3 Common Robbery Cases
In New Jersey, robbery is a serious offense that could result in a long-term jail sentence if convicted. If you have been charged with a robbery, you may be worried about how you are going to proceed. Here are 3 common robbery cases that you should be aware of.
3 Common Robbery Cases | Shoplifting
In New Jersey, if you are charged with shoplifting, your case will more than likely be prosecuted at a municipal court in a local town or in a superior court at the county level, depending on the value of the property. Very often, cases that are of higher value will be prosecuted at a higher level. However, very often, the county prosecutor will reduce those charges to a disorderly persons offense and then you’ll be prosecuted at the municipal level. What you should know is that most prosecutors will not plea bargain shoplifting cases, and you’ll need an experienced attorney to navigate through a shoplifting case.
3 Common Robbery Cases | Burglary
If you are charged with a burglary in New Jersey, know full well that you are being charged with an indictable offense that is very vigorously prosecuted. A burglary is an entering into a dwelling or other type of building with an intent to commit a crime inside. So, if you entered an apartment and intended to take something but didn’t, there might not be a defense. Making a statement to law enforcement in probably not in your best interests. Contact an attorney so that you can be protected regarding your rights.
3 Common Robbery Cases | Stealing from Your Company
If an individual is accused of stealing from their company, they may be prosecuted at the state or federal level. I’ve handled cases of theft from companies that are at the federal level. The federal government takes it very seriously when individuals steal from their companies. I’m not talking about taking a paper clip or a stapler; in many instances, companies are looted by their own employees, often by more than one. The federal government takes these cases very seriously and will prosecute vigorously.
