Criminal Offense at Peddie School in Hightstown NJ

The Hightstown Police Department have the capability to file a criminal offense and to arrest someone who violates the law at Peddie School just like any other location in the municipality. If a juvenile offense or adult charge was filed against your child, it is important that you have a basic knowledge regarding the criminal justice process. When someone accused of violating the law is under eighteen (18) years old, the violation falls under the jurisdiction of the Juvenile Part of the Family Court in Trenton. There is no authority for a local court to deal with a juvenile offense so you will need to attend proceedings at the Mercer County Superior Court to resolve the charge. If the summons, ticket or complaint involves a traffic offense, the case falls squarely within the jurisdiction of the Highstown Municipal Court. Our attorneys handle all offenses arising at Peddie School including:

  • Possession of 50 Grams or Less of Marijuana
  • Simple Assault
  • Harassment
  • Distribution of Marijuana, MDMA, Cocaine & other forms of Controlled Dangerous Substance (“CDS”)
  • Aggravated Assault
  • Sexual Assault
  • Underage Drinking & Alcohol Possession
  • Terroristic Threats
  • Burglary
  • Theft

Do not make the mistake of thinking that just because the charge involves a juvenile offense that you cannot be exposed to serious penalties. The truth is that while the exposure to penalties like incarceration are less significant in juvenile court, your child can be sent to juvenile detention for even a disorderly persons offense. Hiring a knowledgeable lawyer is important to insulating your son/daughter from consequences such as these.
