Those who engage in illegal manipulation of juries and jurors may be charged with Corrupting or Influencing a Jury (N.J.S.A. 2C:29-8) in New Jersey, and can face significant exposure to prison and fines depending on the particulars in the complaint.
As a base charge, Corrupting or Influencing a Jury is a third degree crime and carries a 3-5 year sentence if you’re convicted. If the conduct included force or threats of force, the charge is a second degree crime and carries a 5-10 year sentence.
