In the Matter of Magid

New Jersey Supreme Court
139 N.J. 449 (1995)

  • Written by Haley Gintis, JD

Facts

On September 25, 1993, First Assistant Prosecutor of Gloucester County Lawrence Magid (defendant) assaulted his girlfriend, KP. KP, who also worked at the prosecutor’s office, suffered a black eye and bruising after Magid punched her, knocked her to the ground, and began kicking her. Although the attack was harmful, it ended quickly. Magid was terminated from the prosecutor’s office following the incident. On September 28, Magid was charged with assault and later pleaded guilty. Magid has no previous contact with the criminal-justice system prior to the incident with KP. As part of his sentence, Magid was placed on probation, fined, and was ordered to have no contact with KP. Magid was also ordered to continue treatment for drug and alcohol issues. Following Magid’s criminal conviction, New Jersey’s disciplinary review board (DRP) held a disciplinary hearing and concluded that Magid had engaged in unethical conduct. Four members of the DRP recommended that Magid be reprimanded publicly. Two members of the DRP recommended that Magid be reprimanded privately. The New Jersey Supreme Court then conducted an independent review of the appropriate disciplinary action.
