) months in the Essex County Jail, and a $1,000 fine.

Obtain Evidence, Review Discovery, Conference Case with Prosecutor in Millburn Court

After retaining the Tormey Law Firm, we reached out to the prosecutor to obtain all of the evidence in the case. Evidence can include police reports, witness statements, videos, pictures of injuries, etc. Once we receive the evidence and review it, then we discuss the case with the prosecutor to see if the matter can be resolved without going to trial. Cases can be dismissed or plea bargaining down to something else that works for both the State and the defendant. Luckily, in this case, his wife did not have any injuries from the alleged assault. In addition, she did not want to proceed with the case and was unwilling to testify against him.

Carry Order – Case Postponed, Defendant Completes Counseling, No Other Domestic Violence Incidents, Case Dismissed

As a result, the prosecutor agreed to a carry order whereby the charges are carried for 60 days. Our client completed some counseling and anger management and, as long as there were no other incidents between the parties, the case would be dismissed. When we appeared in court again after the carry order and provided proof that the counseling was completed by the defendant, the charges were dismissed. Then, our client was able to file for an automatic expungement with the court to have the arrest expunged from his record as well. This was a great result for our client and the Tormey Law Firm LLC.
