Palisades False ID Charge Reduced

Published in Criminal Defense

Recently, a college student found himself in the unsettling position of being charged with possession of a fraudulent driver’s license after a series of events at a local park ended with a police officer requesting to see his identification. The man knew that this type of conviction could have significant and long-lasting consequences. Since he did not want to see his record unnecessarily tarnished, he reached out to Bhatt Law Group and our experienced New Jersey criminal defense lawyers.

In an effort to find the best possible outcome for this young client, we began navigating the generally complicated Palisades Interstate Municipal Court process. Ultimately, this led to a negotiation where we successfully arraigned to have his criminal charge reduced to a less severe local ordinance citation. Our client ended up paying a simple court fine, but would not see any persisting ramifications to his criminal record.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
