Do you know the different types of crimes? Depending on the state, different offenses could mean different consequences if you are found guilty. The categories in the state of New Jersey are simple: there are indictable crimes and there are disorderly persons offenses. An indictable offense means a person must first be tried on an indictment after a preliminary hearing to determine whether there is enough sufficient evidence to establish a case.
Indictable crimes include:
- Aggravated sexual assault
- Money laundering
- Drug trafficking
- Aggravated assault
Lower level crimes are disorderly persons offenses. These kinds of charges are less serious than a felony, but a conviction can still carry serious penalties, including jail time and heavy fines. These are generally summary offenses, which means a person can be tried without facing a jury.
Disorderly offenses include:
- Simple Assault
- Possession of Less than 50 Grams of Marijuana
- Drug Paraphernalia
- Shoplifting (less than $200)
- Disorderly Conduct
- Resisting Arrest
- Bad Checks
