Setting Bail for Domestic Violence Charges

February 25, 2014

 New Jersey takes domestic violence cases very seriously and thus the state has set up special bail conditions and rules for defendants facing criminal charges involving domestic violence. For instance, violations of domestic violence restraining orders are reviewed with the same severity as serious violent indictable offenses. Moreover, if a defendant has been arrested and charged with an indictable domestic violence offense, only a New Jersey Superior Court judge will set the bail. Under N.J.S.A. 2C:29-9(b), non-indictable domestic violence bail matters should be handled by a Superior Court judge, unless otherwise approved by the Assignment Judge.

In domestic violence cases some special rules apply:

If you have been arrested or charged with a crime of domestic violence including harassment, simple assault, or terroristic threats then it is important you know what you are facing and your options. Contact our office at (908) 838-0150 to speak with an experienced domestic violence lawyer who can answer your questions and address your concerns during a free initial consultation.
