Do You Have a Case in Municipal Court?
New Jersey is a state in which crimes are not classified as either felonies or misdemeanors. We have a statewide criminal code that defines crimes. The type of crime that would be classified as a felony in other states is simply referred to as a crime under our code. What other states would classify as a misdemeanor is referred to as a disorderly persons offense here and is typically resolved in municipal court.
