New Jersey Criminal Lawyer Discusses Conditional Discharges
As an experienced New Jersey Criminal Lawyer I constantly receive questions regarding conditional discharges. If you’re charged with a marijuana possession, cocaine possession, heroin possession, anything that has to do with a controlled, dangerous substance and it’s being prosecuted in the municipal court and you have not had any diversionary programs in the past such as applied for or accepted into additional discharge program in the past, or have any prior criminal record with regard to control of dangerous substances, you’ll be eligible to apply for a conditional discharge. A conditional discharge in the state of New Jersey is a diversionary program, it does not end in a conviction.
It’s a very useful tool for the right individual. However, I like to analyze a person’s case before determining whether or not they should apply for a conditional discharge, because there might be other defenses available so that an individual does not have to use or burn up their conditional discharge, because you only get one conditional discharge in your life.
