Controlled Dangerous Substance Charges in New Jersey

controlled-dangerous-substance-charges-in-new-jerseyIf you have been arrested or are under investigation for a drug-related charge in New Jersey, it’s important that you understand some of the unique aspects of how a controlled dangerous substance (CDS) is treated under New Jersey law.

Classification of Controlled Dangerous Substances

New Jersey law places all controlled dangerous substances into one of five categories, based on their likelihood of abuse and any recognized medical value. The classifications include common recreational drugs, such as marijuana, cocaine and heroin, but can also apply to any compounds or substances used in their manufacture. Those drugs that are believed to have the greatest risk of abuse, combined with the least perceived medical value, are found in Schedule I, and those with the least risk of addiction and the greatest medical value or Schedule V CDSes.

The Potential Penalties for Possession of a Controlled Dangerous Substance

The charges faced depend on the Schedule of the CDS in your possession. Possession of any amount of a Schedule I, II, III or IV controlled dangerous substance can be prosecuted as a crime in the 3rd degree, with a potential penalty of 3-5 years in prison and a fine of up to $35,000. If the drug falls under Schedule V, you can be sentenced to up to 18 months of incarceration and a $15,000 fine.

Theft Crimes in New Jersey

theft-crimes-in-new-jerseyIn New Jersey, theft crimes can be classified as either disorderly persons offenses or indictable offenses. In New Jersey, as in other states, theft crimes generally require intent. To be charged, a person must have knowingly or purposefully taken, transferred or exercised control over the property of another person with the intent to deprive the actual owner of dominion, use or control. In most instances, the specific charge in a theft prosecution will depend on the value of the goods or services taken.

Here’s an overview of the different types of theft crimes in New Jersey.

Petty Theft

A theft is considered a petty theft—a disorderly persons offense—if the amount taken is less than $200. The penalty can be significant, though. If convicted, you can face up to six months in jail and up to $1,000 in fines, as well as restitution.

Other Theft Crimes

As a general rule, all theft crimes where the value exceeds $200 may be charged as indictable offenses. If the value is between $200 and $500, the offense may be prosecuted as a crime of the fourth degree, with the potential for 18 months in prison and $10,000 in fines. If the value exceeds $500, but is less than $75,000, it’s generally charged as a crime in the third degree, with a potential three to five year term of incarceration and up to $15,000 in fines. Any theft of goods or services in excess of $75,000 is a crime in the second degree, with the possibility of $150,000 in fines and 5 to 10 years in prison.

Harassment as a Disorderly Persons Offense

harassment-as-a-disorderly-persons-offenseIn the heat of a dispute, your emotions can get the best of you and you can say or do things you regret later. Often, that can take the form of epithets or profane language, and your anger may even cause you to threaten physical harm to another person. You need to be careful, though, as you might engage in acts that would be considered harassment under New Jersey law.

Under NJSA 2C: 33-34, you can be charged with the disorderly persons offense of harassment if you do any of the following with the intent of harassing another person:

  • Cause or make anonymous communications to that person
  • Communicate with or to that person at inconvenient hours
  • Communicate with that person in coarse language
  • Engage in any other conduct likely to cause alarm in another person

It is also considered harassment if you strike, kick, shove or offensively touch another person, or if you simply threaten to commit any of those acts for the purpose of harassing someone. You can also be charged with harassment for engaging in any course of conduct or repeated acts designed to alarm or annoy another person.

In most instances, harassment is considered a petty disorderly persons offense, with a maximum penalty of 30 days in jail and a $500 fine. However, there are two situations where harassment will automatically be bumped up to a fourth degree crime:

  • If your intention was to intimidate or harass a person because of his or her race, color, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion or status as handicapped
  • If, at the time you engaged in the harassment, you were either incarcerated or on parole/probation for an indictable offense
