Legal Time Limits For Filing Criminal Charges In New Jersey
The legal time limits for filing civil claims or criminal charges in the courts are known as statutes of limitations. Every state establishes its own statutes based upon the type of claim that is being filed or the type of criminal offense that is being charged.
In New Jersey, the statute of limitations for a prosecutor to file a criminal charge is dependent upon the type of crime that is alleged. For misdemeanors, including a petty offense or a disorderly persons offense, the statute of limitations in New Jersey is one year from the time the crime was allegedly committed. Felonies including bribery, official misconduct, and other offenses have a statute of limitations of seven years. The statute of limitations for other felonies is five years.
There are no statutory limits for crimes of murder and manslaughter. Individuals may be charged with these crimes at any time, including years after the crime was committed. If a person is fleeing justice, the statute of limitations does not run. The statute of limitations also does not run if the defendant is facing pending prosecution for the same conduct.

Frequently Asked Questions About Criminal Offenses In North Hanover Township, New Jersey
When someone has been charged with a crime, that individual gives the court something of value such as cash, property, or a bond as a way to guarantee to the court that they will appear in court when ordered. This item of value is known as bail. Bail is determined by a judge. However, if the individual charged wishes to be released prior to the judge’s bail determination, the individual may pay the standard bail amount for their crime. This standard amount is set in the station house’s bail schedule. If the individual is unable to pay the bail amount that is set by the bail schedule, they may ask the judge to lower the bail amount. If the individual is ordered to appear in court but does not appear, the court may keep the bail and issue a warrant for the individual’s arrest.
When a prosecutor brings criminal charges against an individual in the United States, they must prove the defendant is guilty “beyond a reasonable doubt”. This standard of proof regarding the defendant’s guilt is intentionally very high, and the burden stands with the prosecution, not the defendant. During a criminal trial, the defendant is not required to present any defense of the charges. However, most defendants — through their criminal defense attorneys — choose to present a defense that is intended to raise reasonable doubt, which then reduces the strength of the prosecution’s case. If you have questions regarding reasonable doubt, the presumption of innocence, or other matters pertaining to the charges filed against you, contact one of the experienced criminal defense attorneys at the Davis Law Firm, LLC — our criminal defense team offers a free, no-obligation consultation.
