Hackensack municipal court lawyer Adam M. Lustberg releases a new article (https://www.lustberglaw.com/municipal-code-violations-new-jersey/) that discusses disorderly person offenses, traffic tickets, and DWI offenses in New Jersey. The lawyer states that most non-violent criminal offenses in the state can be dealt with at the municipal court level. Someone charged in their locality with a disorderly person offense will need to appear in the courthouse in the area where they were taken into custody.

"In some cases, a felony charge initially handled at the superior court level (Bergen County Superior Court) can be downgraded to a disorderly person offense - the case will then be adjudicated in municipal court, where the potential penalties are much less severe," says the Hackensack municipal court lawyer.
