These types of offenses have become even more complicated over the years. Now based on the bail reforms, a Defendant charged with a serious assaultive crime or a crime that is considered an “act of domestic violence” may be detained in the Monmouth County Jail, pending trial without bail. However, in order to do so, the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office would need to file what is known as a Detention Hearing. These types of hearings could and always should be contested. For more information on detention hearings please contact our Middletown Office at 732.858.6959.
