About Pennington, NJ

Pennington is a borough located in Mercer County, New Jersey. Pennington was originally called Queenstown, in honor of Queen Anne. The borough got its present name as a derivation of “Pennytown”, which was an insult used to mark the community’s small size and relative insignificance. The present-day name also derived from Edward Pennington, the Surveyor-General of Pennsylvania whose father-in-law had served as governor of the Province of West Jersey. Pennington was formally established in 1890 from portions of Hopewell Township. A close-knit community, Pennington hosts numerous parades and events to mark annual holidays such as Memorial Day, the Fourth of July, and Christmas.

Frequently Asked Questions about Criminal Defense in Pennington, NJ

FAQ: What is the difference between probation and parole?

Probation is a criminal sentence that is imposed following a criminal conviction, while parole is a program in which an offender is released from prison for the remaining duration of his or her sentence. However, both programs are largely similar. Offenders are required to abide by the conditions of their probation or parole, including reporting to a probation/parole officer. Violating any of the conditions of probation or parole can lead to consequences ranging from the imposition of more strict conditions of probation/parole to requiring the offender to report to jail or prison to serve out the remainder of his or her sentence.

FAQ: If the person who called the police doesn’t want to testify in court, does that mean my charges will be dismissed?

Not necessarily. Once a person reports a crime, prosecution of that crime is largely out of his or her hands. When a complaining witness’s testimony is the only or strongest evidence of guilt the prosecution has, the witness’s refusal to testify may convince the prosecution to drop the case. However, the prosecution may decide to proceed even without a complainant’s testimony if the state has other evidence of the defendant’s guilt. And for domestic violence and sex crimes, the prosecution is usually prohibited from dismissing the case even if the victim declines to cooperate or testify or wants the charges dropped.
