When an individual in New Jersey is charged with a crime, they can face very serious consequences. If the crime is considered a violent crime, a conviction will result in significant penalties. In 1997, New Jersey adopted the No Early Release Act wherein those convicted of certain first and second-degree offenses must serve 85% of their sentence before being eligible for parole.
In addition to the requirement of serving 85% of a sentence before being eligible for parole, those convicted pursuant to the No Early Release Act must serve up to 5 years of parole supervision after being paroled.
