New Jersey Carjacking Lawyer Adam M. Lustberg Explains Carjacking Charges
New Jersey carjacking lawyer Adam M. Lustberg (https://www.lustberglaw.com/carjacking-lawyer/) releases a new article that explains carjacking charges in Hackensack, New Jersey. The lawyer mentions that in most carjacking charges, the defendant is accused of using a gun to terrorize, injure, or kill the victim. This means that carjacking charges are usually combined with another criminal charge.
“Because carjacking usually involves other crimes of violence, the penalties for a carjacking conviction in New Jersey may deprive you of your freedom for decades – or even for the rest of your life. It is critical that you have a skilled NJ criminal defense attorney who is equipped to build a strong strategy on your behalf and who will work diligently toward what is in your best interests,” says the New Jersey carjacking lawyer.
The lawyer explains that New Jersey is known for its strict laws involving violence and threats of violence. The state also imposes some of the most severe carjacking punishments in the country. If someone is convicted of carjacking, they could face 10 to 30 years in state prison.
Attorney Adam M. Lustberg also adds that New Jersey’s mandatory sentencing laws state that a person convicted of carjacking is not eligible for parole until they serve at least 85 percent of their sentence. If someone was killed during the carjacking, the accused could be facing a life sentence.
In the article, the lawyer discusses the New Jersey Carjacking Statute or N.J.S.A. 2C:15-2. He mentions that N.J.S.A. 2C:15-2 is an act that shall be deemed to be “in the course of committing an unlawful taking of a motor vehicle” if it occurs during an attempt to commit the unlawful act of taking a motor vehicle.
The defense attorney explains that carjacking is a first-degree crime and if the accused is convicted, they may be sentenced to an ordinary term of imprisonment between 10 and 30 years. Carjacking may be described as taking a motor vehicle that is in the lawful possession of another person by using force or threats.
Lastly, attorney Lustberg emphasizes the importance of having a skilled lawyer if someone is accused of carjacking. Having an experienced lawyer may be able to help the accused protect their rights and their freedom.
