Contempt Charges

Have you been charged with harassment and contempt in Clifton or Paterson? Do you need a lawyer to fight to get these charges dismissed? Contact us now for immediate assistance. Here is a case we recently handled for a client facing these charges with great success.

Our client was charged with violating a restraining order (contempt) in violation of N.J.S.A. 2C:29-9(b) and harassment in violation of N.J.S.A. 2C:33-4A for allegedly calling the victim in the middle of the night (very inconvenient hours likely to cause annoyance of alarm).

Our client was adamant that he did not call her and we prepared a comprehensive defense strategy. The alleged phone calls were made from a blocked number so the victim was not able to identify any number that the calls came from. We subpoenaed all of our clients phone records (his cell phone, house line, best friend’s cell phone, etc.) to show the prosecutor that none of the phones our client had access to had been used in the alleged offense. In addition, our client’s friend was an alibi to show that, at the time the victim said the calls were made, our client was with his friend and not making the phone calls.

Based on the evidence we provided, the alleged victim decided that she no longer wanted to proceed and testify at trial. As a result, the charges were completely dismissed against our client.
