Minor Charged With Marijuana Possession, Assault, Terroristic Threat, Burglary, Criminal Mischief, CDS Distribution, Possession of Xanax and other Drugs or Another Criminal Offense in Wall New Jersey
Former Wall Township Prosecutors Are Ready To Defend Your Son or Daughter
The police in Wall New Jersey are notorious for being very aggressive and this is especially true when it comes to juvenile charges. It seems that there is no bigger target of law enforcement in the Township than young motorist. While there is plenty of logic to their focus, the flip side is that juvenile offenders tend to be the least equipped to deal with an arrest or criminal charge. This is one of the reasons why it is important that you retain a skilled juvenile attorney if your son or daughter has been charged with an assault (e.g. simple assault or aggravated assault), possession of marijuana or other drugs, cds distribution, terroristic threat or other criminal offense.
The defense team at the Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall is exceptionally suited to serve your child as his or her juvenile defense lawyer.

Juvenile Criminal Offense in Wall Township New Jersey
The variety of criminal offense that a juvenile can face in Wall is virtually endless. There are, however, some charges that arise more often than others. These cases make up the bulk of the defense work of our Wall Juvenile Defense Lawyers. The types of violations that fall within this description include:
- Possession of Drugs like Marijuana, LSD, Xanax, Ecstasy or even Heroin
- Simple Assault
- Aggravated Assault
- Terroristic Threat
- Criminal Mischief
- Underage Drinking and Alcohol Possession
- Distribution of CDS
- Weapon Possession (e.g. BB, Pellet or Airsoft Gun)
- Sexual Assault & Criminal Sexual Contact
Your Child Must Be Represented By An Attorney. Parents often think that they will defend their child without an attorney. The fact is, however, that New Jersey law requires that your son or daughter have a defense lawyer at their side when they walk into court; so you either have to qualify for a public defender because of lack of resources or hire private counsel. The lawyers at our firm are available to discuss our serving in this capacity 24/7 and initial consultations are free.
Penalties Often Include The Possibility Of Juvenile Detention. While the penalties that a juvenile arrested in Wall faces at the Monmouth County Superior Court in Freehold are less severe than what an adult would face for a crime of the first degree, second degree, third degree or fourth degree, or even disorderly persons offense, they always include the possibility of juvenile detention. A juvenile delinquency complaint in Wall New Jersey may result in the following detention: 4 years for a first degree crime, 3 years for a second degree crime, 2 years for a third degree crime, 1 year for a fourth degree crime; and 6 months for a disorderly persons offense.
Securing a Diversion or Other Avenues for Success. Our attorneys are often successful in securing acquittal or, alternatively, a deferred disposition on behalf of our juvenile clients. A deferred disposition is essentially a dismissal of the charge conditioned on your child staying out of trouble for a specified period. Once the term of the deferred disposition is completed, the original juvenile criminal offense is permanently dismissed.
