New Jersey Criminal Defense Attorney Discusses Joyriding Charges
As an experienced New Jersey Criminal Defense Attorney I have dealt with many joyriding cases. In the state of New Jersey, if an underage individual is driving a motor vehicle – some people would call it joy riding, that’s what they called it when I was a kid – they can be charged with an indictable offense. Very often, the state will bring the charges, and if this is a typical joyriding incident where the car belonged to a parent, the parent’s input might have some significant persuasion on the prosecutor to let the charges be reduced. But being charged with unlawful use of a motor vehicle in New Jersey is a serious offense.
