Metuchen Borough

Traffic and Criminal Offenses

Town Overview

Located in the heart of central New Jersey, Metuchen captures the spirit of “small town USA.” Metuchen’s residents often walk or jog down its tree-lined streets, shop in the quaint Main Street stores, frequent the many playgrounds and parks (Middlesex Greenway, Dismal Swamp, Thomas Pond Park, Centennial Park), and gather at the annual events like parades, the arts & crafts festival and the “country” fair. Metuchenites often get to know their local merchants and get personalized service they find missing at large chain stores in the nearby shopping malls. Aside from its “neighborly” small-town friendliness, Metuchen’s age differentiates it from its more modern suburban neighboring towns. From the Victorian era horse watering trough on Middlesex Avenue to its many charming restored historic homes, Metuchen retains a historic character and timeless stability. Also known as “The Brainy Borough” because of the many professionals, artists, educators and literary figures (and now even a former Governor) who lived here, Metuchen developed primarily due to its location and access to key transportation routes. From Metuchen it is easy to commute to New York City by train or bus, or to Newark, Trenton, or nearby Rutgers University in New Brunswick. Many offenses in Metuchen occur in residential areas. The Metuchen Borough Police maintain speed traps and check points on a fairly regular basis.

Metuchen Borough Municipal Court

The Metuchen Borough Municipal Court only hears misdemeanor criminal offenses and traffic offense cases. In some instances, individuals charged with more serious offenses will have their initial court appearance in Metuchen Borough Municipal Court before their matter is transferred to the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office in New Brunswick.  A conviction for a violation like DWI, driving while suspended, or possession of marijuana can tarnish your record for a long time.  While the penalties of monetary fines, loss of driving privileges, community service, probation and sometimes even jail can be life-altering, the stigma of a having a criminal or motor vehicle conviction on your permanent record can haunt you for years to come.  Our office fights to avoid these outcomes.  We handle all Metuchen Borough Municipal Court charges including Underage Drinking, Possession of Marijuana, Shoplifting, Disorderly Conduct, Criminal Mischief, Speeding, Reckless Driving, Racing, DWI, Refusal, driving without insurance and driving while suspended or revoked.  We also help you seek the help you need if your actions were the result of a drug or alcohol addiction.  If you are being prosecuted for a criminal charge or traffic ticket like one of these, give our offices a call and tell us about your situation.
