Defense Lawyer Helps With Crime Of Pattern Of Official Misconduct (N.J.S.A. 2C:30-7) Charges
When two or more instances of official misconduct can be proven, New Jersey public officials can be charged with Crime of Pattern of Official Misconduct (N.J.S.A. 2C:30-7).
If the official misconduct is itself a crime of the first or second degree, N.J.S.A. 2C:30-7 can be charged as a second degree crime, with a 5-10 year sentence if convicted.
Otherwise, the charge is a third degree crime with a sentence of 3-5 years.
Unlike many other third degree crimes, the presumption of non-incarceration won’t apply in your case, so you should expect jail time if you’re convicted.
