Recently a Clifton man was arrested for an attempted murder charge. Allegedly the defendant tried to attack a bicyclist with a machete. The defendant supposedly drove past the bicyclist and told him “I’m going to show you how to” and thereafter swung the machete at the bicyclist’s head and neck. The bicyclist defended himself against a couple of the slashes, and supposedly nearly lost his middle finger.

An attempted murder charge is a very serious crime. An attempted murder charge is classified as a first degree crime. This means the defendant above faces a maximum of twenty (20) years in a New Jersey state prison. The minimum he faces for this charge is ten (10) years in prison. He can also be fined up to $200,000.00. In addition to this charge, he faces a second degree aggravated assault charge. This felony carries up to ten (10) years in state prison, and a minimum of five (5) years. This carries a fine of up to $150,000.00. Both charges carry a presumption of incarceration. This means that if the defendant pleads guilty or is found guilty after a trial, then it is presumed at sentencing that the judge will sentence the defendant to prison time.
