Curious traffic stop nets drug charges in Lacey Township

Drug charges continue to play a significant role in traffic stops throughout New Jersey. A 56-year-old driver from Lanoka Harbor and a 39-year-old passenger from Forked River were pulled over by a local patrolman in Lacey Township last month at about 11:00 p.m. Authorities claim the vehicle was stopped for "careless driving," though no description was offered what actions the patrolman actually observed that lead him to take action. Drug charges soon followed.

Man charged in sexual assault of 10-year-old Princeton Township girl

In a recent New Jersey case, a 29-year-old man was arrested and charged with sexual assaulting a 10-year-old girl.

He is alleged to be involved in a 'pill mill' operation which freely dispenses painkillers, such as oxycodone, on demand. Now facing a first-degree murder charge, it is very likely that this physician may require the services of criminal defense counsel.
