In their efforts to help keep their city’s streets and roads safe for all, police in Raritan have made several arrests over the past few weeks. The offenses range from DWI to domestic violence to drug-related violations and theft. Now, those charged with these New Jersey offenses are likely considering their options for mounting an effective criminal defense.
Arrests and charges
On March 20, police arrested two individuals in separate incidents. One was the arrest of an 18-year-old man for DWI when he was reportedly observed traveling in the wrong direction on Route 206. The other arrest was of a 24-year-old woman who purportedly borrowed a car from a friend and never returned it. She was charged with theft.
On March 21, officers arrested a 49-year-old man and accused him of obtaining prescription drugs fraudulently by falsifying his identity. The incident reportedly happened at the Atlantic Medical Group. On April 2, a 45-year-old woman was arrested for DWI after police reportedly found her passed out in her car. And on April 3, police arrested a 26-year-old woman for DWI. During this timeframe, authorities reportedly made at least five other arrests for domestic violence.
Right to defense
As with all accused of crimes, these individuals are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in court. As such, they will want to work closely with an experienced criminal defense attorney in New Jersey to increase their chances of obtaining the best outcome possible. A lawyer will analyze all evidence against the accused and work to mount the most effective defense strategy possible, considering the circumstances.
