College Crime Charges in Atlantic County, NJ

Atlantic County, New Jersey, is home to two higher education institutions and five college campuses. Being accused of a crime on any of these college campuses or the surrounding areas can have a serious impact on your future.

Atlantic Cape Community College Crimes

Atlantic Cape Community College is an open-enrollment school with a student population of over 8,000 that serves both Atlantic County and neighboring Cape May County. Students from either county or outside the two counties may pursue an associate’s degree from the two-year college.

Through a partnership with Rutgers University in New Brunswick (Middlesex County), the school offers select bachelor’s degree coursework under the Rutgers at Atlantic Cape program.

Atlantic Cape Community College’s main campus location is on the Black Horse Pike in Mays Landing. The Mays Landing campus is also home to the dedicated Rutgers Building.

The junior college has a second Atlantic County Campus, the Charles D. Worthington Atlantic City campus, located on Bacharach Blvd. in Atlantic City. Students from Atlantic County may also choose to enroll in classes on the Cape May campus located on Court House-South Dennis Road in Cape May Court House.

As a two-year school, Atlantic Cape Community College doesn’t offer on-campus housing. Despite the lack of dorms, though, crimes still occur on campus and nearby.

Students often rent houses, rooms, or apartments in the areas surrounding ACCC’s campuses. The same crimes that are prevalent in college campus housing can also occur in Atlantic County apartment complexes and neighborhood rental homes heavily populated by students.

Many Atlantic Cape Community College students still live at home and make the commute to school each day. Even within Atlantic County, students may have to drive half an hour to 45 minutes to get to campus. Out-of-county students, such as those drawn to the school’s highly regarded culinary arts program, could easily drive over an hour each way to get to school. While commuters may be less likely to face charges over crimes that occur in student housing settings, they could end up in trouble for reckless or careless driving offenses or for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Stockton University College Crime Charges

Atlantic County, New Jersey, is also home to a four-year public university. Stockton University, formerly Stockton State College and Richard Stockton College of New Jersey, is located on Vera King Farris Drive in Galloway. The school reported a total enrollment of more than 9,000 students, with almost one-third of the student population coming from Atlantic County.

Stockton University offers two additional campus locations in Atlantic County, as well as two locations elsewhere in New Jersey. The Stockton University Atlantic City Campus encompasses the John F. Scarpa Academic Center on Atlantic Avenue and student residences at both Kesselman Hall on Boardwalk and Parkview Hall on Atlantic Avenue. In Hammonton, Stockton University's Kramer Hall offers courses through the Graduate and Continuing Studies program. Stockton students may also complete courses at the Stockton University at Manahawkin campus in Ocean County and the Sam Azeez Museum of Woodbine Heritage in Cape May County.

Around one-third of the student population at Stockton University lives on campus, and students also find off-campus housing nearby. Many instances of college crime occur in on-campus or off-campus student housing.

The Types of Offenses Our Atlantic County College Crime Lawyers Handle

Our Atlantic County college crime lawyers are well-versed in criminal charges of all kinds under New Jersey law and federal law. Examples of the types of charges our attorneys defend against include:

  • False identification crimes, including using a fake I.D. card
  • Disorderly persons or disorderly conduct offenses
  • Criminal mischief
  • Underage drinking
  • Underage tobacco use
  • Drug offenses, including possession and distribution
  • Driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI)
  • Reckless or careless driving
  • Harassment
  • Hazing
  • Assault charges, including sexual assault and other sex crimes
  • Stalking

For each criminal offense you’re accused of, you will be charged with a crime in a specific degree. Generally, first-degree crimes are the most severe indictable offenses, followed by second-degree, third-degree, and finally fourth-degree crimes.

Crimes charged as disorderly persons offenses are considered misdemeanors rather than indictable offenses or felonies in New Jersey. However, they still carry serious penalties.
