Questions About Your Court Summons

Court Appearances at the Pine Beach Municipal Court
In the state of New Jersey, all criminal charges and certain non-criminal charges, such as DWI's, require a court hearing. If you are required to come to court, the “court appearance required” box on your Pine Beach Municipal Court summons will be checked. Although you can enter a guilty plea with the Court Administrator ahead of time, doing so will not excuse you from a required court appearance.
It is best to show up early for your hearing and check in with the court staff, who will instruct you on how to proceed. Remember to shut off or silence your cell phone and make sure to stay quiet until it is your turn to speak.
If you are pleading not guilty, it is beneficial to hire a lawyer to handle your case. Having a lawyer means you can request a postponement, giving you time to prepare a better defense. Your lawyer can also help you if you wish to talk to the Prosecutor about a plea agreement. This is an attempt for your lawyer to negotiate with the prosecutor and settle your case without going in front of the judge.
