Clinton Township Municipal Court

Posted By user, Uncategorized On October 25, 2020

Clinton Township covers 33 miles and is the third most populous municipality in Hunterdon County with 13,478 residents.  That said, it only makes sense that more than a few residents get charged with criminal and serious traffic offenses. Indeed, approximately 200 individuals get arrested for indictable offenses of the first, second, third or fourth degree crime, and another 600 are charged with some variety of disorderly persons offense every year. There are also more than 6,000 tickets for moving violations, including speeding, reckless driving, driving with a suspended license and possession of CDS in a motor vehicle. The best move for anyone facing charges in Clinton Township Municipal Court or at the Hunterdon County Superior Court is to enlist the services of a criminal defense attorney that is skilled in defending them and is well acquainted with the court system.
