West Windsor Drug Arrests, Marijuana and Paraphernalia Charges

by in Drug Defense

West Windsor Police actively investigate drug activity in West Windsor Township. This includes possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. If West Windsor police have arrested you for a drug offense, you will have to appear for an arraignment in the West Windsor Municipal Court. Before your court date, you should contact an experienced criminal defense attorney to find out what your rights are and what the possible penalties are that you might be facing.

Possession of less than 50 grams of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia are classified as disorderly persons offenses, which are known as misdemeanors in other states. While technically not “crimes” under New Jersey law, they can still subject you to six months in jail and a 1,000 dollar fine. Your driver’s license will also be forfeited for at least six months.

Often, individuals are arrested for drug possession after being stopped for a traffic violation. This is true especially in West Windsor and other suburban areas. West Windsor is located in eastern Mercer County, New Jersey. West Windsor should not be confused with East Windsor, which has its own municipal court.

After being stopped for speeding or improper passing or any other West Windsor traffic ticket, the officers may try to search your car if they suspect that it might contain drugs or or weapons. An experienced criminal defense attorney may find ways to challenge the search or minimize the punishment you face. The police may have not had a proper reason to stop you in the first place, or did not properly follow police procedures. This may result in the suppression of the contraband they found.
