If I’m Arrested In Kearny, NJ Do I Appear In Kearny Municipal Court?

Well it depends – just because you were arrested in the town of Kearny does not automatically mean you will have to appear in Kearny Municipal Court. For instance, if you have been charged with a more serious indictable crime, such as a robbery in Kearny it will be sent to Hudson County Superior Court. The Superior Court is located in Jersey City and all new felony charges are sent there to be screened where you will appear for an initial hearing called “CJP” Central Judicial Processing Court. Once there, the County Prosecutor’s Office will decide to either send your case to Grand Jury in Superior Court or downgrade it back to the Kearny Municipal Court to be handled there in it’s entirety. An experienced criminal lawyer can appear in CJP and often times greatly increase your chances of having the matter remanded or resolved through a diversion program at the county so that you avoid a conviction.
