Under the New Jersey law (N.J.S.A. 2C:29-2), a person is guilty when he or she purposely prevents a law enforcement officer from effecting a lawful arrest. Here are some examples of resisting arrest:
Whenever you get convicted of a serious sex offense, Megan’s law applies.
This means that you will have to register as a “sex offender”.
You will have to notify the local police department that you are on the sex offender list & let them know where you live.
In addition, if you are convicted of an “internet sex crime” like child pornography, you will never be allowed to use the internet.
Endangering the welfare of a child in the second degree falls under Megan’s law.
You absolutely have a right to a trial.
Our Jersey City Criminal Lawyers will prepare your defense and take your matter to trial.
Remember: You are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
(1) Any person having a legal duty for the care of a child or who has assumed responsibility for the care of a child who engages in sexual conduct which would impair or debauch the morals of the child is guilty of a crime of the second degree. Any other person who engages in conduct or who causes harm as described in this paragraph to a child is guilty of a crime of the third degree.
(2) Any person having a legal duty for the care of a child or who has assumed responsibility for the care of a child who causes the child harm that would make the child an abused or neglected child as defined is guilty of a crime of the second degree. Any other person who engages in conduct or who causes harm as described in this paragraph to a child is guilty of a crime of the third degree.
This is a very difficult question to answer.
For example, you may get arrested because of a “false accusation”.
Oftentimes, these cases come out of DYFS investigations.
If you are facing child support problems, the parent of your child may lie about you to get the upper hand.
It is important to examine all of the evidence against before we develop a defense theory.
Remember, when you talk to a police officer, everything you say can & will be used against you.
Do not try to explain your story to a police officer. There is always time for that.
If you make a mistake while you are telling your story to a police officer, this becomes evidence against you.
Be patient and hire a NJ Endangering the Welfare of a Child lawyer to help you with your criminal case.
