Have You Been Accused Of Official Misconduct?
To avoid corruption or other acts that may tarnish the confidence citizens have in their government, New Jersey has enacted some of the toughest laws covering acts of official misconduct. In short, as a public servant working for or with a municipal, state or other government entity in New Jersey, you are held to a high standard of ethical and professional conduct.
Obtain A Higher Standard Of Legal Representation
If you have been accused of bribery, forgery, theft, receiving stolen property or other unlawful actions while employed by or working with the government, you may face harsh penalties associated with official misconduct. If convicted of a crime that directly involved your role as a government employee, you could be sentenced to a mandatory minimum prison term without eligibility for parole. Furthermore, your reputation will be permanently tarnished and it may be difficult to pursue future employment with either the government or the private sector.
