Lawyer for Ft. Dix Drug Charges

The Fort Dix Court hears misdemeanor charges filed by Ft. Dix Police, Ft. Monmouth and police at Naval Weapons Station Earle. The court also has jurisdiction over drug arrests on McGuire Air Force Base and Lakehurst Naval Air Station.

Common criminal charges filed on these bases are for possession of marijuana, assault and shoplifting. It is crucial to know that federal law is applied rather than New Jersey State law, as their are major differences between the two. If you have a court date scheduled in Ft. Dix, call to speak with a local defense attorney.

Federal law can be much more strict than NJ state law. For example, possession of less than 50 grams of marijuana is punishable by up to 6 months in jail in New Jersey. However, under federal criminal law, up to 1 year of prison can be imposed for the same charge.

There are no expungements for federal convictions. It is therefore crucial to be represented by a competent attorney. While diversionary programs exist in the federal system, they rules that govern them are complex and vary from similar New Jersey programs.
