Arrested on Charges in Neptune New Jersey
The number of offenses filed in Neptune Township far exceeds that in Neptune City. This makes sense since the Township has 27,935 residents and measures 8.67 square miles as compared to the City which only has 4,869 residents and .954 square miles. Despite the wide gap in size and population, the disparity in disorderly persons offense filed each year is not what you might anticipate. For the last 12 months reported by the NJ Administrative Office of the Court, there were 4,655 complaints in Neptune City for violations like possession of 50 grams or less of marijuana, harassment, and resisting arrest. The total was 9,229 in the Township of Neptune. Several popular night spots and its proximity to beach towns like Belmar and Avon probably contribute to the proportionately higher amount of charges in the City of Neptune. Our firm has been in existence for almost twenty years and employs several former prosecutors from Monmouth County who have been appearing in both courts in Neptune in countless matters.
