Robbinsville Police make a surprising number of arrest for Marijuana, drug and drug paraphernalia possession in the Township of Robbinsville. If you have had the misfortune of being charged with a drug offense, possession of a controlled dangerous substance, drug paraphernalia or marijuana possession, you will be summoned to appear for a first appearance in the Robbinsville Municipal Court. The Robbinsvlle Court is also sometimes known as the Washington Township Municipal Court.

Before you appear for this arraignment for a marijuana or other drug offense, you should contact a Robbinsville defense lawyer to discuss your rights and how to best defend yourself against the charges. Robbinville Township is located in eastern Mercer County, New Jersey. A lot of these arrests in Robbinsville occur after traffic stops for tickets on Route 130. The Judge in Robbinsville Court is the Honorable Douglas Hoffman, J.M.C. The prosecutor is Christopher K. Koutsouris, Esq.

In the State of New Jersey, both charges of possession of less than 50 grams of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia are classified as “disorderly persons” offenses. Disorderly persons offenses are criminal charges, but not technically “crimes” or felonies under New Jersey law. Disorderly Persons offenses, or “DP”s are punishable by up to six months jail and a 1,000 fine. The judge must also impose a $500 DEDR penalty and other sanctions or a marijuana conviction.

In addition, the New Jersey Legislature has deemed that these offenses must also carry a mandatory minimum six month license suspension. This is to be imposed even if a car was not involved in the possession. Of course, a criminal conviction can be made part of your record, which can follow you around until you may obtain an expungement.

An experienced attorney may be able to get the charges against you dismissed through a diversionary program such as a conditional discharge. The search of your person or your vehicle may have been illegal, and subject to suppression. There may be other defenses to the charge but all depend on the facts of your specific case.
