Avon by the Sea Criminal Attorney: Avon by the Sea Municipal Court

Avon by the Sea is a small beachfront borough in Monmouth County comprised of about 2,000 people and directly bordered by each Belmar, Neptune, and Bradley Beach. It is accessible through Route 71 and Ocean Avenue. Because Avon by the Sea is such a beach oriented borough and because it is surrounded by so many similar communities, as the summer rolls around each year, traffic and general congestion begin to rapidly increase. This huge population spike during summer brings Avon by the Sea's population of 2,000 all the way up to 10,000 on average. Along with this population spike, and increasingly problematic traffic, comes a crackdown by local law enforcement, striving to maintain the peace and quiet that Avon by the Sea residents have grown accustomed to throughout the year. This crackdown is usually effectuated through an increased number of disorderly persons charges, traffic violations, and DWIs. Disorderly persons offenses refer to a broad category of offenses with some of the more popularly issued being disorderly conduct (N.J.S. 2C:33-2), trespass (N.J.S. 2C: 18-3), criminal mischief (N.J.S. 2C: 17-3), simple assault (N.J.S. 2C: 12-1), use or possession of a fake ID (N.J.S. 2C: 28-7), underage drinking (N.J.S. 2C:33-15), possession of drugs or drug paraphernalia (N.J.S. 2C:35-10 and N.J.S. 2C: 36-2), and resisting arrest (N.J.S. 2C:29-2). Penalties resulting from a disorderly persons conviction can be very serious and my include significant monetary fines, jail time, enrollment into community service programs, and other repercussions.
