Criminal Offense or Traffic Ticket at TCNJ

The U.S. Department of Education requires that institutions like TCNJ compile annual security and fire safety reports. Each report contains a wide range of information including a compilation of the criminal offenses allegedly committed on campus and at resident facilities. Individuals were arrested at TCNJ on the following criminal charges during 2015:

These violations fall under one of five (5) grades set forth in the New Jersey Criminal Code. The least serious variety of criminal offense is a disorderly persons offense, the equivalent of a misdemeanor, and these are dealt with in Ewing Municipal Court. The term “felony” is not used in the criminal code and, instead, charges of this nature are called indictable offenses. They come in the form of a crime of the first, second, third or fourth degree. Authority to decide complaints and indictments falling within these grades rests with the Mercer County Superior Court in Trenton.
