Criminal Attorney Helps Those Facing Falsifying Or Tampering With Public Records (N.J.S.A. 2C:21-4) Charges
Fraud takes many forms, but the common denominator in most fraud cases is the allegation that a person deceived another person for their own gain.
Under Falsifying Or Tampering With Public Records (N.J.S.A. 2C:21-4), creating false financial statements, or concealing, destroying, or falsifying any record with the purpose of deceiving or injuring another person, or concealing wrongdoing, are both criminalized.
Creating a false financial statement is a crime of the third degree, with a possible 3-5 year sentence if convicted.
Deceiving another through concealment, destruction, or falsification of records is a fourth degree crime, with an 18 month sentence possible if convicted.
These types of cases often involve multiple charges, requiring capable legal guidance that can focus on many parts at once.
