College Student Charged for Marijuana
It can be scary if you are a college student charged for marijuana. The penalties can be severe and impact the rest of your future if not handled properly.
College Student Charged for Marijuana | Possession of Marijuana
As an experienced New Jersey Criminal Defense Attorney I often deal with cases where college students have been arrested for possessing a small amount of pot. Let’s say you go to Ramapo University up in the Mahwah/Ramapo area and you’ve been charged with possession of marijuana. I’ve handled cases up there for students. There are marijuana arrests sometimes in the quad or in your dorm room. Sometimes it’s the security guards who find the people and they call the police and now they have to be processed. They have to go to the Mahwah Municipal Court. It’s serious enough that you should be properly represented.
A lot has to do with your background. The idea behind representation of somebody like you, a college student, is to allow you to not have a problem in the future with employment. If you have an issue like this, I’ve handled many of these cases for Ramapo students, feel free to give me a call.
College Student Charged for Marijuana | Selling Marijuana
As an experienced New Jersey Criminal Defense Attorney I have dealt with many cases where college kids are arrested for selling marijuana. If you go to Ramapo University and you’ve been accused of selling marijuana, that’s a serious offense. It’s an indictable offense. It’s something that will be processed in the Superior Court in Bergen County.
First and foremost, you have to find an experienced criminal defense attorney who is someone who does criminal law for their entire career every day, day in and day out, not your friend’s buddy’s uncle who does real estate but does an occasional criminal case. It’s a serious charge and you should have an attorney who knows the ins and outs of the criminal justice system so they can navigate that with you.
