New Jersey Criminal Lawyers Schwartz Posnock

Concert goers who attend events at the PNC Arts Center in Holmdel, Monmouth County, New Jersey should be aware that the New Jersey State Police are extremely active at concerts. Several upcoming concerts are certain to draw an increased police presence, including the Vans Warped Tour, Phish, and Bob Weir with Phil Lesh. The State Police presence includes an increased number of undercover officers who will attempt to make a direct buy of drugs in one of the parking lots and on the performance grounds. LSD, ecstasy and marijuana possession arrests are common. Underage possession of alcohol is also a target offense at PNC concert events. Arrests at the Arts Center for small amounts of marijuana or other drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia, and underage possession of alcohol are common, as are arrests for disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, public intoxication, public urination, and hindering police activity. These cases are typically prosecuted in the Holmdel Township Municipal Court. More serious cases are sent to the Monmouth County Superior Court in Freehold, New Jersey for consideration for presentation to a grand jury for possible indictment. Often cases initially sent to Superior Court are then remanded to the Holmdel Municipal Court on reduced charges.

It is also common for individuals driving from the PNC Arts Center to be charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, possession of drugs in a motor vehicle, and other motor vehicle offenses, including speeding, careless driving, reckless driving, and leaving the scene of an accident. These types of cases are also prosecuted in the Holmdel Township Municipal Court, or in the Municipal Courts of the neighboring towns along the Garden State Parkway. Our criminal defense attorneys have extensive experience in the Holmdel Township and nearby Municipal Courts.

It is important to remember that every drug possession and drug paraphernalia case carries a potential for suspension of your New Jersey driving privileges as well as a potential jail sentence. Suspension of these privileges may be transferred to your home state if you are not a resident of New Jersey. Having an experienced criminal defense attorney can prevent you from getting a criminal record, protect your college and employment prospects, and keep you from losing your driving privileges.
