Asbury Park issues hundreds of Disorderly Conduct and related charges each year. Disorderly Conduct is a common catchall charge that is written broadly and pertains to a variety of behaviors. Asbury Park’s location as a primary boardwalk hotspot in Monmouth County and along the Jersey Shore leads to a number of Disorderly Conduct arrests and arrests for related charges that include Simple Assault, Resisting Arrest, Aggravated Assault, Harassment, Trespass, and Obstructing. If you are facing one of these charges, then you are exposed to steep fines and potential jail time. It is in your best interest to protect your record, fight your case, and seek a downgrade or dismissal with the help of an experienced, local defense attorney. Call McGuckin Law with any questions you may have.
Drug (CDS) charges are rampant in Asbury Park and the surrounding areas. Local police patrol the town and the boardwalk issuing hundreds of arrests for marijuana possession, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, distribution in a school zone, prescription drug charges, CDS in a motor vehicle, drug paraphernalia, and possession of heroin. Drug charges are serious. Depending on the type and amount of drug, your matter will be heard in either Asbury Park Municipal Court or in Monmouth County Superior Court. Penalties increase with the amount of drug, location, seriousness of the drug, and number of priors. For more information on your drug charge and how McGuckin Law can help you, visit our Jersey Shore Drug Crime Resource Center.
Asbury Park police issue a large number of DWI, Refusal, Drug DUI, and DWI in a School Zone tickets. These are serious charges that include loss of license, possible exposure to jail time, installation of an ignition interlock device, steep fines, and mandatory drug and alcohol counseling. Unfortunately, New Jersey DUI Law precludes plea-bargaining Drunk Driving cases and also precludes work hardship licenses. As a result, the best defense is a skilled, aggressive offense. Visit our Jersey Shore DWI resource page to understand how to fight the State’s case to get your DWI downgraded or dismissed.
