Criminal Lawyer For Defrauding Secured Creditors (N.J.S.A. 2C:21-12)
When a person or entity has a security interest, they have a right to enforce that interest.
Taking action to defraud them through removal, concealment, destruction, encumbrance, or transfer is a crime of the fourth degree under the statute Defrauding Secured Creditors (N.J.S.A. 2C:21-12).
New Jersey prosecutors can come after you for up to 18 months in prison and fines of $10,000.
While the state has a presumption of non-incarceration for fourth degree crimes, being convicted will leave you with a felony record for a financial crime.
You can imagine the impact on your career and earnings with a conviction for a crime like this in your background.
Allegations of fraud and financial crimes can be devastating, and the impact on your future is severe.
