Kenilworth Municipal Court
The Kenilworth Municipal Court has jurisdiction over disorderly persons cases, DWI cases, and traffic violations within the borough. A disorderly persons offense, including but not limited to harassment, disorderly conduct, lewdness, resisting arrest, or obstruction, is considered the lowest form of crime in New Jersey. Despite this, a conviction for a disorderly persons offense is serious and can result in large fines, a criminal record, loss of license, and even jail-time. It is important to know that a criminal record cannot be expunged for 5 years, so future employers will be able to see your past transgression and may not hire you. If you are facing these charges make sure your rights are protected and your chances at a conviction are minimized.
The Kenilworth Municipal Court is presided over by Hon. Thomas A. Vitale. He has 31 years experience practicing law.
Kenilworth is a small borough of 7,914 bordering Cranford and Union Township. It has a very low rate of violent crime, but a higher rate of property crime. Theft is the most common offense in Kenilworth. 21.8% of the population is under the age of 18, so disorderly persons offenses commonly associated with teens can occur.
