Non-White Collar Crimes

Non white-collar criminal offenses are those classes of violent and non-violent illegal activities which principally involve illegal possession or sale of controlled dangerous substances (drugs), illegal possession of dangerous weapons, robbery, homicide, arson, aggravated assault, sexual assault and other offenses charged under the New Jersey or Federal Criminal Statutes.  These crimes violate state and federal law and are usually prosecuted in the New Jersey Superior Court or the Federal Court for the District of New Jersey, depending upon what agency is investigating the allegations.
