Why is my case in Bedminster Municipal Court?
Your case is in Bedminster Municipal Court because you were either arrested, issued a summons, or a traffic ticket by the Bedminster Police Department. The Bedminster municipal court hears disorderly persons offenses (commonly called misdemeanors in other states), traffic violations, and DWI cases. A disorderly persons offense is considered the least severe form of a criminal offense. Common examples include underage drinking, property theft (if property is worth less than $200), criminal mischief, simple assault or shoplifting. Traffic violations such as speeding, reckless driving, and driving while suspended are also heard in the Municipal Court. Two major highways, I-78 and I-287, pass through Bedminster, fueling the number of traffic infractions heard in the Municipal Court.
A unique aspect of municipal court is that there are no juries. What does this mean for you? This means only one person will hear your case: the judge. The Bedminster Municipal Court is presided over by Hon. Robert J. Foley. He graduated from Seton Hall University Law School and has almost 40 years experience practicing law.
