Criminal Lawyer For False Representation (N.J.S.A. 2C:21-7.3)
Protecting religious minorities is one of the most important civil rights roles for a government, and in New Jersey, our state takes very seriously the dietary needs of Jewish citizens who keep kosher.
Businesses that engage in deceptive practices when it comes to providing customers with kosher foods may find their owners charged with a disorderly persons offense under the False Representation statute (N.J.S.A. 2C:21-7.3).
If convicted, you can be imprisoned for as long as six months, but more importantly, your business will be wide open to civil claims from customers and the state’s inspectors may even be able to shut you down.
Operating in good faith and maintaining proper documentation is your biggest weapon in avoiding a False Representation charge, but if things have fallen through the cracks and you’re being investigated for claims of deceptive business practices, you need to get help right now.
Matthew Reisig is an experienced criminal defense attorney in New Jersey who knows how to protect business owners against allegations of wrongdoing.
