Compared to its size and population Bloomfield has a high number of DWI and drug arrests each year. This is due in large part to the fact that Bloomfield is patrolled by the municipal police as well as the New Jersey State Police who patrol the Garden State Parkway.
If the Bloomfield or New Jersey State Police arrested you for DWI there are two very important factors to consider before making any decisions or taking any steps regarding these charges. First, New Jersey law does not allow for any plea agreements for DWI cases. Unlike most other traffic and criminal offenses, the judge and prosecutor have no discretion to allow you to plea bargain for a lesser sentence. Second, if you are convicted you will face a period of mandatory loss of license. Again, the judge does not have discretion to exclude this from your sentence.
Similarly, for possession and distribution drug charges there can be devastating consequences for a conviction. Depending on the type and quantity of drugs, you could face up to 10 years in prison and thousands of dollars in fines. The type and quantity will determine the degree of crime you are charged with. If you are charged with a disorderly persons offense your case will be handled in Bloomfield Municipal Court. If you are charged with an indictable offense then the case will be adjudicated in Essex County Superior Court.
No matter the charge you are facing, it is important to go to court armed with a skillful defense attorney.
