Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Criminal Defense In Clifton, New Jersey

In New Jersey, what is the penalty if you are found in possession of unauthorized prescription drugs?

In the Garden State, if you are found in possession of any amount of an unauthorized prescription drug, it is considered a third degree crime. The penalty for possession of an unauthorized prescription drug includes a fine of up to $35,000 and a prison term of between three and five years.

In New Jersey, are there any limits to what law enforcement officers can look for if they get a search warrant?

When a legal search warrant is issued to law enforcement officers, there are limitations to that warrant. A search warrant gives permission to law enforcement officers to conduct a physical search of a certain location to search for specific things. The law enforcement officers are not legally permitted to search outside the parameters that are set forth in the search warrant. As part of the search warrant application, law enforcement officers are required to demonstrate probable cause based on viable information they have received. All legal search warrants must be signed by a judge. If there is a situation where law enforcement officers conduct a search without a legal search warrant, then the actual search itself — and anything obtained during the illegal search — is presumed to be unreasonable. If you or a loved one has additional questions about the legal parameters of a search warrant, speak with an experienced criminal defense attorney at Camili & Capo, PA.
