Every state establishes deadlines for filing legal claims in the state. These deadlines are called statutes of limitations. These statutes vary from one state to another, and each deadline depends upon the type of claim that is being filed. There are statutes of limitations for both civil claims and criminal claims.

New Jersey also has exceptions to the statute of limitations. Crimes of manslaughter or murder do not have legal deadlines for filing a charge; these charges can be filed years after the alleged crime occurred. Another exception to the statute of limitations is if the person who is being charged with a criminal offense is also facing pending prosecution for the same criminal conduct.

In most cases, law enforcement officers do not need to obtain a warrant in order to make an arrest. That being said, law enforcement officers must have a good reason for the arrest, known as “probable cause”. To demonstrate probable cause, law enforcement must believe that a crime has been committed and that the person they want to arrest has committed that crime. There are some situations where law enforcement officers must seek an arrest warrant, including when officers want to arrest a person at his or her home.
A plea bargain is a legal, binding agreement between a prosecutor and a defendant which is quite common in criminal cases. Under a plea bargain, a defendant agrees to plead guilty to the charges in exchange for something from the prosecution. For example, if a defendant agrees to plead guilty, a prosecutor may agree to reduce the charge to a lesser offense. Or the prosecutor may agree to a lesser sentence agreed to by the defendant. In some cases, the prosecutor may agree to drop one or more of the charges. Plea bargains are preferred in many criminal cases because they provide both the prosecutor and the defendant some degree of control over the outcome of the case, and they can be reached rather quickly. It is important to note that, in a plea bargain, both sides have to agree to the terms.
