What Offenses Are Municipal Court Offenses?
Municipal Court offenses are considered to be “quasi-criminal,” because they can range from traffic and motor vehicle tickets all the way to minor “offenses” called “disorderly persons offenses” that can be found in the Criminal Code. Even still, offenses in Municipal Court can have severe consequences, including DMV points, large fines, loss of your driver’s license, insurance surcharges, license suspension, and jail sentences.
You also must know that despite the fact that these municipal court cases sound minor, you are still entitled to many of the same protections you have in criminal matters. Most importantly, you are still entitled to the presumption of innocence, and the municipal prosecutor has the burden of proving guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
