Criminal Update 9/30/11
How we helped our client with criminal charges
By Larry Hardcastle, Esq.
A client in Essex County was arrested for Possession of a Controlled Dangerous Substance (“CDS”) and Possession of a CDS in a Motor Vehicle. The drug the client possessed was Heroin. To make matters worse, it was the client’s third Possession of a CDS charge. Possessing Heroin in New Jersey is a crime in the third degree, which exposed my client to up to 5 years in prison, a fine of up to $15,000.00, and 6 months loss of license. Possessing a CDS in a motor vehicle comes with a fine and a two year license suspension. My client was terrified of the consequences. Through tough and direct negotiations with the prosecutor, I was able to negotiate a very favorable outcome for my client: No prison time, no loss of driving privileges, and a $200.00 fine.
