New Jersey Criminal Defense Attorney Sheds Light on Recent Changes in New Jerseys Conditional Dismissal Laws.


Clifton, New Jersey (PRWEB) December 14, 2013

New Jersey Criminal Defense Attorney, Peter G. Aziz, Esq., of The Law Offices of Peter G. Aziz & Associates LLC, compares & contrasts the alternatives for both first time and habitual offenders. Mr. Aziz explains how programs like Pretrial Intervention (N.J.S.A. 2C:43-12) and New Jersey`s Conditional Discharge statute (N.J.S.A 2C:36A), provide a slap on the wrist alternative for defendants.

On September 6th, 2013, a bill was signed establishing a conditional dismissal program for cases concerning disorderly person offenses under municipal court jurisdiction. The new law will take effect January 4, 2014, and will create a municipal version of the program. Formerly, such interventions were only available for cases adjudicated at the Superior Court level, or for drug offense cases heard in the municipal courts. This of course is great news for first time offenders at the municipal level.

Mr. Aziz says, “Our firm deals with conditional discharge cases on a daily basis, for the State to allow conditional discharge at a municipal level is something extraordinary.” The Northern New Jersey based law firm is a general practice firm that focuses on Criminal Defense Law. In addition, the firm also specializes in Real Estate Law and Family Law.

Attorney Peter G. Aziz states, It is important for each client to be educated on the type of options he or she has when it comes to their place in the Criminal Justice system. It is a nerve wrecking experience, and the only way to calm those nerves is to educate the client on his or her alternatives; I cannot stress the importance of this enough.

The most common divisionary program is New Jersey`s Pre-trial Intervention Program, or PTI (N.J.S.A 2C:43-12). This program is usually offered to first time offenders, and is a viable alternative to full prosecution under the law.

Attorney Aziz states, The goal of this program is to deter the defendant from committing future crimes, and if completed successfully, the defendant will not have a criminal record thereby avoiding the high cost of going through a lengthy trial.

The defendant is usually required to complete rehabilitory programs for issues such as anger management and drug or alcohol abuse. Mr. Aziz stresses the notion, this program is a great way for a defendant to walk away from having a criminal record, all while changing their life for the better by actually providing the client with help for their issues.

Another alternative or option is a conditional discharge, also referred to as a Chapter 36A. This program is often applied towards first time minor drug offenders. Mr. Aziz states, Chapter 36A is in fact a divisionary program designed to simultaneously offer the offender a slap on the wrist and deter the offender from committing another drug offense by requiring the offender to participate in drug testing.

Often times, minor offenders take advantage of this option because the program requires you to be drug-free and offense-free for 6 months to 1 year while being on probation. Upon successful completion of the program, the offense will be expunged from the offenders record completely. Attorney Aziz stresses the fact that attaining a conditional discharge is in fact difficult, Since granting a conditional discharge is entirely within the discretion of the judges ruling on a particular case. However, a knowledgeable and effective criminal defense attorney will not have a problem procuring one if the defendant meets the criteria.

When charged with a criminal offense it is important to know the rights afforded to you under the law. To discuss whether or not you are eligible for a Pre-trial intervention, a Conditional Discharge, other alternative programs, or your rights with respect to any legal proceeding, please contact The Law Offices of Peter G.

Emotional Carnage – Queendom.com Releases Results of New Study on The Impact of PMS On Womens Emotional Health


Montreal, Canada (PRWEB) December 14, 2013

Cramps, bloating, and acne will often leave women wanting to curl up on their couch for a week each month, but according to 1,893 women who took Queendom.coms PMS Test, the physical impact of Premenstrual Syndrome is not as painful as the emotional one. When there are websites dedicated entirely to taking a light-hearted look at PMS (jokes and quizzes included), its an attempt to find humor, camaraderie, anything to help add meaning to an often misunderstood and chaotic time in womens lives.

A study conducted by Queendom.com attempted to understand the aspects of PMS that tend to be the most problematic. PMS and PMDD (Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder, a more severe and debilitating form of Premenstrual Syndrome) are not officially part of the DSM-IV, the diagnostic manual of psychological disorders. Yet, for many women, its the fluctuations in mood and thinking that tend to cause the most difficulties.

Assessing various symptoms and their level of severity, Queendoms analysis of nearly 2,000 women reveals that:

Uruguay Legalizes Marijuana, Will Other Countries Follow?


Miami, FL (PRWEB) December 14, 2013

As reported by CNN.com on December 10, seen here, Uruguay has taken steps to begin the legalization of marijuana, making it the first country in the world that would decriminalize the drug completely. This move will allow the government to completely regulate, tax, and sell the drug, and in so doing undercut the profit that narcotraffickers and drug lords have been capitalizing upon for years, although the potential social benefits have not gone unnoticed, not the least of which is a change in the way drug detox is viewed.

“This is not about being free and open. It’s a logical step. We want to take users away from clandestine business. We don’t defend marijuana or any other addiction. But worse than any drug is trafficking, said Jose Mujica, the President of Uruguay to The Guardian.

With few people seeing a point in continuing the War on Drugs anymore, this marks a monumental shift in the paradigm of how people view drugs. The United States could stand to save just over $ 13 billion every year if they were to follow suit in a similar fashion as Uruguay. Legalization has been another ongoing battle, and although it has its opponents, people are beginning to change their minds, looking for new sources of revenue.

With this new change coming into effect, this could mean that there will be similar changes in other countries, thereby promoting an end to the War on Drugs once and for all. An ongoing conflict since 1971, it has cost a trillion dollars and the lives of many people. The only effect that the War on Drugs has seemingly had is to drive prices down and increase the purity of the drugs being distributed while actually increasing the strength of the drug cartels, which, of course, is the complete opposite of its intended goal, as evidenced by the increasing numbers of people entering to drug detox centers for treatment and countless news reports over the decades.

When someone is struggling with a drug addiction, it is crucial that they seek out the professional counseling and assistance offered at a qualified detox center such as Harbor Village. A 24/7 medically supervised facility, Harbor Village allows their clients to undergo private drug treatment in a luxurious and secure, state-of-the art environment. Located in South Florida, clients are welcomed with upscale accommodations including a suite with satellite television, 30,000 square feet of outdoor lounge area, spa, salon, massage and acupuncture services, Internet and NetFlix access, nutritious, gourmet dining, private limo pickup and transportation to anywhere in Florida and a results proven plan for recovery.

Drug abuse can create many health issues and cause you to lose everything. We feel that this is the first step toward creating a better future where drug addiction and drug abuse is treated as the health problem that it is rather than just resorting to incarceration. Its time for a new beginning, said Robert Niznik, Harbor Village CEO.

Toledo Treatment Center Launches Initiative to Decrease Number of Drug-Related Deaths


Toledo, OH (PRWEB) December 14, 2013

A Toledo treatment center is announcing a new initiative that would help decrease the number of drug-related deaths in Ohio through the help and support available at Drug Addiction Treatment Centers.

Based upon statistical data, drug overdose deaths continue to be a public health crisis in Ohio with a 40 percent increase in the number of deaths from 1999 to 2011. Unintentional drug overdoses caused 1,765 deaths to Ohio residents in 2011 This is the highest number of deaths on record for drug overdose and surpasses the previous highest number (1,544) in 2010 by 14.3 percent.

In 2011, nearly 5 (4.8) Ohioans died every day from unintentional drug overdose, or one every 5 hours. Unintentional drug overdose continues to be the leading cause of injury-related death in Ohio, ahead of motor vehicle traffic crashes, suicide and falls. This trend began in 2007 and continues through 2011. Pain medications (opioids) and multiple drug use are the largest contributors to the epidemic.

Drug Addiction Treatment Center looks to attack the underlying causes of drug-related deaths through their program mixing detoxification, life skills, therapy and counseling.

Cocaine, heroin, Oxycontin and benzodiazepines are just a few of the drugs that the treatment center helps people put in their past. Alcoholism, a disease that destroys individuals as well as families, is addressed through the substance abuse treatment centers programs.

Entering the Toledo rehab center gives clients a new chance to be responsible members of society once again. They come to find themselves, discover new levels of self-esteem, and a spirituality that works.

Boston, MA (PRWEB) December 13, 2013

With the 2014 New Year rapidly approaching Diet Recommendations has revealed a complimentary detox diet plan that can be implemented before, during, and after the holiday season.

“There is a long list of health problems associated with the need to detox the body of dangerous toxins while at the same time balancing healthy bacteria in the gut. Some of the problems people face when they are overloaded with toxins is gas and bloating, constipation, acid reflux, skin problems, headaches, urinary tract infections, trouble sleeping, an inability to lose weight, and heavy sugar cravings,” said one of the research consultants from Diet Recommendations.

The detox diet plan guide reveals the top 10 detox foods that will help to restore balance in the intestines while at the same time detoxifying the body.

“Many people like to start their year off with a detox cleanse to restore and balance their health at the beginning of the new year. The enormous benefit that comes with consuming these detox gut cleansing foods is weight loss that occurs naturally when toxins are released from fat cells and internal gut flora is restored and balanced,” said Mr. Porter from Diet Recommendations.

He continued to say, “We recommend this detox diet plan because of the simplicity involved, and the fact that it focuses on maximizing health and restoring balance rather than some of the extreme detox diets we have seen out there.

The detox diet plan and body cleanse guide is available for a limited time at http://dietrecommendations.com/detox-diet-cleanse.
