Assault charge follows incident at New Jersey hotel

Often, those who are the witness to an injury are in a state of shock. As such, they may not be fully aware of the implications of information provided to law enforcement officials in the immediate aftermath of an incident that resulted in a serious injury. In fact, a woman now faces an assault charge, among others, following a New Jersey incident in which she allegedly told officers that she accidentally stabbed a man.

The event that led to the woman's arrest reportedly happened at a motel on a day in early June. According to reports, police were requested at the scene at approximately 6 a.m. Officers claim that they discovered a 42-year-old man from out of state who was suffering from a knife wound in his back.

The man received treatment while at the scene but was also flown to the hospital. He is reportedly in stable condition. A 27-year-old woman at the scene reportedly told officers that she was playing with the knife when she accidentally stabbed the man. Many details about the case are unclear, including whether the victim and the woman know each other.

In addition to a charge of aggravated assault, the woman is also charged with possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose as a result of the New Jersey incident. In the aftermath of an incident such as this when facing questioning from law enforcement officers, many people may not fully understand that information they provide could further complicate their legal situation. As such, it is advisable to decline to participate in questioning with police officers and other officials without the presence of an experienced criminal defense attorney.
