Criminal Charges in Belmar New Jersey
Although the Borough of Belmar only spans about 1.64 miles and has about 5,800 full-time residents, an extraordinarily high number of criminal charges are issued each year in the town. A major portion of the offenses are issued in the summer as Belmar is a popular vacation destination, especially for young adults. With busy beaches and thriving bars and clubs like D’Jais, the Boathouse, 9th Avenue Pier, and Connolly Station, there is a considerable opportunity for the type of trouble that goes with heavy alcohol consumption. This includes complaints/summons for disorderly conduct, simple assault, underage alcohol possession or consumption and fake ID/false identification. Another spike in arrests occurs during the St. Patrick’s Day Parade, which attracts over 200,000 spectators. Whatever criminal violation you are dealing with, we have decades of experience successfully appearing in Belmar Municipal Court.
