Domestic Violence Simple Assault
Many cases of simple assault in New Jersey are the result of domestic violence. Most people charged think that the alleged victim can just drop the charge. However, it is not their charge to drop. When you receive your summons, you’ll see that it says the State of New Jersey vs. you and not the alleged victim vs. you. Therefore, only the prosecutor can decide what to do. On top of that, domestic violence is very common and even the most minor of cases are treated as very serious for any number of reasons. Thus, the prosecutor will likely be on board to just dropping the charge. In fact, they often come at these cases at full force. That is why our NJ criminal defense lawyers fight these cases even harder. Our strategies have been proven over many years in hundreds of courts.
