Frequently Asked Questions About Criminal Defense Options in Woodbridge Township, NJ

FAQ: Is there some type of time limit after which I cannot be prosecuted for a criminal offense in New Jersey?

In some cases, yes. For most violent crimes, such as sexual assault or murder, there is no time limit for prosecuting your case—charges can be brought against you even if decades have passed. In non-violent criminal cases, however, the prosecution must bring charges against you within a specific time frame for the charges to stick. The time period varies depending upon the crime, and can be as little as one year in some cases.

FAQ: Is it better to go to trial or accept a plea in New Jersey?

The best answer depends upon your specific case. At Zegas Law, we never push clients to accept a guilty plea—because we are fully prepared to forcefully argue on your behalf at trial. However, if a plea offer is on the table, we will make sure you understand the possible consequences of accepting or rejecting that plea. In some cases, the prosecution might “over-charge” you with the goal of getting you to accept a lower charge so that they don’t have to go to trial. By the time we reach the plea bargaining stage, our lawyers will have sufficient evidence of our own to help you understand the likelihood of conviction based on the pool of evidence.
