Consequences of a Criminal Conviction
H. Scott Aalsberg, Esq., P.C. Attorneys at Law
In New Jersey if you plead or are found guilty to any criminal
or disorderly persons charge either in a NJ Municipal or
Superior Court you will be subject to the following 12
penalties: (No Exceptions)

1. You will have a criminal record.  A Criminal record may prevent you from finding
employment, seeking financial aid, buying a house, renting an apartment, or even
traveling outside the country.

2. You may go to Jail or Prison.  (even for a first offense)

3. You will have to pay Fines and Court Costs.

3. You will most likely be sentenced to a term of probation. If so, you will have to
submit to random drug and urine testing and pay a fee to the probation department.
If you violate Probation such as stay out later than your allowed,
travel outside a designated area, leave the state or country you will generally go
immediately to jail.

4. In indictable matters (4th degree or higher), you will be required to provide a DNA
sample, which could be used by law enforcement for the investigation of criminal
activity, and pay for the cost of testing.

5. You must pay restitution if the court finds there is a victim or store who has
suffered a loss.

6. If you are a public employee of a government agency, school teacher or an office
holder, you can be required to forfeit your job, pension or office by virtue of your plea
of guilty.

7. If you are not a United States citizen or national, you may be deported by virtue of
your plea of guilty.

8. You must wait 3 -10 years to expunge a first offense. 2C:52-3 and even if
expunged certain parties and employers may still see your guilty plea.

9. You can be sued by the victim for the victims cost of defending the case.

10. You may be required to do Community Service.

11. Additional penalties may apply if ordered by the judge, some common orders
include:  You are not to shop at a certain stores, you are not to frequent certain
areas such as within 500 feet of a school etc.

12.  Even if you expunge your record many people will still be able to see your arrest
or conviction as the expungment does not erase your record it only seals it.  Your
arrest or conviction can be seen on the internet through private data collection
websites thus the importance to get the best result today.

12. Increased costs for homeowners, apartment, life insurance and car insurance for
the rest of your life with many insurance companies refusing to insure you due to the
fact that you are considered a "poor moral hazard." The increased cost in insurance
alone over the next 5 years can in most cases easily pay for the cost of
representation thus, we can save you even more money than what our fee will cost
you today.

13.  If you are an immigrant: A criminal conviction can lead to your removal and
deportation.  Immigrants include legal and no legal VISA and green card holders.  
With the Trump Administration deportations are increasing with people convicted of
criminal offenses being the priority for deportation and removal.  In the past
deportations were generally limited to people convicted of serious crimes or specific
enumerated crimes such as shoplifting, theft, drug distribution, assault, domestic
violence etc.  (CIMT crimes) Because Attorney Aalsberg is also noted immigration
lawyer he can help navigate this legal mind field.
