Cocaine use may be evident in one's fingerprint

New Jersey residents might be interested to know that the way law enforcement operates in regards to certain drug users could change in the coming decade as a new test reportedly makes identifying those who have used cocaine simple. Instead of taking fluid samples or waiting for a lab to analyze results, this drug test works with just a fingerprint.

Defenses for sexual assault charges

For New Jersey residents who are facing sexual assault charges, the consequences can be particularly severe. For example, a person who is convicted on these charges may potentially face a prison sentence, fines and may be required to register as a sex offender for a certain number of years. Depending on the circumstances, there are a number of defense strategies that could result in a dismissal of the charges or even reduce the severity of consequences.

The incentives of negotiating plea bargains

If a New Jersey resident has been charged with a criminal violation, they may have their case taken to trial. However, it may be possible for a defendant to negotiate a plea bargain. About 90 percent of criminal convictions stem from plea bargains, and there are incentives for all the involved parties to engage in such negotiations.
