Indictable Crimes In New Jersey Are Classified By Degrees

An indictable crime means that, in order for an individual to be charged with the crime, a grand jury must review the case, find there is enough evidence to support the charge, and require the defendant to stand trial for the crime. The indictment is a written statement prepared by the grand jury.

In New Jersey, indictable crimes are classified by degrees, from first degree through fourth degree. First degree crimes are the most serious crimes and fourth degree crimes are the least serious. Examples of each of these classifications are as follows:

  • First degree crimes: manslaughter, rape, and murder
  • Second degree crimes: burglary, drug crimes, sex crimes, aggravated arson, white collar crimes, and kidnapping
  • Third degree crimes: possession of controlled substances, some robbery offenses, some offenses involving driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI)
  • Fourth degree crimes: forgery, stalking, some DUI offenses, some robbery offenses

In classifying crimes according to this schedule, some crimes are classified based on whether the crime is a first or subsequent offense. Punishment for crimes are based on the crime’s classification; New Jersey establishes standard guidelines for each degree of indictable crimes.

FAQ: What does “reasonable doubt” mean?

In the United States, in order to be convicted of a crime, the prosecutor must prove a defendant’s guilt “beyond a reasonable doubt”. This is intentionally a very high standard of proof. During a trial, the defendant may present a defense that is designed to raise reasonable doubt, thereby reducing the strength of the prosecution’s case. Most criminal defenses fall into two categories: I did not commit the crime or I did commit the crime, but I should not be held responsible.
