New Jersey police say they’ve solved assault case after 2 years
Violent encounters are situations most people wish to avoid. Unfortunately, there are times when an attack may occur and a person must retaliate in self-defense. New Jersey residents know that assault is a very serious crime, and no one should be wrongfully sentenced for crimes they did not commit. Legal proceedings are intended to ensure that those involved in this type of situation receive a fair trial.
A New Jersey man was arrested for alleged assault crimes dating back almost two years. Authorities reportedly believed the man to have left the state and been residing elsewhere since the 2011 incident. His purported participation in an assault left two people injured, and police had warrants for his arrest on multiple charges. Recent information reportedly led authorities to the man’s location where he was taken into custody.
The man now faces serious allegations including aggravated assault and multiple weapons charges. He is required to appear in court where he will have the ability to disclose any information that may help his situation. Due to the length of time that has passed since the alleged crime, the accused may which to go over the incident and any purported involvement he may or may not have had.
The accused man has the ability to present relevant evidence relating to his situation that may be helpful in his case. He also has a right to make a formal request to review evidence the prosecution may have obtained pertaining to the assault case. Gaining an understanding of applicable New Jersey laws and criminal procedures relating to his case may pay dividends as the case proceeds. Until – and only if – he is found guilty, the man is deemed innocent of the allegations brought against him.
