Defense Lawyer Helps With Perjury (N.J.S.A. 2C:28-1) Charges
Individuals involved in official legal proceedings are obligated to be truthful in their testimony.
If you make statements under oath, or verify past statements under oath, that you believe are not true, then you can be prosecuted under New Jersey’s Perjury statute, N.J.S.A. 2C:28-1.
Under this law, you’ll be charged with a third degree crime for each count, and face between 3-5 years in prison if you’re convicted.
Perjury is a very serious charge, but there are defenses against allegations that you lied on the stand.
By working with a criminal defense attorney, you stand the best chance of overcoming the charges against you and saving your reputation and your freedom.
