Park Rangers at Gunnison Beach in Sandy Hook Perceive Innocent Behavior As Lewd: Hiring an Experienced NJ Criminal Defense Lawyer Is Critical

New Jersey Criminal Lawyers Schwartz Posnock

It’s high season at Gunnison Beach in Sandy Hook, and as the temperatures rise, it looks like a record year for arrests for lewdness (charged under the Code of Federal Regulations Section 36 C.F.R. 7.29c), driving under the influence, possession of marijuana, and traffic violations. What many do not realize is that, due to Sandy Hook’s location in the Gateway National Recreation Area, these charges will land you in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey in Newark. If you are convicted of these criminal offenses, they cannot be expunged. Because of the prevalence and invasiveness of background checks, your career and your professional license may be at risk. The stakes couldn’t be higher. You need a skillful and experienced lawyer who knows the system, and appears frequently before Federal Magistrate Anthony Mautone in the United States District Court in Newark, New Jersey.

Very often, innocent behavior by same-sex individuals at Gunnison Beach is interpreted by Park Rangers – who scan the beach with binoculars – as lewd. Our job often involves convincing the United States Attorney and the Court that behavior observed over a period of just a few seconds by individuals unknown to the Rangers, is often misperceived, out of context, and colored by bias. We investigate and thoroughly evaluate our client’s entire visit to Gunnison Beach, the relationship of and between the people they are with, and the area on the beach in relation to other beach goers where the alleged acts were committed, all for the purpose of turning this perception and the bias inherent in the Ranger’s alleged observations to one that reflects innocent behavior and behavior that is not lewd.

It is critical to your success in these cases to have experienced and aggressive counsel who can successfully negotiate with the United States Attorney or take your case to trial. Our goal is all about obtaining the most positive result for you, so that your visit to the beach does not become a life-long impediment to your career, schooling, prospects to obtain a professional license, or advancement in the workplace.

For individuals who are facing prosecution or sentencing in the federal District Courts of NJ, the NJ Municipal criminal or traffic courts, the Superior Courts of New Jersey, or who are appealing their criminal matters before the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, the New Jersey Superior Court, NJ Appellate Division, or the Supreme Court of New Jersey, it is critical to have an experienced Federal, State and Municipal Court New Jersey criminal and traffic defense attorney represent you. The experienced criminal defense lawyers of Schwartz & Posnock appear in all Federal, State, Municipal criminal, and traffic courts in New Jersey, and have convenient locations in Monmouth County (Eatontown), Essex County (Livingston), Union County (Linden), and Middlesex County (East Brunswick).
