Lakehurst Municipal Court
Lakehurst may be best known as the site of the Hindenburg disaster but this Ocean County borough has a lot more going on these days. Its police department is quite active and routinely issues in excess of 500 criminal complaints in a given year. This is a significant number considering that the “Airship Capital of the World” only spans about one square mile and has 2,654 residents. If you were arrested or charged with a disorderly persons offense like marijuana possession, drug paraphernalia, harassment, lewdness, or simple assault, you should strongly consider contacting our firm. A conviction for an offense of this grade is nothing to take lightly as it exposes to fines, probation, or even up to 6 months in jail. The same would certainly be true if the offense you are up against is a felony crime of the first, second, third or a fourth degree. Even a serious motor vehicle ticket warrants the attention of a skilled defense attorney as your driving privileges could be placed into jeopardy if the summons is not handled properly.

Penalties for crimes like these hinge on whether the grade is a first degree, second degree, third degree or fourth degree.
