The PNC Arts Center in Holmdel, New Jersey is a popular venue for summertime concerts at the Jersey Shore in Monmouth County. Thousands of patrons attend performances each summer, and on concert days, tailgating is common.

This year’s lineup includes acts such as Dierks Bentley, John Fogerty, ZZ Top, Slayer, Imagine Dragons, Rascal Flatts, Steely Dan, the Doobie Brothers, the Vans Warped Tour, the Dave Matthews Band, Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, Kesha, Macklemore, The Cult, Lauryn Hill, Pentatonix, Deep Purple, Judas Priest, Ozzy Osbourne, Willie Nelson, Niall Horan, and Kevin Hart, among others. As the crowds gather at the PNC, so do arrests – for underage drinking, possession of marijuana, assault, driving under the influence, possession of drugs, public urination, possession of drugs in a motor vehicle, and traffic violations. Think twice between carrying an open container in the parking lot or smoking marijuana before the show, or risk arrest by the undercover State Police at the PNC Arts Center.

Many of those arrested or issued summonses at the PNC Arts Center are high school and college-age students. Many have no prior criminal record. Schwartz & Posnock has handled countless cases from the PNC Arts Center for the last 25 years, and we have protected many young professionals, college students, and recent high school grads from the potentially devastating consequences of having even a minor conviction on their record.

Regardless of your age, these charges are very serious, and a conviction can have a devastating consequence on your career, choice of schools, or job advancement. Given the prevalence of background checks, your work and your professional license may be at risk. Since the stakes are so high, you need a skillful and experienced lawyer who knows the system, and appears frequently before the Monmouth County Superior Court and the Holmdel, New Jersey Municipal Court.
