While being charged with possession of marijuana or related offenses as a juvenile may seem like no big deal, the ramifications of such a conviction can be far-reaching. It is unfortunate when the blunders of youth hinder opportunity in adulthood because even really good teens in New Jersey can make a mistake from time to time.

It is imperative to aggressively defend against accusations of sex crimes in order to mitigate the serious consequences and stigma associated with such a conviction.
