New Jersey man facing charges of violent crime

A local man is being held on possible charges of assault. He was only recently released from jail when authorities responded to another alleged assault at a New Jersey residence. The allegation of violent crime could cause the man to face additional jail time.

Previously, this individual had been charged with unlawful possession of a weapon, tampering with a witness, contempt and other charges. He served several days in the county jail for these charges. In the recent late April incident, the man was taken to police headquarters under allegations of a domestic dispute that resulted in possible charges of aggravated assault with serious bodily injury. 

Police also report that the man became unruly while being held in the jail. He allegedly threw urine soaked towels while in police custody. He was fitted with a spit hood and placed in handcuffs. The alleged towel throwing incident may result in possible further charges. 

In New Jersey, a violent crime such as aggravated assault with serious bodily injury can carry stiff penalties, especially for a person with a prior history of criminal charges. The man has a right to a fair hearing, during which he may defend himself against the charges. The burden of proof will be on the local prosecutors, who must prove their case by a show of evidence. A person similarly charged with a violent crime may also wish to build a strong and effective defense against the charges. Many people choose not to go it alone, and instead choose to utilize the services of an experienced criminal defense attorney.
