New Jersey law divides criminal charges into two broad categories. Disorderly persons charges are the equivalent of misdemeanors. While they are not as serious, they can result in hefty fines, jail time, community service, a criminal record, job loss, and other consequences. Crimes can also be considered indictable crimes, which are the equivalent of felonies in other states. These crimes are the more serious as conviction can result in at least one year in jail or prison as well as a loss of rights, difficulty finding a job, and much more.
