Criminal Defense Attorney

The Law Offices of Leon Matchin, LLC provides criminal defense to those charged with criminal complaints throughout central New Jersey. Common criminal offenses include but are not limited to:


Indictable Criminal Offense

In New Jersey, indictable criminal offenses are leveled against an alleged criminal offender that exposes him or her to more than 6 months of incarceration while alleged offenders of non-indictable offenses – disorderly persons and petty disorderly persons offenses – are generally exposed to less than six months of jail. Indictable offenses are crimes of the 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th degree while non-indictable offenses are called disorderly persons or petty disorderly persons offenses.

Indictable charges are handled in the Superior Court within the County that the alleged offense was committed while non-indictable offenses are handled in the Municipal Court within the City, Township or Borough where the alleged offense was committed. Also a defendant is entitled to a trial by jury in an indictable offense but before then the matter must be submitted to a grand jury who may pass a no bill – refusal to indict – on the matter if they deem that to be warranted.
