What You Need to Know about New Jersey Theft and Fraud Charges

The types of crimes listed above are considered by NJ law to be “crimes involving moral turpitude.” Crimes of moral turpitude are usually accompanied a period of incarceration in county jail or prison, steep fines, probation, community service, and other short-term and long-term consequences including damaged reputation. For non-U.S. citizens, deportation is an additional consequence of conviction. Additionally, the stigma of a conviction for a crime of moral turpitude can be debilitating to career and educational opportunities. Our criminal defense firm is dedicated to helping clients avoid these harsh penalties. Ocean County fraud and theft attorney William Proetta and his team of lawyers have handled a broad array of cases in Municipal and Superior Court throughout New Jersey.

Our attorneys focus upon analyzing each client’s particular situation in order to determine what legal options are available. We work with our clients throughout the process to carefully outline a case strategy customized to the particular facts of their case. Next, we negotiate with prosecutors for reduced charges, lighter penalties and alternative arrangements. If and when litigation is necessary to obtain the best possible results, we do not hesitate to take cases to trial on behalf of the interests of our clients. We discuss each aspect of the case with our clients along the way, ensuring that they feel “in the loop” and are comfortable with the decisions that we are making on their behalf.
