As an experienced New Jersey Criminal Defense Attorney I often deal with college student who have been arrested for graffiti charges. Say you’re a college student and the police saw you in the act of defacing some property by putting some graffiti, spray paint, or now people use the stickers. It’s not the most serious charge, but it’s certainly something you should think about with regard to what overall effect that would have on my permanent record.
You should seek out an attorney’s advice. You should discuss the specific charge, whether you’re charged with a municipal ordinance or what they call a 2-C violation, which is a criminal offense. You should certainly get a reasonable consultation. I offer free consultations from my office either in person or on the phone so give me a call.
Graffiti Charges | Hiring an Attorney
As an experienced New Jersey Criminal Defense Attorney I am often asked by college students if they should hire an Attorney for minor charges. I would suggest that you at least get the advice of an attorney. Speak to a lawyer to see what your options are, and see what you’re facing to make sure you don’t get all of your information from the Internet. Here I am giving you information on the Internet, but I must tell you there’s nothing better than speaking to an attorney who’s been there, who’s done it for hundreds of people, and has helped hundreds of people. That’s a better way of getting all your information to decide whether or not it’s worth your time, and effort, and financial obligation to hire an attorney.
