Why would I be in this Court?

The Jamesburg Municipal Court handles incidents that occur within the municipality. The court is has limited jurisdiction and only adjudicates disorderly persons offenses, DWIs and motor vehicle infractions. In New Jersey, disorderly persons offenses (commonly referred to as misdemeanors in other states) are minor criminal offenses that are not severe enough to be indicted in superior court. Common examples of disorderly persons offenses are underage drinking, possession of less than 50 grams of marijuana, harassment, writing a bad check, resisting arrest, and many others. DWIs and traffic tickets for violations like speeding, reckless driving, driving while suspended, and leaving the scene of an accident are also dealt with in Jamesburg Municipal Court. Take advantage of our free consultation to learn more about the charges against you. Unfortunately, a conviction of one of these minor offenses can result in weighty consequences. A criminal record may prevent you from keeping or obtaining employment. If you are found guilty you may also be required to serve time in the county jail or participate in community service and pay a large sum of fees. Allow one of our attorneys to educate you on the charge and plan to deal with it.

The Jamesburg Municipal Court is presided over by Hon. Edward H. Herman. He received his law degree from Rutgers University School of Law and has been a Middlesex County Municipal Judge for 22 years.

About Jamesburg

Jamesburg is a borough of almost 6,000 completely surrounded by Monroe Township. It is an older, more industrial area with a very dense population. Mostly traffic violations and DWIs are heard in the courthouse, owing to the heavily patrolled county roads which pass through Jamesburg. The Jamesburg police occasionally make drug possession and simple assault arrests as well, which are then brought before the municipal court. The courthouse in Jamesburg routinely hears only 1 disorderly persons case and 10-15 tickets and DWI charges every week.
