Marlboro police make a large amount of arrests for Marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia. Each of these charges carry up to 6 months in jail, a $1,000 fine and a minimum license suspension of 6 months. These arrests usually result from traffic stops, Routes 9 and 18 traverse Marlboro, and lots of cars are stopped on both roadsAn experienced Marlboro criminal defense attorney can usually find a defense to the charges or at least mitigate their consequences.

The driver’s license is mandatory to anyone convicted of such offense unless the individual can show that the suspension of their driver’s license would pose an extreme hardship on them. Work and school generally do not rise to the level of hardship necessary to avoid the suspension. Along with these charges often comes a citation for possessing a controlled dangerous substance in a motor vehicle. This ticket carries a two-year mandatory driver’s license suspension. This would be in addition to whatever infraction the individual was initially stopped for. For example, a car pulled over for tailgating or speeding in Marlboro would be approached by the police officer. The officer may smell the odor of marijuana, ask for consent to search the vehicle, and its usually downhill from there. This driver would receive summons for all the violations. It helps to be cooperate, but not to the point of incriminating oneself. Do not answer any questions, but be polite, as I’ve seen officers hold off on issuing the additional ticket for CDS in a motor vehicle (NJSA 39:4-49.1) to suspects who were respectful and cooperative.
