Millstone Juvenile Lawyer
Millstone Township does not have its own police force. New Jersey State Police patrol the mostly rural town and have the authority to make both adult and juvenile arrests. Most Millstone juvenile arrests are for marijuana and other drug and CDS possession. Charges against juveniles for criminal mischief, assault and more serious crimes occur with less frequency in Millstone. I defend both adult and juvenile drug arrests, DWI and other court matters in Millstone. If your child has been arrested for a crime or DWI in Millstone, call now to speak with a Monmouth County juvenile defense attorney.
