Re: 2c:33-2a(1)

This is a Petty Disorderly Person's offense, with a maximum penalty of 1 month in jail and $500 in fines. I would need to get more details from you before I can give you a full answer about what you can expect in court. I am an attorney who has handled many cases similar to yours in various courts in New Jersey in the past. Please contact me to discuss your case. I never charge for simply talking to a person about their case. Thank you.

Sincerely yours, -Ronald Aronds, Esq.-

If you have no record, you should get just a fine. However, you will have a criminal record as a result of this offense. Thus, I suggest you get a lawyer to fight for you unless you just don't care about having a record.
