Initial Tier Hearing & Tier Reduction Hearings
MAYNARD LAW OFFICE, LLC
A sex offender is given a “tier level” in New Jersey. The judge decides a person’s tier level at a court hearing. There are three tier levels: Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3. A person’s tier level determines who receives notification of his/her sex offender status. Also, tier level affects whether a person’s information is put on the Internet registry.
It is vital to consult with an experienced sex offense lawyer before your tier hearing. Our law firm has successfully argued against proposed tier levels. As a result, some clients have not been put on the Internet registry or were placed on a tier level lower than that requested by the prosecutor.
Registrants who move to a new county in NJ may also be “re-tiered.” Our law firm has represented clients at these hearings. In many cases, we have also successfully argued that a client should be given a lower tier level than what the Prosecutor proposed.
Lawyers at Maynard Law Office, LLC examine each client’s case and try to obtain the lowest possible tier level. Our law firm is committed to fighting for the rights of those on Megan’s Law. So call us at (973) 540-0054 for a free consultation!
