Urinating in Public - NJ
Neptune, NJ - outside Headliner's ''bar/club'' - walking ad-hoc police officer confronted me standing by the rear of my car, opposite his clear site of vision. he wrote me a summons with a mandatory court date. I denied the action, but did not give the officer trouble and told him I would just fight it in court. the other ''good cop'' said it would be ''just a fine,'' but these are not ''real'' officers, so i assume i cannot trust their adolescent judgement. I've done research and was utterly shocked by the rumors of a possible linkage to a ''sex offender'' for public urination? Further analysis showed that such a verdict is only possible if done in broad daylight in front of children, etc., so this was after midnight on an empty street next to the establishment. do i need a lawyer? would this classification be possible? what would the fine be? i appreciate any advice one may offer.
