Aberdeen NJ Criminal & DWI Lawyers
Aberdeen is a diverse Monmouth County Community that has gained much of its popularity because of its accessibility to and from New York City. Whether you are a commuter or had some other reason for being Aberdeen Township, there are serious ramifications if you are convicted of the criminal, DWI/DUI or traffic violation you are facing. You will be left with a criminal record upon pleading or being found guilty for a disorderly persons offense and also be subject to significant financial consequences. You could even be required to serve up to six months in the county jail. A DWI or other serious motor vehicle offense also carries potent penalties, including a mandatory driver’s license suspension of up one year for even a first offense. The penalties, including a minimum jail sentence and thousands of dollars in fines, assessments and other costs, are worse if this is your second offense, third offense or more.

Given that the Garden State Parkway and the New Jersey Transit Train Station are located in the town, there are other law enforcement agencies beyond the Aberdeen Police Department who have their charges heard in Aberdeen Municipal Court. The New Jersey State Police patrol that portion of the Parkway falling within the township, as do NJ Transit Police in terms of alleged violations at the railroad station and/or on the train. The result is relatively higher figures than you might expect for criminal offenses and traffic violations like driving while suspended, reckless driving, operating without insurance and leaving the scene of an accident. There were 5,070 summonses issued for moving traffic charges issued by these agencies for the twelve months ending June 2014. Arrests for felony crimes, which would have to be handled at the Monmouth County Superior Court, were however very low during this period with 179 complaints filed. Misdemeanor charges in Aberdeen fell in the middle with a total of 597 issued.
