Ocean County Superior Court and the surrounding municipal courts adjudicate thousands of drug charges each year. Drug crimes are extremely serious events that result in jail, criminal records, steep fines and penalties, and tarnished reputations. New Jersey state and municipal police officers actively patrol and investigate for potential suspects in possession or actively distributing marijuana, cocaine, heroin and prescription drugs such as Oxycontin, Percocet, and Ritalin. New Jersey is currently in the midst of a heroin epidemic, and Ocean County is “Ground Zero.” State and local authorities have devoted vast amounts of taxpayer dollars to task force and undercover police operations in the hope of alleviating the problem and finding the distributors of heroin and prescription drugs.
