New Jersey Criminal Lawyers Schwartz Posnock

If you are under the age of 21, you may think that using a fake ID to get into a bar or club on the Jersey Shore, such as in Manasquan, Belmar, Seaside Heights, Long Branch, or other places is not a legally risky endeavor. Have you been caught using a fake ID along the Jersey Shore? Do not let your lapse in judgment permanently impact your future. Look instead for an experienced Municipal Court and Criminal attorney.

Most teens waiting in line to face the bouncers at Jersey Shore bars including, Bar Anticipation and D’Jais in Belmar, New Jersey, fail to realize that these bouncers are trained to spot fake IDs, and they often call the local police when they suspect an ID or driver’s license is fraudulent. Even if you are a college student with no past criminal record, police officers will not show sympathy or forgiveness while arresting you. The possession of a fake identification is technically known as Tampering with Public Records or Information, and is a criminal offense that carries a potential sentence of up to 6 months in the Country jail, a fine, loss of driving privileges, and a permanent criminal record.

An experienced attorney can successfully defend you or have the charge amended to a non-criminal town code ordinance violation with the only consequence being a fine. Eventually, with a criminal defense attorney’s help, you can expunge your conviction from your New Jersey criminal record.
