As the 2014 music season at the PNC Arts Center concludes, concertgoers should be aware that the New Jersey State Police will deploy undercover officers at upcoming events, including Drake v. Lil Wayne; Kings of Leon; Motley Crue, and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. The undercover officers seek to arrest concertgoers for drug possession and distribution, disorderly conduct, driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs, and underage drinking, the staples of PNC Arts Center criminal cases.
These cases will either be prosecuted in the Holmdel Township Municipal Court or in the Superior Court of New Jersey for Monmouth County, located in Freehold, N.J. Whether the charges remain in the Holmdel Municipal Court or are transferred to the Superior Court, depends, in part on the amount and type of drugs confiscated. Underage drinking cases will remain in the Holmdel Municipal Court.
Concertgoers have much to lose if their criminal case resulting from an arrest at the PNC Arts Center is improperly defended. A criminal conviction can be a permanent part of your record, making your career choices unavailable to you, making good job prospects evaporate, and jeopardizing your admission to the college or graduate program of your choice. Our experienced criminal defense lawyers can shape the outcome of your case to best protect you, and facilitate an expungement of your record, if necessary.
